Because participants reported thinking about transition after completing the GRRS items in the first study, the TCS and two gender congruence questions followed the GRRS.
The 15 GRRS items were first evaluated for skewness and kurtosis.
The additional fit statistics for the 15-item GRRS provided support for the three-factor model, CFI = .
Internal consistency reliability for the GRRS was assessed using Cronbach's alpha, [alpha] = .
When comparing correlations between the GRRS and subscales, with the RRQ and RRS subscales, we observed that there was a stronger distinction between respective subscales of the GRRS and the RRQ when compared to the GRRS and the RRS.
Conceptualized from the experience of being transgender, the GRRS measures the extent to which a person thinks about one's gender identity.
Factor analyses on the GRRS indicated three unique components of gender identity rumination: reflection, rumination, and preoccupation with others' perceptions.
The positive correlations between the GRRS and the general rumination questionnaires suggest that the items included in the GRRS measure similar style thoughts.
Comparisons of the relationships between the GRRS subscales and the RRS and RRQ suggested the GRRS was more comparable to the RRQ than to the RRS.
The purpose of developing the GRRS was to provide a measure of rumination that would be sensitive to the experiences of being transgender.
2003; RRQ, Trapnell & Campbell, 1999), the GRRS yielded positive and negative components (reflection and rumination) of gender identity rumination.
The current findings also indicated a strong distinction of GRRS reflection and identity salience in comparison to all other measures of rumination.
