This study was aimed to evaluate the psychometric properties of brief histrionic personality symptoms scale (BHPS). 322 university students were selected by using multi-stage cluster sampling. Initially the questionnaire was translated (backward and forward). Reliability of the scale was assessed by Cronbach's alpha, test-retest and splitting coefficient, which were 77.0, 89.0, 56.0, 49.0, 67.0, 71.0. The criterion validity was done with histrionic personality subscale from millon clinical multiaxial inventory and five-factor personality inventory. As well as its factor structure was assessed by using exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis, fit indexs of X2/df equal to 3.2, SRMR=0.07, CFI=0.90 and RMSEA=0.10. The results of the factor analysis indicated that BHPS has 2 factors, test the reliability of the scale by using Cronbach's alpha, retest and splitting coefficient reflects the reliability of the scale, the criterion validity of the questionnaire with other questionnaires showed desirable discriminant and convergence validity. In Overall, these findings indicated BHPS has good psychometric properties among Iranian students.
