The MBTI can be considered to be subsumed by the Big5/Five-Factor Model. McCrae and Costa examined this back in the late 1980’s. First of all, they showed that the types do not interact in a statistically meaningful way indicating that there isn’t a reason to interpret four type categories (e.g., ESTJ vs INFP). The categories (e.g., extraversion vs ...

To quote my answer to another question: The IPIP website provides measures of the Big 5. The following table from Furnham (1996) summarises some correlations across a few studies between the NEO Big 5 and the MBTI. You can find a listing of some of the multi-construct measures including Big 5 measures on the ipip website. References Furnham, A. (1996)...

Extraversion and IQ typically have zero correlation. In Bates and Rock (2004),we suggested that if the arousal value of the testing environment varies, this might induce a modest correlation with IQ (introverts doing best in silences, ambiverts with some noicse, and extraverts performing best under fairly loud white noise background. More basic measures like ...

We had a discussion of the pros and cons of the HEXACO model in a recent article that draws on arguments and evidence presented by the "heavyweights" of the Big 5 (Anglim, & O'Connor, 2019). Here is the quote of the paragraph that focusses specifically on the critiques: Although the HEXACO model is receiving growing support, the necessity of a ...

Actually, McCrae does give his take on HEXACO in the aforementioned book chapter. I missed it initially because it was tucked in a paragraph that opened with a discussion of a lexical 3-factor model. Ashton and colleagues (Ashton and Lee 2005; Ashton, Lee, Perugini et al. 2004) reported lexical studies in a number of languages in which six replicable ...

Here are some resources that will show you how to score the Big 5 using R. The main function that I like is called scoreItems in the psych package. It handles item reversal, imputation, and multiple scales. It will also give you things like alphas and item total correlations. William Revelle has this tutorial: http://personality-project.org/r/psych/HowTo/...

I quite like Saucier & Srivastava (2015). They provide a very nice overview of the evidence for different trait models. They give you a good overview of how factor analysis and lexical studies relate to the Big 5. You can see my own attempt at providing a primer on the Big 5 and trait measurement at Anglim & O'Connor, 2018. You could look at some of ...

You should consult the BFQ with original copyright in 1993, Organizzazioni Speciali, Florence Italy (most likely with adaptation, editing and new copyright in the country in which you reside). Here you can find the data (for use and application) and the studies on which it is based. For a work that I had to do I followed the bibliography indicated in this ...

In general, females score higher on neuroticism and psychology students are predominantly female. In some young adult norms that I've seen in the NEO-PI-3 test manual, females score about two-thirds of a standard deviation higher on neuroticism. In my experience at the undergraduate level, about 70% to 85% of students are females. For example, in my most ...

According to Jones and Hartley (2013), it's a test seldom mentioned in textbooks, but "used extensively in industry", more precisely in business organizations. Thee same paper also provides cross-correlation with Big Five factors: Since the names in the left column of this table are a bit unusual ("left factors"), they are (in this order) the opposite of ...

All personality models are related in that they are carving up the same variance into different factors, and some of the factors will overlap. Extraversion is probably the most similar trait between the two models, but it's still quite different. As a personality psychologist, I would say yes, this is potentially an overestimation of their convergence. A ...

It's very common in research to only measure a subset of the Big Five. When I recently reviewed the literature on the Big Five and well-being, there were a huge number of papers that only used a subset of the Big Five. And I'd say that the most common variables to be measured in isolation were neuroticism followed by extraversion. More generally, if I were ...

Yes. One example is that people high in Openness to New Experiences are interested in aesthetic experiences including museums and being in nature, and novel experiences as you'd expect from the name. https://psycnet.apa.org/record/1997-08808-031 Treatment is a bit misleading here to mean 'study', because in psychology it usually means 'intervention'.

There are a few studies that have correlated Big 5 with conflict styles. There are various terminology and measures but many use a similar set of five styles to the TKI. Antonioni (1998) is highly cited. Here are the correlations. In short: The five conflict styles are correlated in ways that partially reflect the underlying two-dimensions of interested ...

The IPIP scales are in the public domain: https://ipip.ori.org/ They are intended to have no restrictions on use. https://ipip.ori.org/newPermission.htm Because the IPIP has been placed in the public domain, permission has already been automatically granted for any person to use IPIP items, scales, and inventories for any purpose, commercial or non-...

Personality testing of (potential) employees is big business, according to the BBC: A 2014 survey of global HR professionals by CEB, one of the largest providers of online talent tests, indicated that 62% of respondents used some sort of personality test pre-hire. Thirty percent indicated that personality assessments would be used to identify high ...
