Question

Through a survey, I have measured the Big Five Personality traits and Task Performance.
Now I'm about to do the regression analysis, however, I'm not sure if I should do a simple linear or multiple linear regression.
In the case of openness when I run a simple linear regression (DV: task performance IV: openness) my results are:
Sign: .001
Unstandardized B= .494
so the results are positive & significant
But when I run multiple linear regression (DV: task performance, IV: openness, conscientiousness, agreeableness, extraversion, neuroticism) my results for example for openness are:
Sign: .311
Unstandardized B= .110
so the results are positive & not significant
Now, I'm confused about which one should I use and why.
Relevant answer
Answer
The multiple regression result shows you that there is partial redundancy between the independent variables (they are correlated and overlap in terms of "explaining" the DV). Openness is no longer a significant predictor once the other predictors are in the model because one or more of them accounts for (partially) the same portion of variance as does openness.
Another issue could be overfitting. With additional correlated predictors, standard errors will become larger, reducing statistical power. Therefore, with more predictors in the model, previously significant predictor variables may become insignificant.
The question is what you want to find out. If your goal is to determine the most relevant predictor variables then the multiple regression model would be preferred because it accounts for the redundancy of the predictors. Depending on your sample size, you may not have enough power though given the number of predictors.

I've developed a work personality inventory and want to make sure my questions are valid. For each question, there is a choice of 8 responses corresponding to the different work personality types. I have asked a pilot sample to select their first, second and third most preferred answers but now I'm stuck. ts similar to a mostly A's are a certain type, mostly B's are another type and mostly C's are another type ...x 8. But now I want the responses to be mixed up. How do I assign who fits into which personality type? Please refer me to any articles, references or guides? Any advise would be so appreciated
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Jeanine, Your survey design is pretty complicated. Maybe make each of your questions into 8 questions, so item 1 becomes 1a, 1b, ..., 1h.. In cells put each participant's choice: 1 for 1st, 2 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, and 4 for the rest. You can do a factor analysis and you're hypothesizing all the a's load together, all the b's together, etc. Hopefully you have 8 reliable scales. If people actually are types, you can make a histogram of each scale and they should be bimodal, so you have one group of low scorers (if 1 is 1st choice) and then a much larger group of high scorers (with almost all 4's). Hope this helps. -Maddie.

I have a long survey that includes the BFI-2-S along with other preference related questions, I want to incorporate a questionnaire about MBTI as well. However, the survey is too long and I need a very short or abbreviated form for MBTI; maybe like a 3 to 4 questions per domain (mind, energy, nature, tactics). Is there something already tested or is it okay to make up single-choice questions about each of MBTI four domains' traits? I prefer if there is a 5-point scale abbreviated inventory.
Relevant answer
Answer
My first question concerns why you would want to use MBTI in the first place. What will a few questions about the MBTI "dimensions" add to your research?
My understanding is that the MBTI is more lore than science in that many of the assertions about the MBTI do not hold up to rigorous analyses.
If I am wrong about the research about the MBTI, perhaps someone can provide clarification.

Stephen Joy , back-translating, Good thought, I actually do that maybe whit out thinking of it this way with 2 persons.. But as a none native English, I "crossfire" it so to speak in language translating programs. First Swedish into English and back again from English to Swedish. (some tímes even over again) to check if the context remains or changes. It gives one a great input in nuances within the language. I.e., like differences in using therefore versus therefor or even there-fore.

I am thinking in applying the Exploratory Structural Equation Modelling (ESEM) technique to evaluate the factor structure of a personality inventory. I have recently read about Set-ESEM, which Marsh et al. (2019) described as follows:
In Set-ESEM, two or more a priori sets of constructs are modeled within a single model such that cross-loadings are permissible within the same set of factors (as in Full-ESEM) but are constrained to be zero for factors in different sets (as in CFA).
I know that the psych package in R can perform ESEM analysis, but I was wondering if it is possible to use this or another package in order to conduct Set-ESEM.

Answer
The EVALART 5 Factors Test is an inventory that evaluates the 5 great personality factors: Extraversion, Kindness, Responsibility, Emotional Stability, and Openness to Experience, and is based on the studies of Tupes and Christal (1961) and Norman (1963), who based on the Lexical model of personality, raised the 5 basic characteristics that define personality. The results offer a numerical report on the level that each candidate presents in the characteristics, as well as an exhaustive description of the behaviors , motivations and trends of the same.
The test is sufficiently substantiated at the research level, so it is widely validated when evaluating personality. It also offers a User Manual, which guides the user when carrying out the selection and recruitment process, as it informs about the typical behavioral and emotional patterns that can be found in the different Organizational and Company roles.

