The current study was done in order to examine the psychometric properties of Persian Version of Dispositional Flow Scale-2 (DFS-2) among Iranian athletes. The original Dispositional Flow Scale-2 contains 36 items and nine subscales. The Dispositional Flow Scale-2 was distributed among the 1180 Iranian athletes with an average age of 20/4 year from different sports. To determine the internal consistency, temporal stability, the validity of exploratory construct and model confirmation,

The results showed that Dispositional Flow Scale-2 with nine factors, explained %72/527 of total variance and has acceptable internal consistency (0/86) and temporal stability (0/85). Structure of the Dispositional Flow Scale-2 had acceptable fit with the data and all the indicators of goodness of fit confirmed the model. Overall, it seems the Dispositional Flow Scale-2 (DFS-2) has the required validity and reliability for implementation and Interpretation among Iranian athletes.
