The Dimensional Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (DOCS) by Abramowitz et al. (2010) measures the severity of obsessive-compulsive symptoms and features good test statistical parameters. Aim of this work was the creation of a German-language version and their psychometric quality testing as well as a verification of any gender differences in regard of compulsiveness and potential relationships between aspects of compulsiveness and disgust. 752 subjects processed the translated version and further questionnaires measuring compulsiveness, depression, anxiety, disgust propensity and disgust sensitivity. The factor model of the original version could be fully justified by an Exploratory Promax-rotated Principal axes Factor Analysis and in satisfactory manner by confirmatory factor analysis. An item analysis yielded satisfying outcomes regarding the difficulty and discriminatory power of the items. The excellent internal consistency (Cronbach's ) of the German language DOCS is = .91, that of the four subscales, respectively in good area ( > .8). High correlation coefficients and non-significant differences between scale means indicate good test-retest reliability (6-week time interval). Positive correlations of DOCS scales with scales of compulsiveness (total scores DOCS & OCI-R: r = .71, p <.001), depression (DOCS & BDI: r = .58, p <.001), anxiety ( DOCS & BAI: r = .61, p <.001) and disgust (total scores DOCS & FEE: r = .22, p <.0017; DOCS & SEE: r = .37, p <.001) show the DOCS to have good convergent and acceptable divergent validity and point to a possible significance of disgust propensity and -sensitivity for (mainly contamination related) compulsiveness. Both constructs of disgust showed independently of each other, and independently of the anxiety and depression tendency, positive relationships with compulsiveness. Women are more likely to unacceptable thoughts and mental rituals than men.
