Neo pi

  1. 1. NEO-PI-R
  2. 2. The test was developed by Paul T. Costa, Jr. and Robert R. McCrae for use with adult (17+) men and women without overt psychopathology. The original version of the measurement, published in 1978, was the Neuroticism-Extroversion-Openness Inventory (NEO-I). This version only measured three of the Big Five personality traits. It was later revised in 1985 to include all five traits and renamed the NEO Personality Inventory (NEO PI). In this version, "NEO" was now considered part of the name of the test and was no longer an acronym. This naming convention continued with the third version, the NEO PI-R, published in 1990.
  3. 3. The NEO-PI-3, an update to the NEO Inventory, was published in 2005. A mnemonic device for the five primary factors is the acronym "OCEAN," or alternatively "CANOE". The short version, the NEO-Five Factor Inventory (NEOFFI), has 60 items (12 items per domain).  The NEO PI-R and NEO-FFI were updated in 2010 in a manual called the NEO Inventories for the NEO Personality Inventory-3, NEO Five-Factor Model 3, and NEO Personality Inventory-Revised. While the NEO PI-R is still being published, the NEO-PI-3 and NEO-FFI-3 feature updated normative data and new forms.
  4. 4. NEO-PI-R Based on Big Five personality dimensions Rationally and factor analytically derived Newest of the major personality inventories Very popular with researchers Composed of 5 domains, each with 6 facets Easy to administer and score
  5. 5. The Big Five  Neuroticism  Anxiety, Angry Hostility, Depression, Self-Consciousness, Impulsiveness, Vulnerability  Extraversion  Warmth, Gregariousness, Assertiveness, Activity, Excitement-Seeking, Positive Emotions  Openness  Fantasy, Aesthetics, Feelings, Actions, Ideas, Values  Agreeableness  Trust, Straightforwardness, Altruism, Compliance, Modesty, Tender-Mindedness  Conscientiousness  Competence, Order, Dutifulness, Achievement Striving, Self-Discipline, Deliberation
  6. 6. AREA OF APPLICATION The NEO PI-R has applications in occupational assessment for selection and development vocational guidance counseling research
  7. 7. Forms In the most recent publication, there are two forms for the NEO, one for self report (form S) and one for observer rating (form R). Both forms consist of 240 items (descriptions of behavior) answered on a five point scale, ranging from "strongly disagree" to "strongly agree". Finally, there is a 60-item assessment of domains only called the "NEO FFI." There are paper and computer versions of all forms available.
  8. 8. Administration  Costa and McCrae report that the assessment should not be evaluated if there are more than 40 items missing.  They also state that despite the fact that the assessment is "balanced" to control for the effects of acquiescence and nay-saying, that if more than 150 responses, or less than 50 responses, are "agree" or "strongly agree," the results should be interpreted with caution.  Scores can be reported to most test takers on "Your NEO Summary," which provides a brief explanation of the assessment, and gives the participants’ domain levels and a strengths-based description of three levels (high, medium, and low) in each domain.  For example, low N reads "Secure, hardy, and generally relaxed even under stressful conditions," whereas high N reads "Sensitive, emotional, and prone to experience feelings that are upsetting." For profile interpretation, facet and domain scores are reported in T Scores and are recorded visually as compared to the appropriate norm group, much like other measures of personality.
  9. 9. DURATION Test form- standard No. of items- 243 Time taken- 35 min
  10. 10. Psychometric properties  The psychometric properties reported below relate to the UK adaptation of the NEO PI-R.  Reliability Item analysis, (Cronbach’s Alpha) and factor analysis were carried out on a sample of 609 respondents in the UK Anglicization study. The UK results show close alignment with those from the US. The domain scales show internal reliabilities which range from .87 to .92. Facet scales show internal reliabilities ranging from .58 to .82. Test retest reliabilities are all above .75  Validity Validity data is extensive; for a full account the reader is referred to the Professional Manual (US edition), and reference lists are available from the publishers.
