This free online 50-question Big Five personality test will allow you to obtain your Big Five personality scores as well as to compare yourself with the personalities of 25 U.S. Presidents as calculated by the Ph.D.'s in psychology Steven J. Rubenzer, Ph.D., and Thomas R. Faschingbauer, Ph.D., using data from independent expert raters and the official NEO PI-R™ instrument.
The Big Five system of personality is considered the state of the art in science. Understanding Big Five scores can be used to prevent simplistic thinking and stereotypes. It can also help you see the differences between two people whom you would normally think were alike.
The CT-NEO-IP© is neither the equivalent of the NEO PI-R™ nor of the IPIP-NEO.
The NEO PI-R™ is the property of Psychological Assessment Resources. The IPIP-NEO is compiled by Lewis R. Goldberg, Ph.D. and professor of psychology, but in the public domain. The CT-NEO-IP© is the property of CelebrityTypes International.
The 25 presidents are: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. The Big Five scores of George W. Bush were assessed by Steven J. Rubenzer, Ph.D., and Thomas R. Faschingbauer, Ph.D., without the use of independent expert raters. The Big Five scores of Barack Obama were aggregated from assessments from David G. Winter, Ph.D., Samuel Barondes, M.D., Dan McAdams, Ph.D., and Samuel Gosling, Ph.D. CelebrityTypes International is an independent research venture, which has no affiliation with the researchers mentioned in this notice.
Although both are designed to measure the Big Five traits, the CT-NEO-IP© should not be confused with the IPIP-NEO or the NEO PI-R™, as authored by Paul T. Costa, Jr. and Robert R. McCrae, however, both are personality tests (or inventories) for measuring traits within the Big Five or Five Factor Model (FFM) system of personality. The NEO PI-R™ is the property of Psychological Assessment Resources. The CT-NEO-IP© is the property of CelebrityTypes International.
