Five & Ten Item Personality Inventory

The Ten Item Personality Inventory (TIPI) and the Five Item Personality Inventory (FIPI) are other short personality tests. They were both designed to assess the traits defined by the Five Factor Theory of Personality. The traits and their characteristics are:

  • Openness – originality, curiosity and ingenuity.
  • Conscientiousness – orderliness, responsibility, and dependability.
  • Extraversion – talkativeness, assertiveness, and energy.
  • Agreeableness – good-naturedness, cooperativeness, and trust.
  • Neuroticism – upsetability and the polar opposite of emotional stability.

The Ten Item Personality Inventory consists of 10 items that state "I see myself as…" You then have to rate each statement on a 7-point scale from Disagree Strongly to Agree Strongly.

Below are the questions found on the TIPI:

I see myself as...
1. Extraverted, enthusiastic.
2. Critical, quarrelsome.
3. Dependable, self-disciplined.
4. Anxious, easily upset.
5. Open to new experiences, complex.
6. Reserved, quiet.
7. Sympathetic, warm.
8. Disorganized, careless.
9. Calm, emotionally stable.
10. Conventional, uncreative.

The Five Item Personality Inventory is the same as the TIPI, but with 5 items. Since it is so short, it is recommended to take the TIPI instead.
