  • In typical deductive test construction, the deduction leads to item writing; however, in replicated rational selection, deduction leads instead to item selection from a fixed item pool. In the replicated rational selection approach, lay item selectors are first trained to understand a psychological construct. Then the item selectors examine the defined pool of items, designating any items they feel tap the construct they have studied. However, unlike previous deductive systems in which the task is entrusted to one or two item writers or selectors, initial item selection is replicated across many selectors. Items that are repeatedly picked across the sample of selectors are used to form preliminary scales.

The Big Five The Big Five Presentation Transcript

  • The Personality Psychopathology Five (PSY-5) William P. Wattles, Ph.D. Francis Marion University
  • Five-factor model (FFM)
    • One of the more prominent models in contemporary psychology is what is known as the five-factor model of personality.
    • A dimensional rather than categorical approach from 1933
    • “ If this hypothesis is correct—if we have truly discovered the basic dimensions of personality—it marks a turning point for personality psychology.”
    • McCrae RR, John OP. 1992. An introduction to the Five Factor Model and its applications. J. Pers. 60:175 215
  • The five-factor model of personality
    • The five-factor model of personality is a hierarchical organization of personality traits in terms of five basic dimensions: Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Neuroticism, and Openness to Experience.
  • The common variance among personality traits
    • can be understood in terms of the five factors of.
      • conscientiousness
      • agreeableness
      • neuroticism
      • openness
      • extroversion-introversion
        • Costa, P. T. & McCrae, R. R. (1995). Psychological Bulletin , Vol 117(2), Mar 1995. pp. 216-220.
  • Current consensus
    • The five factors are
    • conscientiousness
    • agreeableness
    • neuroticism
    • openness
    • extroversion-introversion
    CANOE
  • Current consensus
    • The five factors are
    • openness
    • conscientiousness
    • extroversion-introversion
    • agreeableness
    • neuroticism
    OCEAN
  • Openness
    • Openness refers to how willing people are to make adjustments in notions and activities in accordance with new ideas or situations
    • appreciation for art, emotion, adventure, unusual ideas, imagination, curiosity, and variety of experience
  • Conscientiousness
    • Conscientiousness refers to how much a person considers others when making decisions.
    • tendency to show self-discipline, act dutifully, and aim for achievement; planned rather than spontaneous behaviour.
  • Extroversion
    • Extroversion is defined as a trait characterized by a keen interest in other people and external events, and venturing forth with confidence into the unknown.
    • energy, positive emotions, surgency , and the tendency to seek stimulation and the company of others
  • Agreeableness
    • Agreeableness measures how compatible people are with other people, or basically how able they are to get along with others
    • a tendency to be compassionate and cooperative rather than suspicious and antagonistic towards others.
  • Neuroticism
    • Neuroticism is a dimension of personality defined by stability and low anxiety at one end as opposed to instability and high anxiety at the other end.
    • a tendency to experience unpleasant emotions easily, such as anger, anxiety, depression, or vulnerability
    • People at the extremes one or more of the five variables are likely to have some sort of psychological abnormality associated with that trait.
    • People are likely to select their environment in such a way that this trait is perpetuated.
    • To keep this cycle from iterating, psychologists make their patients come to terms with the flawed trait, allowing the patient to break the cycle
    • Individual differences
    • Situational constraints
    • The Big Five personality traits are empirical observations, not a theory
  • Five-dimension model
    • I. Aggressiveness,
    • II. Psychoticism,
    • III. Constraint,
    • IV. Negative Emotionality/Neuroticism
    • V. Positive Emotionality/Extraversion
  • I. Aggressiveness
    • Aggressiveness entails dispositional differences in agonal behavior, particularly offensive aggression
  • I. Aggressiveness
    • grandiosity versus egalitarianism
    • If you see yourself on approximately the same level as most others, this tends to inhibit aggressiveness, whereas genocide and less malignant forms of aggression count heavily on perceptions of differential worth.
  • I. Aggressiveness
    • The desire for power and influence are also features of PSY-5 Aggressiveness
    • Enjoyment of intimidating others to achieve one’s goals.
  • II. Psychoticism
    • Psychoticism assesses the gross verisimilitude of our inner models of the outer social and object world.
  • II. Psychoticism
    • Although all of us have illusions, misperceptions, and mistaken beliefs, only a few have delusions and hallucinations.
    • Disconnection from reality, unshared beliefs, unusual sensory and perceptual experiences
    • Feel alienated with unrealistic expectation of harm
  • III. Constraint
    • Constraint combines features of
      • Control versus Impulsiveness
      • Harm-avoidance (physical risk aversion)
      • Traditionalism (a dimension ranging from moral conservatism to the orientation of the libertine ).
  • III. Constraint
    • This Constraint dimension is relevant to personality psychopathology in that it has obsessive–compulsive personality disorder at one end and antisocial personality disorder at the other end
  • III. Constraint
    • Someone low in PSY-5 Constraint would be impulsive, a risk taker and excitement seeker.
  • IV. Negative Emotionality/Neuroticism
    • A broad affective disposition to experience negative emotions, especially anxiety and nervousness.
  • V. Positive Emotionality/Extraversion
    • A broad disposition to experience positive affects to seek out and enjoy social experiences, and to have the energy to pursue goals and be engaged in life's tasks.
    • The PSY-5 constructs are models of traits designed to aid in personality description and to complement personality disorder diagnosis with quantitative dimensions.
  • PSY-5 Interpretation
    • The Personality Psychopathology Five represent five important differences between adaptive and nonadaptive personality style.
    • Interpret low scores only for INTR and DISC scales
    • Page 173
  • Aggressiveness (AGGR)
    • High scores
    • Grandiose
    • Resentful
    • Cold
    • at times cruel.
    • This scale assesses a sort of hostile narcissist.