Hi, I'm trying to divide my participants into 2 groups based on being "extrovert" or " introvert". In the manual I see no guidelines on how to classify a person as extrovert or introvert.
I looked up the information on some non-authentic sources, and they instruct that there are 24 ,24 and 9 for extrovert, neurotic and lie score. The more point you have the more extrovert, neurotic you are.
That being said, I have 2 questions:
what would you rate a participant 's personality if they score 12/24 in Extrovert scale, is the person an I or an E ?
A person with larger than 5 score in lie scale will be as trustworthy as someone who score below 5 ? or should they be eliminated from the respondent list ?

Do you have the complete "specimen bag" of said Test ?; At least, as it is marketed in Spain by the TEA (Associated Technical Specialists -AST in English-) house, this entails, as with all tests, its pertinent correction template, by virtue of which, it is corrected by adding in each subscale a point in each item marked on the Answer Sheet, according to said Template; although it can also be corrected by computer, with the "ad hoc" keys / program. The Manual, as is always the case and in all Psychometric Tests, does not indicate the scores obtained, etc. For this, there are the indicated templates or the program for the computer.

For what ever reason, I got to know your question just today - means far to late.
However, you could have been a bit smarter and sent an email asking me directly. We translated or prepared the TCI-R for publication, published about the comparison between the German version of the TCI and the TCI-R in Psychological Reports. However, the 5-point Likert type answer model did not work well (neither in German nor in Swedish). Too many midpoint answers making the 5-point answer model highly questionable. Cloninger never published a detailed item analysis neither for the TCI nor for the TCI-R, as far as I know. Therefore, Sven Brândström and I decided that we should work with the true-false answer model for the TCI-R as well. Bob Cloninger did not like autonomous decisions. Some German colleagues are still working with this version of the TCI-R since this is the latest one with available German norms. Best Jörg Richter

I'm an undergrad psychology student writing a paper on personality and I have come across the concept of orthogonality numerous times. I understand that it refers to the statistical independence of each variable, my question is what is the importance of this? Is orthogonality needed for analysis or is there another reason?
Relevant answer
Answer
Orthogonality is a mathematical term that translates to the measurement of a multidimensional construct, like personality, for the purpose of simply showing that each of the Big 5 traits is distinct and does not conceptually collapse into another trait.
If two variables, say, conscientiousness and neuroticism, were so correlated that one can be linearly predicted from the other, we would have no empirical basis on which to claim the two were separate traits.
Contrast orthogonality with collinearity.

Now I would like to calculate the NPI score for each participant, but the instructions are not really clear. Where do I find like a manual how to calculate the score? I want to devide the participants into two groups: maladaptive and adaptive narcissism

Thank you in advance.
Relevant answer
Answer
The NEO-FFI and NEO-PI are proprietary instruments, under copyright and offered for sale by the publisher ( https://www.parinc.com/Products/Pkey/274 ). You can't just post copies online. Here are your options:
1. Purchase copies from the publisher. You can administer the test on a computer (rather than paper-and-pencil) for a few dollars each, but I think you need to buy the Manual first. You might check with a professor to see if your department has the Manual and would be willing to use their authorization to buy copies.
2. Use a different test, one that is in the public domain or has been made available by its authors. The International Personality Item Pool (IPIP) may be helpful. I am not totally happy with their items, but the scores seem to correlate well with those from other five-factor inventories.

The advantage of the MMPI2-RF is the additional validity scales and its shorter length; having said that, you also lose a lot of the "extra" scales that have been developed for the MMPI-2 over the years. Because the MMPI2-RF items are all contained within the original MMPI-2, you can have the best of both worlds by administering the MMPI-2 and scoring both versions from the one administration. We use the MMPI-2 Extended Score Report (which gives RCS's for the clinical scales) and also the MMPI-2-RF Report; this can get pricey if you are doing large scale test administration, but it definitely gives you the best data. What you lose is the brevity of the RF...

Hi
In my research I am investigating the relationship between HEXACO personality Inventory 60-item and Organizational Citizenship Behaviour Motives Scale 10-item. I ran shapiro.test to check for normality and almost all variables were not normally distributed.
My first question: what correlation type is better to use?
Second, how to create a correlation matrix in Excel for the six traits (Honesty-Humility, Emotionality, Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness & Opennes to experience), and the OCB motives (impression management, organizational concern and prosocial values)?

Hi Rhea/Augusto,
Apparently there are more HEXACO versions for children ;-)! Maybe we should get together to share! I developed the HEXACO Simplified Personality Inventory (HEXACO-SPI), which is also suitable for children 11 years and older. It contains 96 items + 2 interstitial facets (Altruism and Proactivity = 104 items in total) and has been published in Dutch (in Gedrag & Organisatie), but an English version is available. The questionnaire has also been the basis of the Brief HEXACO Inventory (BHI), which has been published in JRP. If you’re interested, I can send you the English version.

