The aim of this study was to investigate the dimensions underlies the Interpersonal Trust Scale using Exploratory Factor Analysis and Confirmatory Factor Analysis in emerging adulthood sample. Convenience sampling used as sampling technique for EFA (N=320) and CFA (N=485). Four dimensions identified using EFA were Exploitation Institutional Factor reflects one’s trust to an institution and also reflects caution to exploitative condition; Role Trust reflects one’s trust benign certain figure in performing their social role; Sincerity measures one’s trust that other are sincere and honest; and Trust of the Future reflects one’s trust about something that has not happened. This factor solution was cross-validated using CFA and obtain two remaining, namely Caution dan Sincerity. Reliability of this scale is inadequate for practical purpose and might be useful to use other technique for reliability testing instead of internal consistency.
