The Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ) is a psychological measurement to explore mindfulness. It is based on five independently developed mindfulness questionnaires that are bound together in a factor analytic study. The questionnaire consists of 39 items. The five facets are: observing, describing, acting with awareness, non-judging of inner experience, and non-reactivity to inner experience.


The FFMQ has been criticised, with specifics including that negative and positive wording constituted substantive method effects.[1]
