The aim of this study was to develop a reliable questionnaire, which measures disgust sensitivity on a Portuguese population. The development of the questionnaire was based on the translation of German items of the Questionnaire for the Assessment of Disgust Sensitivity from Schienle et al. 2002 into the Portuguese language.The Questionnaire (FFE-PORT) was given to 321 students aged 18 to 69 studying at the University Sao Paulo (Brazil). In order to validate the FEE-PORT the students were asked to complete further questionnaires measuring depression and social anxiety. An Exploratory Promax-rotated Principal axes Factor Analysis could find three factors which can be described as ?Contamination based disgust?, ?Animal reminder disgust?, and ?Core disgust?. The interne consistency (Cronbach ?) of the FEE-PORT is ?=.907 and can therefore be considered as more than satisfactory. The interne consistence of the subscales are ?=.875 for ?Contamination based disgust?, ?=.833 for the subscale ?Animal reminder disgust? and ?=.695 for the subscale ?Core disgust?.For the validation the participants completed two further questionnaires mentioned above. This demonstrated positive correlations between the FEE-PORT and the Portuguese questionnaire measuring social anxiety (r=.218, p<.01). Different results could be proven for men and women with regard to the Portuguese version of the questionnaire measuring depression. Women showed positive correlations between the FEE-PORT and the Portuguese version of the questionnaire measuring depression (r=.289, p<.05) while no correlation could be seen for men, concerning these questionnaires.Significant differences could be seen in the disgust sensitivity between Portuguese speaking men and women. Women showed higher disgust sensitivity. The FEE-PORT can be seen as an adequate questionnaire to measure disgust sensitivity in a Portuguese speaking population.
