This article studied the authenticity and validity of the Egyptian Version of Singelis’s (1994) 30-item Self-Construal Scale (SCS). The Participants in this study consisted of 419 undergraduate students where they completed (SCS) scale and the Individualism-Collectivism (IND-COL) Scale. Results of factor analysis showed two interpretations: Independent and Interdependent Self Construal in Egypt environment. The internal consistency of the Inter. and Ind. SC subscales were found to be 0.89, 0.27 respectively. The Cronbach alphas of the Inter. and Ind. SC subscales were found to be 0.83, and 0.46 respectively. The Inter. SC Positively related to Collectivism but no significant relationship was found between Ind. SC and Individualism. Possible culture limitations of Self-Construal are discussed.
