NEO Five-Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI™) Paul T. Costa, Jr., PhD, Robert R. McCrae, PhD
Purpose: Quick five-factor measure of personality
Age Range: Adult, Elder Adult
Adminitration: Individual or group
Time: 10-15 minutes
This shortened version of the NEO PI-R™ provides a quick, reliable, and accurate measure of the five domains of adult (ages 17 years and older) personality. It is especially useful when time is limited and global information on personality is considered sufficient.
Now, the NEO-FFI offers observer-rating versions of the instrument NEO-FFI Form R (Adult Men), appropriate for rating men and NEO-FFI Form R (Adult Women), appropriate for rating women. A self-report version for college students, the NEO-FFI Form S (College Age), also is available. All NEO-FFI scoring profiles have a new combined gender profile grid for plotting T scores, thereby supplementing the existing male and female grids.
These enhancements to the NEO-FFI, coupled with the self-report information from the NEO-FFI Form S, give you the necessary tools you need to create and carry out comprehensive treatment plans. A brief supplement (Materials Update) is provided that directs the clinician to the appropriate location in the NEO PI-R Professional Manual for psychometric and technical information about the NEO-FFI additions.
The NEO-FFI can help you understand your client's basic emotional, interpersonal, experiential, attitudinal, and motivational styles. It can also help you quickly develop rapport with your client, provide meaningful feedback and insight that will help your client develop a greater self-understanding, enable you to anticipate the course of therapy, and help you select the optimal treatment based on your client's personality.
