Two studies are presented to introduce a 10-item short form of the Need for Affect Questionnaire (NAQ–S; cf. Maio & Esses, 2001). Study 1 was based on 4 independent samples (German or English language; N total = 2,151) and demonstrated the expected factorial structure of the NAQ–S; its measurement invariance with respect to gender, age, and education; and the predicted associations with relevant personality measures. A latent state-trait analysis conducted in Study 2 (N = 140) suggests that most of the reliable variance of the NAQ–S represents stable individual differences.
