Costa and McCrae reported that they began by looking for the broad and agreed-upon traits of Neuroticism N and Extraversion E , but cluster analyses led them to a third broad trait, Openness to Experience O. In this version, "NEO" was now considered part of the name of the test and was no longer an acronym. There were also calls for a more detailed view of personality.
Research also began to show that the NEO PI-R had the potential to be used with adolescents and children as young as Alternative items were developed to replace the "problem" items; the revised instrument was administered to new samples  The NEO PI-R and a revised version of the instrument were administered to adolescents, adults, and middle school age children year old.
Both forms consist of items descriptions of behavior answered on a five-point Likert scale. There are paper and computer versions of both forms. The manual reports that administration of the full version should take between 30 and 40 minutes. Costa and McCrae reported that an individual should not be evaluated if more than 40 items are missing. They also state that despite the fact that the assessment is "balanced" to control for the effects of acquiescence and nay-saying, that if more than responses, or fewer than 50 responses, are "agree" or "strongly agree," the results should be interpreted with caution.
Scores can be reported to most test-takers on "Your NEO Summary," which provides a brief explanation of the assessment, and gives the individuals domain levels and a strengths-based description of three levels high, medium, and low in each domain. For example, low N reads "Secure, hardy, and generally relaxed even under stressful conditions," whereas high N reads "Sensitive, emotional, and prone to experience feelings that are upsetting.
The internal consistency of the facet scales ranged from. Internal consistency coefficient from the facets, with each facet scale comprising fewer items than each of the Big Five scales, were necessarily smaller, ranging from.
Sherry et al. The internal consistency coefficients of the domain scores of a translation of the NEO that has been used in the Philippines are satisfactory. The alphas for the domain scores range from. Costa and McCrae pointed out that these findings not only demonstrate good reliability of the domain scores, but also their stability among individuals over the age of Scores measured six years apart varied only marginally more than scores measured a few months apart.
Most cross-sectional and longitudinal studies suggest that neuroticism, extraversion, and openness tend to decline, whereas agreeableness and conscientiousness tend to increase during adulthood. Intuition is correlated with the NEO facet Fantasy at 0. Feeling is correlated with the NEO facet Tender-mindedness at 0. A number of studies evaluated the criterion validity of the NEO.
Neuroticism was related to the "emotional exhaustion" dimension of burnout, and Agreeableness, with the "personal accomplishment" burnout dimension. Ben-Porath and Waller pointed out that the NEO Inventories could be improved with the addition of controls for dishonesty and social desirability.
Juni argued that the existence of the FFM was phenomenological and atheoretical, the model gaining popularity as a result of the influence of the authors McCrae and Costa in the psychological community.
It comprises 60 items and is designed to take 10 to 15 minutes to complete; by contrast, the NEO PI-R takes 45 to 60 minutes to complete. The revised edition is thought to be more suitable for younger individuals. Lewis Goldberg published a question version of the facet scale in A great deal of cross-cultural research has been carried out on the Five-Factor Model of Personality. McCrae and Allik  edited a book consisting of papers bearing on cross-cultural research on the FFM.
Rolland, on the basis of the data from a number of countries, asserted that the neuroticism, openness, and conscientiousness dimensions are cross-culturally valid. Age differences in the five-factors of personality across the adult life span are parallel in samples from Germany, Italy, Portugal, Croatia, and South Korea.
McCrae, Terracciano et al. They suggested that the NEO PI-3 has the potential to be utilized with those who do not speak English as their first language. Brain and genetics[ edit ] The NEO PI-R has been used in research pertaining to both a genotype and personality and b brain and personality.
Such studies, however, have not always been conclusive. For example, one study found some evidence for an association between NEO PI-R facets and polymorphism in the tyrosine hydroxylase gene,  while another study could not confirm the finding.
Individuals with a shorter allele had higher neuroticism scores than individuals with the longer allele. The effect was significant for heterozygotes and even stronger for people homozygous for the shorter allele.
The authors concluded that "if other genes were hypothesized to contribute similar gene dosage effects to anxiety, approximately 10 to 15 genes might be predicted to be involved.
Revised NEO Personality Inventory
An insightful journey into personality IPIP Share Purpose of this inventory The primary purpose of this on line inventory is to educate the public about the five factor model of personality. These broad domains cover normal differences in personality that should be obvious to people who know you well. Secondarily, this inventory estimates your standing on the 5 broad domains and 30 sub domains of personality. The inventory does not reveal hidden, secret information about you nor does it assess serious psychological disorders. The report is designed to be objective, not pleasing or flattering. Measurement error, misunderstandings, carelessness, and mischievous responding can invalidate the report. If knowledgeable acquaintances disagree with the test results, then the results are wrong.

Computer experts have been unable to identify the software or hardware malfunctions that sometimes prevent successful scoring and feedback. Spending minutes answering questions but getting no feedback can leave you angry and frustrated. If you have problems getting results or prefer to invest less time taking the test, you can take the shorter version. Although you are not required to answer all of the items, skipping items will lower your scores. In particular, missing responses may lower the 30 facet scores dramatically. Although people have successfully completed the inventory on phones and tablets, this site is not optimized for smaller screens. It is recommended that you take the inventory with a full-screen device.