    • High scores
    • have-poor reality testing
    • Suspicious
    • hostile.
    • 2. Psychoticism (i.e., does the person have a healthy contact with reality, or is the person likely to have unrealistic beliefs, misperceptions, and psychotic experiences?).

    • Unreliable
    • Rebellious
    • Hedonistic

    • Low scores ( ≤ 40)
    • Self-controlled and not impulsive
    • Do not take may physical risks
    • High tolerance for boredom

    • Worry
    • Stress
    • Hypersensitivity
    • emotional under control.
    • 4. Negative Emotionality/Neuroticism (NEM; i.e., is the person tense, anxious, and likely to experience negative affect?).
  • Introversion/Low Positive Emotionality (INTR)
    • High scores have low energy, withdrawn, anhedonia, and low self-esteem;
    • Schizoid or impoverished emotional life.
    • Low Positive Emotionality
    • 5. Positive Emotionality/Extraversion (PEM; i.e., is the person energetic and interested in social contacts or anhedonic and withdrawn?)
  • Introversion/Low Positive Emotionality (INTR)
    • Low scores ( ≤ 40)
    • Able to experience joy
    • Sociable
    • Lots of energy
  • Scale Development
    • Replicated rational selection was developed to identify potential items.
    • One effect of using replicated rational selection is to build highly obvious rather than subtle scales.
    • 114 undergraduates
    • No item is used in more than one PSY-5 scale.
  • Item example
    • For example, 95% of the item selectors trained in the nervous versus calm aspect of Negative Emotionality/Neuroticism picked MMPI–2 Item 405, I am usually calm and not easily upset .
  • Reliability and Validity
    • These are enduring personality characteristics so they should be stable.
    • PSY-5 scales are generally temporally stable.
  • Reliability and Validity
    • The college sample total screened sample size is 2,928 (1,150 men, 1,778 women)
    • The Psychiatric A sample is a composite sample of 328 patients (184 men, 144 women) in chronic care
