Transcript of Copy of The Neo PI-R

A presentation by: Thomas Pickett and Shannon Sullivan The Neo PI - R What is the Neo PI-R ? Validity Extensive construct validity tests for both Form S and Form R compared the NEO PI-R scales to external criteria including psychological well-being, coping and defenses, needs and motivation, Jungian types, interpersonal traits and creativity and divergent thinking

Strong evidence for construct, convergent and divergent validity

Social desirability was not seen to influence responses

Three validity checks: Acquiescence, Nay-Saying, Random Responding

Three honesty checks are contained at the bottom of each test

Evaluators should be trained to check for random responding

The Multi Trait Multi-Method Matrix (MTMMM) was identified as a validity check by the use of both Form S and Form R

Within each facet, further tests were conducted to establish correlation between the NEO PI-R and other valid tests for measuring facets of personality

Validated against: the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator, Personality Research Form, Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, and the Self Directed Search Internal consistencies for the individual facet scales ranged from .56-.81 in self reports and from .60-.90 in observer ratings.

The 48 item domain scales (comparing Form S with From R) have larger coefficient alphas ranging from .86-.95.

A small test of thirty-one women and men demonstrated a re-test reliability of the facet scales ranging from .66-.92.

A second test conducted on college students (three months between testing), showed re-test reliability of .79-.83.

A six year, longitudinal study of the N, E and O scales showed stability coefficient ranged from .68-.83 in self reports and spousal ratings.

A three year retest was completed on the A and C domains showing stability coefficients ranging from .63-.79. The NEO-PI demonstrated that it clearly measures enduring dispositions.

Short term re-test reliability can be improved N: Neuroticism

N1: Anxiety
N2: Angry, Hostility
N3: Depression
N4: Self-conscientiousness
N5: Impulsiveness
N6: Vulnerability E: Extraversion

E1: Warmth
E2: Gregariousness
E3: Assertiveness
E4: Activity
E5: Excitement-seeking
E6: Positive emotions O: Openness

O1: Fantasy
O2: Aesthetics
O3: Feelings
O4: Action
O5: Ideas
O6: Values A: Agreeableness

A1: Trust
A2: Straightforwardness
A3: Altruism
A4: Modesty
A5: Modesty
A6: Tender-mindedness C: Conscienctiousness

C1: Competence
C2: Order
C3: Dutifulness
C4: Achievement Striving
C5: Self-Discipline
C6: Deliberation Example of N1 question:
I am not a worrier Example of E3 question:
I sometimes fail to assert myself as much as I should. Example of O5 question:
I sometimes lose interest when people talk about abstract matters. Example of A2 question:
I would hate to be thought of as a hypocrite. Example of C5 question:
When a project gets too difficult I decline and start a new one. Insights Not a diagnostic tool

Useful for both clinicians and clients; provides insight into client's personality

Despite thorough research, we located no information on scoring procedures

Used to identify personality types of drug and alcohol abusers

Both test takers found the test very long. Clients may need to take a break so they maintain focus throughout all 240 items

Due diligence on behalf of the counsellor is required to ensure all questions are answered Norms Form S:
•Normative Aging Study: used original Factor 3 NEO model (2000 person sample size; broad representation of adult males)
•Augmented Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging (ABLSA): original Factor 3 NEO model (400 men; 300 women; better educated than population in general)

Form R:
•Peer Sample: review of BLSA (300 men and women)

Facet Scales A & C:
•Employment Sample: (1,800 men and women; developed college aged norms) Reliability Provides a useful framework for understanding structure and systems of Axis II personality disorders.

To give individuals a general idea of their ways of thinking, feeling and interacting with others.

Provide direction for mental health professionals working with clients

To be used in conjunction with counseling.

Does not measure intelligence or ability

Not intended to diagnose problems of mental health, or adjustment. Purpose Two different forms: Forms S (self-report) and Form R (observer-reports)

240 items

5-point scale - Strongly Disagree(0) to Strongly Agree(4)

Facet scales are internally comparable:
All have eight items
Balanced in keying to minimize the effects of acquiescent responding
Facets are evenly distributed across 240 test items

30 to 40 minutes required for completion.

Scores reported on "Your NEO Summary" providing
A brief explanation of the assessment
Domain levels
Strengths-based description of three levels (high, medium, and low) in each domain. Content

Some remain skeptical of client honesty when reporting

Supervisors may be prone to misinterpret the psychological significance of observed behaviour

Employers should not solely use this as a predictor of job performance and hireability

Conscientiousness is the most easily faked while Openness to Experience is the least easily faked

Length of test can skew results

It only describes, rather than explain personality types

Certain constructs of personality are better understood;

Counsellors, employers, and clients may place greater importance on certain facets; i.e. depression vs. happiness
Developed by Paul Costa, PhD and Robert Mc Crae, PhD

First published in 1978, revised in 1991

A personality inventory based on The Five Factor Model of personality developed by Carl Jung.

The five factors, also classified as 'Domains', contained in this model are:

1) Neuroticism
2) Extraversion
3) Openness to Experience
4) Agreeableness
5) Conscientiousness Insights Both test takers found the test very long. Shannon lost focus by question 220; Thomas by 215

Counsellors should double check to ensure all statements are answered

Both evaluators (Shannon and Thomas) questioned the reliability and validity of their test results due to lack of appropriate training in testing procedures and evaluation

Despite thorough research, no information on scoring and interpreting results was found

Counsellors should not take the results at face value, rather it should be a platform for further exploration and discussion Test Critique References Costa, P.T., McCrae, R.R. (1992). NEO PI-R Professional Manual. Odessa, FL: Psychological Assessment Resources
