This study aimed to examine the psychometric properties (validity and reliability) of the listening style scale in couples. The research method was descriptive correlational. The statistical population consisted of all couples in Isfahan. Of these, 200 persons were selected through accessible sampling method and responded to couples' listening style questionnaires (duel, 2003) and the need for cognition (Kaciopo et al, 1984). In order to investigate the construct validity of this scale, was used of confirmatory factor analysis method, internal consistency and correlation with the questionnaire need for cognition and for the reliability of the scale, the Cronbach's alpha coefficient. The findings of the study indicated that the confirmatory factor analysis model indicated the appropriate fitting of the research data with the functional structure of the listening style scale. Also, the internal consistency method expresses the structure validity of this scale. The obtained Cronbach's alpha coefficient also indicates the stability of the listening style scale. Correlation coefficients was significant between comprehension listening style and need for cognition at the level of 0.01 and with respond listening style at the level of 0.05. Based on these results, we can use the listening style scale of duel as a suitable measurement tool in couples research.
