Circadian Type Inventory (CTI)
The CTI was initially developed to identify individuals capable of adapting to shift work. Thus, the scale assesses two factors that influence a person’s ability to alter his or her sleeping rhythms: rigidity/flexibility of sleeping habits and ability/inability of overcome drowsiness . Since its creation, the scale has undergone a number of revisions to improve its psychometric properties. An 18-item version was used as part of the larger Standard Shiftwork Index (SSI) in a study conducted by Barton and colleagues . This shorter scale was then reduced and altered to make an 11 item scale by De Milia et al. .
