Five Factor Personality Test

Thank you for your interest in this online personality test, which is based on an International Personality Item Pool representation of the Five Factor Model of personality. The Five Factor Model (also known as the "Big 5") is based on the idea that five main dimensions are necessary and sufficient for broadly describing human personality.

The next page contains the 41 items of the test and some additional questions. Once you have filled these in and submitted the test for scoring, you will be told your scores on these five basic dimensions and given some information about what they mean.

This version of the inventory was developed for use in online psychological research projects and at times may still be used to collect data. Additional questions may also be added from time to time. However, it is possible to take the test without your data being used in research, and you will have the opportunity to request this.
