Disease relevance of Personality Tests

  • Three projective personality tests were used to assess attitude to aggression (The Identification Test), anxiety and defenses (The Meta-Contrast Technique) and creative functioning (The Creative Functioning Test) in 70 patients with breast cancer [1].

Psychiatry related information on Personality Tests

  • This paper reports on two separate studies that compared cocaine free-basers with opiate addicts on objective personality tests (Adjective Checklist and MMPI) [2].

High impact information on Personality Tests

  • Temperament Evaluation of Memphis, Pisa, Paris and San Diego-Autoquestionnaire version (TEMPS-A) and Munich Personality Test (MPT) were administered to assess temperaments, and the NIOSH Generic Job Stress Questionnaire (GJSQ) to assess job stress [3].
  • Considering the role of BDNF and personality traits in the neuropsychiatric diseases, it is of interest to examine the association between BDNF gene polymorphism and personality test scores [4].
  • Comparison of Yatabe-Guilford personality test results in retinitis pigmentosa and glaucoma patients [5].
  • The basic methodology behind PLS modeling is presented and the example demonstrates how a PLS model of personality test data can be used for diagnostic prediction [6].
  • Both an ipsative and a normative version of the DISCUS test was administered to a sample of undergraduate students (N = 103), along with an adjective based personality test that measures the Big-Five personality traits (5PFa) [7].

Chemical compound and disease context of Personality Tests

  • The personality profile was assessed using a standard personality test (French translation of the Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire) [8].

Gene context of Personality Tests

  • The Japanese Edition of the Cornell Medical Index-Health Questionnaire and the Yatabe-Guilford personality test (Y-G Test) was given to 56 young women (mean age 19.2 years) who were identified as having orthostatic dysregulation among a total of 280 healthy young women [9].
  • There were significant correlations between Hand Test personality variables and IQ and different subgroup configurations were noted [10].
  • Results from 241 undergraduates showed that Black examinees perceived the cognitive ability test as less valid than White examinees, whereas no significant Black-White difference in predictive validity perceptions was observed on the personality test [11].
  • In relation to other assessment devices, the MCS has been used to enhance predictive accuracy of several scales, and has predicted defensive reactions to negative personality test feedback [12].
