Assessment of Normality and Human Strengths
Broad Band Tests of Normal Personality
A broad band test is one that measures the full range of
functioning, as opposed to limited aspects
oBECK-> depression
oMore questions -> test/measures more things
Aspects of personality
Psychopathology
oBBT -> helpful in everyday testing
More efficient than an interview
Patient might be bored, dishonest, inattentive
Questionnaire (not 100% accuracy)
How best to conceptualize the multifaceted notion of personality
oContent validity -> does it measure N? or aspects of N?
(Construct of validity)
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
A forced-choice, self-report inventory that attempts to classify
persons according to an adaptation of Carl Jung’s theory of
personality types -> online, career, interview, job/research
Most widely used individual test in history – taken by app. 2
million ppl/yr
oTraditional (self-report)
Questionnaire written response (internal diff.)
Four Theoretically independent polarities
1. Extraversion-Introversion
2. Sensing-Intuition -> “touchy”, “feely”
3. Thinking-Feeling
4. Judging-Perceiving
16 different Personality Types
oGain insight about how they see the world
California Psychological Inventory
T/F test designed to measure the dimensions of normal
personality (MMPI) – developed using criterion-keying (or
empirical-keying) method
CPI – 260
o20 folk measures (e.g., Dominance, Sociability, Self-Control)

A folk concept is a construct about personality
that all people everywhere use to comprehend
behaviour
o20 work-related scales (e.g., Managerial Potential,
Leadership)
o3 Broad vectors
1. Toward People vs. Toward One’s Inner Life
2. Rule-Favoring vs. Rule Questioning
3. Self-Realization/Psychological Competence/Ego
Integration
LIFESTYLES
oImplementers -> leadership
oSupporters -> workers, support LEADERSHIP
oInnovators -> creators, nee the freedom to create
oVisualizers -> look to future, see what should be happening
NEO Personality Inventory – Revised
- Latest is “NEO-PI-3” -> not very good validity scale
- Based upon the FFM of personality
- Very high internal consistency (high reliability -> corr. w/other
items on the scale [Cronbach’s Alpha] and the test) and validity
- Used in both research and clinical psychopathology
oCDNs overall, are higher in A than US
oUSA->…
oCan’t tie OCEAN to gene, neurobiological aspect
Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF)
- Forced-choice test of personality
- Includes a measure of intelligence -> O corr. w/intellect
- Normed in 1970
- Predicated on Cattell’s factor analytic conception of personality
- *16 Basic scales (“source traits”) + 4 second-order indices
(“surface traits”)
- Reliability and validity research is encouraging
oConstruct validity -> never a “right” way to test intelligence
Example of a 16-PF Style Item
I make decisions based on:
a) Feelings
b) Feelings and Reason Equally
c) Reason
Assessment of Moral Judgment
- Stages of Moral Judgment for example:
