The results of exploratory factor analysis (EFA) are usually used to deduce theoretical models (Arruda et. al., 1996) and then confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) is used to demonstrate the construct validity of those deductions. Therefore, models obtai - ned from the former are ussually validated using latter. The object of this study is to demonstrate the redundancy of this procedure in construct validation. It will be shown that, usually, CFA will validate solutions obtained using EFA. This article emphasizes that this type of procedure does not offer definitive information about the construct validity of the solutions obtained using exploratory factor analysis. In this sense, the EFA-CFA binomial could be considered as a pseudo construct validation.
