Application

Assesses the three dimensions of Extraversion, Emotionality and Adventurousness according to Eysenck.
The Personality Structure Inventory enables the likelihood of future behavioral tendencies to be predicted. The different levels of the various dimensions are quoted and scored. This provides an economic means of assessing suitability in terms of particular requirements profiles. The inventory is used in personnel psychology, traffic psychology, sports psychology and clinical neuropsychology.

Administration

The questions are answered using a three-point answer scale (“yes”, “no”, “don’t know”). The previous answer can be corrected once.

Test forms

S1: Standard form
S2: Short form

Scoring

The following main variables are scored:

  • Extraversion: Consisting of the subscales Activity, Sociability, Expressiveness, Assertiveness, Ambition, Dogmatism and Aggression.
  • Emotionality: Consisting of the subscales Inferiority, Unhappiness, Anxiety, Dependence, Hypochondria, Guilt and Obsessiveness.
  • Adventurousness: Consisting of the subscales Risk-taking, Impulsiveness, Irresponsibility, Manipulativeness, Sensation-seeking, Tough-mindedness and Practicality.

Depending on the test form, the main variables involve either seven (S1) or three (S2) subscales. The subsidiary variable Dissimulation can be regarded as an aid to interpretation, since it measures the respondent’s honesty. If a high score is obtained, the user is warned that the questionnaire is unreliable in this particular case.
