The main aim of the paper was to translate and, for the first time, evaluate the Polish GELOPH<15>. This is a 15-item
questionnaire for the subjective assessment of gelotophobia, the fear of being laughed at. Gelotophobia is seen as
an individual differences phenomenon at a sub-clinical level. The psychometric properties of the Polish version were
tested in two independently collected samples with a total N of 506 participants. The Polish GELOPH<15> yielded
good psychometric properties in terms of high reliability in both samples. The fear of being laughed at existed widely
independently from the participants’ age, sex, or marital status (being married or living with a partner vs. being single or
not living with a partner). The Polish GELOPH<15> can be seen as a reliable instrument for the subjective assessment
of gelotophobia for research and practical applications.
