Friendship can be evaluated in a variety of ways. On the basis of his previous work, Arunkumar and Dharmangadan proposed a measure of friendship relation. This paper describes the Polish adaptation of The Friendship Intensity Measurement Scale (FIMS). There is presented the theoretical framework of the questionnaire and the process of adaptation to the Polish cultural setting. Reliability and validity of the Polish version of the FIMS were established in the two pilot studies on a sample of 189 women and 242 men, aged 19-41. There was assessed, mainly, the internal consistency of the subscales and performed exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis to verify the assumed structure of the questionnaire. The results document good psychometric properties of the questionnaire, although some suggestions for enhancements and more in-depth studies are also formulated.
