Sixteen Personality Factor (16PF)
The Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF) contains 185 items for personality assessment. The 16 personality factor scales reflect - a person’s characteristic style of thinking, perceiving, and acting over the relatively long period of time and in a wide range of different situations. These personality traits are manifested in a set of attitudes, preferences, social and emotional reactions, and habits. Each trait has its own history, and is derived from a complicated interaction between inherited disposition and learning from experiences. Some traits primarily involve internal regulation of impulses and service defensive or adaptive purposes. Others are maintained by habit or are functionally autonomous. Still others seem to be stylistic responses to the pressure of inner drives. In all, they have a pervasive effect on practically every facet of a person’s overall functioning and way of being in this world.
