Abstract:

This survey reports the first phase of a project to develop tests to measure five personality variables. Various techniques are defined and these are appraised on the basis of logical implications and empirical findings. Conclusions favored questionnaires composed of forcedchoice self-report items as best suited to the purpose of the project. A program is outlined for construction of such tests to produce instruments valid for the selected criterion variable and free from appreciable biasing effects. Author