Be careful. The NEO-RFFI-R is copyrighted. You must pay per use. It cannot be downloaded off of a website legally. If you publish anything using research from the NEO that you did not pay for, you may be charged.
Alternatively, the International Personality Item Pool (IPIP) is based on the NEO and is open access. All information about it can be found here: http://ipip.ori.org/
You can get all the items for the IPIP for free, and the website includes correlation information with the NEO. I strongly advise against using the NEO illegally or posting the form here. You can choose to purchase it if you prefer to use the NEO.

I've found the mean score is 15.3, but that's all the information I could find. Thanks.
Relevant answer
Answer
I do not think there are norms, strictly speaking, for this measure. It's mainly a research tool, not a commercial test, and can be used with various populations. As I understand it, the measure began (Raskin & Hall, 1979) as a 54-item scale, but was shortened to 40 items some years later (Raskin & Terry, 1988). There is also a 16-item form, and of course each would have different properties. 
Anyway, sample #1 from the 1988 article (N = 1,018 college students) had a mean of 15.55 and a standard deviation of 6.66 - it's encouraging that the paper you read had such a similar mean score. You could, I suppose, use those findings as norms, but you should not be surprised to obtain discrepant results. After all, normative attitudes (and even the subtle meanings of words) can change in 30 years! Not to mention in going from Berkeley, California to Newfoundland!

I'm working on a thesis about Borderline Personality Disorder and comoribidity with Drug Use Disorder. One purpose is to compare diagnosis made by SCID-II, SWAP-200 and PID-5. On literature I can't find how to scoring PID-5, or better, which result I have to consider pathological. For example, is it corret to consider 1-2 moderately pathological and 2-3 severely pathological? Or is the cut-off only 1.5?
Relevant answer
Answer
Sorry for this delayed response.
In the alternative DSM-5 model for personality disorders, criterion A (Level of Personality Functioning) is used to detect or diagnose the presence and severity of personality disorder, whereas criterion B (PID-5 traits) is used to describe the style/type of the personality disorder / or personality difficulties. In other words, a cut-off is not really relevant for the PID-5. 
For clinical purporses, I recommend to use a computerized version of the PID-5 and an excel scoring sheet for rapidly creating graphical profiles. 
In our clinical setting, we use this procedure, and we also use T-scores instead of raw-scores based on a normal population sample, which allows us to see where the patient is above the avarage and below the average - and we can also use one standard deviation (15) below or above 50 as indicator of a clinical significant score. 
Hopefully an officially available practitioner's guide will soon be published along with easy-to-use administration and scoring software.

Hi, I'm trying to score my participants score into their BigFive Personality but have not got the scoring sheet. Does anyone have it or know where can I get that?
Relevant answer
Answer
If you are using the hand-scored version of the NEO-PI-R, it is basically self-scoring. You peel back the top sheet to reveal the carbon copy beneath, which displays the points to be added for each response. Adding across the rows gives you the facet raw scores (e.g., N1, N2). Combining all facet scores with the same initial letter (e.g., N1 + N2 + ... + N6) yields the trait raw scores.
The profile sheets (sold with the kit) enable you to plot the raw scores onto T-Scores. (The T scale is shown to the left & right of the profile.)
If you are using the short form (NEO-FFI) it's basically the same, except that there are no facet scores.
If you are using a "bootleg" copy, then you may be out of luck. You could consult the Manual to see which items are scored on which factor  and create your own scoring instructions. But please be aware that you will be in violation of copyright laws, and your university's IRB will not be happy about that.

Here's a study using the CPI: Chronic trauma effects on personality traits in police officers.
By Leigh Wills, Jennifer; Schuldberg, David
Journal of Traumatic Stress, Mar 8 , 2016, No Pagination Specified.
The impact of cumulative occupational exposure to traumatic events (TEs), posttraumatic stress (PTS) symptoms, and work environment stress on personality traits over time was examined in 38 police officers from an urban agency. California Psychological Inventory (CPI) personality trait scores from prehire evaluations were compared with follow‐up CPI scores to test whether exposure to traumatic events was correlated with changes in traits from baseline to 5–10 years later. Measures of occupational TEs, PTS symptoms, and police work environment stress were administered. Mean trait scores declined on all CPI traits analyzed in the study. Trait change was evaluated using the Reliable Change Index; change in participants’ scores unlikely to occur by chance ranged from 11% to 63% in the traits examined. All participants reported substantial TE exposure. PTS symptoms were correlated with steeper decline in 4 of 5 traits, with effect sizes ranging from r = −.47 to r = −.67. Scores on measures of job‐related TEs were negatively correlated with only one CPI trait (empathy) at T2 (r = −.31), and were unrelated to slope of trait change. Work environment stress was significantly related to gender, with female officers reporting higher levels of operational (r = .45) and organizational (r = .54) stress.

