Recent research suggests that some of the wording of the original Self‐Consciousness Scale is too abstract for easy understanding by research participants who are not college students. This article presents a revised version of that scale, along with information regarding its psychometric properties. In general, the psychometric properties of the revised scale compare quite favorably to those of the original scale. It is suggested that the revised Self‐Consciousness Scale be used whenever data are collected from populations other than college students.
