Abstract

This research reexamines composing factors of the Five Love Languages. Previous research has shown differing results on this topic. The Five Love Languages were measured by adapting the Five Love Languages Scale. This scale was then modified to lengthen participants’ response range and add one ancillary item. The research sample comprised of 687 undergraduate students and selected through proportionate quota sampling. Sample age ranges were between 17 and 40 years old. Exploratory factor analysis showed items were laid out accordingly with factor loading for each item ranging from 0.463 up to 0.853. EFA also exhibited love language is constructed by four components. The unique aspect found on this research was sacrificial element.

Bahasa Abstract

Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk menguji kembali faktor penyusun komponen five love languages. Hal ini disebabkan temuan yang divergen pada penelitian-penelitian terdahulu. Variabel five love languages diukur dengan Skala Five Love Languages. Alat ukur kemudian dimodifikasi dengan memperpanjang rentang respon partisipan dan menambah satu butir tambahan. Sampel penelitian adalah 687 mahasiswa program sarjana yang dipilih menggunakan proportionate quota sampling. Rentang usia sampel adalah 17 sampai 40 tahun. Analisis faktor eksploratori memperlihatkan sebaran butir penyusun yang konvergen dengan rentang factor loading masing-masing butir terentang dari 0.463 hingga 0.853. Hasil EFA juga menunjukkan bahasa cinta tersusun dari empat aspek. Aspek unik pada temuan penelitian ini adalah aspek pengorbanan.
