I studied Psychology some years ago, and well, I ended up as a programmer. Now, I'm working on a personal side project to build an API to serve correction for different psychology tests.

Since I moved out of the field for so many years, I'm having a hard time trying to look for some quantitative instruments to evaluate different aspects of the human psychology: personality, resilience, control locus etc...

All the test must be reliable (they are precise and achieve to measure what they want to, backed up by studies) and up-to-date and frequently use among professionals.

Thanks in advance.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to psych.SE. This question may be too broad for this forum. Maybe if there is a reasonable way to set objective criteria for "reliable", "up to date", and "frequently used", then the question can be acceptable here, but as-is, it is too open to interpretation, and would require an answer that is far too long. $\endgroup$

The International Personality Item Pool would be a great place to start.
