In this study envy is defined as an emotion of particular complexity, unpleasant character, characterized by feelings of inferiority, hostility and resentment (related to the perception of injustice), produced by the realization that another person or group of persons enjoy a desired possession (subject, status, attribute). The objective of this research was to explore the envy of the adult population. To do this, we adapted an instrument easy to apply self-reported, based on the CIS developed by Carrasco, Gonzalez & Barrio (2004) and as a first step was to get evidence of content validity. After adapting the content of the items morphosemantical held an expert opinion for the analysis of content validity, using the index of Osterlind, selecting those with greater consistency (Iik ≥ 0.5) to form the final version of the questionnaire envy in adults (CEA) with 24 items representing adequately all the dimensions. In conclusion, the CEA is a suitable instrument for assessing the envy of a valid and reliable way, being composed of 24 items representing all theoretical dimensions proposed.
