Background: Cognitive insight is a complex and multidimentional concept. The clinical measurements of insight have focused primarily on patients’ unawareness of their having a mental disorder and of their need for treatment. Modern approaches have focused on some of the cognitive processes involved in patients’re-evaluation of their anomalous experiences and of their specific misinterpretations. The aim of this study was the examination of factor structure of the Beck Cognitive Insight Scale (BCIS) in a nonclinical iranian sample. Materials and Methods: For this purpose, 476 university students, completed the Beck Cognitive Insight Scale (BCIS). The data were analyzed by LISREL and SPSS softwares. Results: The results showed that 2 main factors: Self-reflectiveness and Self-certainty which had been revealed primarily by Beck and his colleagues (2004) have been obtained as independent subscales in this research too. Conclusion: The results provided tentative support for the factor structure of the BCIS, and suggest that the BCIS is a valid measure to use in a non-clinical population.