Overview
The Test
The NEO PI-R is a measure of the five major domains of personality as well as the six facets that define each domain. Taken together, the five domain scales and thirty facet scales of the NEO PI-R facilitate a comprehensive and detailed assessment of normal adult personality. The NEO PI-R is recognized internationally as a gold standard for personality assessment. Today, reputable developers of personality tests for the occupational market will as a matter of course publish data on the relationship of their tests with the five factor model using one form or another of the NEO as the benchmark. The total amount of recent data from high level academic journals concerning the NEO PI-R underpins its quality.
Description of the domain and facet scales
Neuroticism: identifies individuals who are prone to psychological distress
Anxiety: level of free floating anxiety
Angry Hostility: tendency to experience anger and related states such as frustration and bitterness
Depression: tendency to experience feelings of guilt, sadness, despondency and loneliness
Self-Consciousness: shyness or social anxiety
Impulsiveness: tendency to act on cravings and urges rather than reining them in and delaying gratification
Vulnerability: general susceptibility to stress
Extraversion: quantity and intensity of energy directed outwards into the social world
Warmth: interest in and friendliness towards others
Gregariousness: preference for the company of others
Assertiveness: social ascendancy and forcefulness of expression
Activity: pace of living
Excitement Seeking: need for environmental stimulation
Positive Emotions: tendency to experience positive emotions
Openness to Experience: the active seeking and appreciation of experiences for their own sake
Fantasy: receptivity to the inner world of imagination
Aesthetics: appreciation of art and beauty
Feelings: openness to inner feelings and emotions
Actions: openness to new experiences on a practical level
Ideas: intellectual curiosity
Values: readiness to re-examine own values and those of authority figures
Agreeableness: the kinds of interactions an individual prefers from compassion to tough mindedness
Trust: belief in the sincerity and good intentions of others
Straightforwardness: frankness in expression
Altruism: active concern for the welfare of others
Compliance: response to interpersonal conflict
Modesty: tendency to play down own achievements and be humble.
Tender-Mindedness: attitude of sympathy for others.
Conscientiousness: degree of organization, persistence, control and motivation in goal directed behaviour
Competence: belief in own self efficacy
Order: personal organization
Dutifulness: emphasis placed on importance of fulfilling moral obligations
Achievement Striving: need for personal achievement and sense of direction
Self-Discipline: capacity to begin tasks and follow through to completion despite boredom or distractions.

Answer
Hello Karizza,
I use a variety of personality instruments in my consulting practice and use them as a framework for understanding how and why miscommunications occur.
You asked: How would my study contribute for the students and parents? And, would there be others that will benefit?
I am not sure what approach you are taking, but I imagine it is qualitative rather than quantitative.
If your study includes case studies of personality instruments being used by parents and college-students to improve their grade-point averages (or graduation rates), then your study could provide both parents and students with insights into how to enjoy "the college years".
For example, if parents who thrive on autonomy knew they may be perceived as neglectful or uncaring by children who thrive on involvement, support and warmth, they may seek ways to provide the type of support their child needs. If the roles are reversed, a college student who thrives on autonomy may become more understanding (and less resentful) of his/her parents' need for involvement.
Let me know if this answer is helpful. If it is, how else may I help you with your research?

I'm looking for the interpretation of the big Five 44 item inventory by Goldberg (1993). Since scores of the five factors are based on different totals, I'm unsure of how to interpret the data. Further, should I take the midpoint of the score range as a guide to help classify or dichotomise my data? For instance, if I score 29/40 on Extraversion (midpoint is 20), should this score be interpreted as falling in the Extraversion range?
Relevant answer
Answer
I quite agree with Stephen Benning that raw scores, in and of themselves, are meaningless in this situation. If the instrument you are using lacks adequate published norms (as may well be the case here), then you have two main options.
First, you can limit yourself to correlational analyses. In most cases, this will work fine. All you lose by not using standard scores is that the scores you are using may violate one or another of the assumptions we like to make before using parametric statistics. For example, the equal interval assumption may not hold. But as long as the violations aren't too egregious, it probably won't make a substantial difference to your results - statistics like the correlation coefficient are robust in the face of modest deviations. (If you're really worried about your data set, you could convert the scores to rank-order format and use Spearman's rho instead of Pearson's r (the formulas yield the same results, so you could just plug the rank-ordered data into a regular correlation program.)
Second, you can divide your own sample into high-scoring and low-scoring subgroups. One way of doing this is a median split: top 50% vs. bottom 50%. This retains all your cases, but some members of each group will be a lot like some members of the other. Alternatively, you could leave those in the middle out of these analyses and create "upper" and "lower" groups that are separated by some range of middle scores. In the educational testing literature, the usual rule is to compare the top 27% to the bottom 27%, but anything approximating this will probably work fine.
If you are planning to keep using the instrument in the same population for a while, you might consider developing your own local norms, as Goldberg suggests.
