McGill Friendship Questionnaire- Friendship Functions

Author of Tool: 

Mendelson, M. J. & Aboud, F.

Background: 

The McGill Friendship Questionnaire – Friendship Functions (MFQ-FF) developed after the authors were involved in research on friendship in childhood and early adolescence (Aboud & Mendelson, 1996). The MFQ-FF seeks to examine 6 distinct friendship functions in late adolescence and adulthood. Individual friendships will vary in the degree to which they fulfill some or all of these functions.

Primary use / Purpose: 

The McGill Friendship Questionnaire- Friendship Function (MFQ-FF) consists of 30 items. It measures feelings about a friend/friendship in late adolescence and adulthood. It is divided into 6 subscales based on functions of friendship: stimulating companionship, help, intimacy, reliable alliance, self-validation, and emotional security. Statements of friendship functions are responded to on a 9-point scale from never (0) to always (8).

Psychometrics: 

The psychometric properties of the instrument have been examined by Mendelson and Aboud (1997). This unpublished manuscript is available below.
