10-Item Personality Inventory

The 10-Item Personality Inventory (TIPI; Gosling, Rentfrow, & Swann, 2003) measures the Big-Five personality dimensions of Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Emotional Stability, and Openness to Experience. These traits make up the most commonly accepted framework for personality research to date. The test is largely based on Goldberg's (1992) list of unipolar and bipolar Big-Five markers, adjectives from the BFI, and John and Srivastava's (1999) Adjective Checklist Big-Five markers. Each of the items on the scale is rated on a 7-point scale ranging from 1 (disagree strongly) to 7 (agree strongly). Since the 10-Item Personality Scale has only 2 items for each of the 5 scales (Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Emotional Stability and Openness) it suffers from low internal consistency, however its convergent validity with the Big-Five Inventory is excellent. The TIPI takes between one and two minutes to complete. In answering the 10 questions below, please decide which personality traits may or may not apply to you, and select a number next to each statement to rate the extent to which the pair of traits applies to you, even if one characteristic applies more strongly than the other.
