What is meant by the Lie Scale?

What do you think? Strengths? Weaknesses?
Eysenck developed two types of personality scales:

The first was Eysenck’s Personality Inventory (1964) (EPI). measures extroversion and neuroticism.

The second was Eysenck’s Personality Questionnaire (1975) (EPQ) - added a third dimension - Psychoticism.
Personality scales
Eysenck's Type Theory
- His original research used a limited sample of people to test his ideas.

+ Later research however was carried out on 1000s of people and have supported Eysenck’s ideas

- He only described a limited number of personality types.

- Questionnaires can present researchers with a number of problems. The mood of people when they are answering them can affect their answers.

- People may not be 100% truthful in their answers in self-reports when answering questionnaires.

INTROVERTS
NEUROTICS
EXTROVERTS
Extroversion: a personality trait that is
characterised by more sociable and
impulsive behaviours than those shown
by intrvoerts.
Introversion: a personality trait that is
characterised by less sociable and more
cautious behaviours than those shown
by extroverts.
Neuroticism: a personality trait that is characterised by anxious, depressed, obsessive and moody behaviour.
Psychoticism - a personality that is characterised by
aggressive, egocentric and cold behaviour.
Eysenck was a firm believer
in personality being genetic
(upto two thirds of it could be).

He also believed personality types
were physiological and were
caused by the way the brain processes and handles information.
Therefore; do introverts or extroverts have
higher levels of brain activity? Explain your answer?


+ Later research was carried out on 1000s of people and it supports Eysenck’s ideas.

- He only described a limited number of personality types.

- Questionnaires can present researchers with a number of problems. The mood of people when they are answering them can affect their answers.

- People may not be 100% truthful in their
answers in self-reports when answering
questionnaires.
