Résumé
The aim of this study was to present the initial validation of a new questionnaire, the Transition to
Retirement Questionnaire (TRQ) and to study its relationship with resistance to change and
personality dimensions. Based on Schlossberg's typology of the retired, the TRQ is designed to
assess five dimensions related to personal perceptions of transition to retirement, retirement, and
personal plans and activities. The sample consisted of 1,054 professionally active or retired adults
from the Swiss French-speaking Canton of Vaud. Exploratory principal components and confirmatory
factor analyses highlighted a five-factor solution that fit coherently with Schlossberg's typology.
Moreover, TRQ dimensions were related to resistance to change tendencies and personality dimensions.
The TRQ seems to be an interesting tool for use in research but also for interventions with
young retirees or people preparing for retirement.
