International Personality Item Pool

International Personality Item Pool (IPIP) is the first public domain of personality assessment items. There are over 3,000 items and over 250 scales that have been constructed from these items. IPIP also created its own personality test—IPIP-NEO— which assesses people on the Big Five model of Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism.


IPIP Test Types & Content

The IPIP-NEO has two versions. The original IPIP-NEO inventory contains 300 items, which usually take 30–40 minutes to complete. The short version of the IPIP-NEO measures the same traits as the original IPIP-NEO, but with fewer items. The short IPIP-NEO inventory uses 120 items and takes around 20–30 minutes to complete.

The IPIP-NEO can be used by companies hiring on a large scale. It compares scores between possible candidates in order to find the most suitable person for a particular position. Preparing for the test will maximize your chances of being chosen for your desired job.
