How does it work?
(Please read before starting)
This questionnaire is used in real psychological research.
It measures what many psychologists consider to be the five fundamental
dimensions of personality. There are no foreseeable risks to you from taking
this questionnaire, the results of which are free, however if you are easily
offended then it is recommended that you do not answer this questionnaire.
Alternatively, if you answer it but are then offended, then you should remove
the results from your Personality Profile.
By providing you with your five trait scores, this questionnaire
gives you a structured and organised way to describe your personality. This
offers you a framework to understand yourself, to understand other people,
to make comparisons, to consider the advantages and disadvantages of your
personality, and to consider how your personality will impact upon your
work and social lives. Since you are describing yourself, you should not
expect this questionnaire to magically tell you things about yourself that
you do not already know, as that simply is not how professional personality
questionnaires work. It is also acceptable for you to disagree with the
questionnaire's interpretation of your results, although you should also
question why the questionnaire described you in a way that you disagree
To receive the most accurate results, you should complete
the questionnaire in a quiet environment. You should specifically avoid
taking the questionnaire while others are watching your responses.
may use your personality trait scores for research in an anonymous manner
such that it cannot be traced back to you. You can withdraw your consent
for your information to be used in this way at any time by resetting your
personality profile, at which point your information will be deleted.
