Attitude towards time are usually expressed by means of metaphors. This paper presents phases of construction and validation of the Time Metaphors Questionnaire. This is a method for testing conceiving of time. An exploratory factor analyses yielded seven factor scales: Friendly Time, Hostile Time, Rapid Passage of Time, Significance of the Moment, Subtle Time, Wild Time and Empty Time. Results of correlations between scales of the Time Metaphors Questionnaire and with selected methods (Temporal Orientation Scale AION-2000, NEO-Five Factor Inventory) indicate, among other things, an ambivalence of psychological time and an importance of positive evaluation of current moment.
