Review Measure

Essential Measures are only those items that are critical to the collection of the Measure or are necessary for the interpretation of results. Essential Measures are integral to the Measure. Without such information the data collected would be incomplete and/or misleading.
An additional PhenX Measure that the user may find helpful based on the selection of a particular PhenX Measure. Related PhenX Measures can include additional Measures that are needed to calculate a Derived Variable (e.g., Weight and Height are needed to calculate BMI), Measures that are commonly used in presentations and publications to present the value of the chosen Measures (e.g., Height and Weight by Race and Ethnicity), Measures that are conceptually related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Current Educational Attainment is conceptually related to Annual Family Income and Arm Span is conceptually related to Height), Measures that are physiologically and/or biologically related to the chosen Measure (e.g., Stroke and Heart Disease). Related PhenX Measures are suggestions only.
The Collections are an alternative to the research domains for browsing the PhenX Measures. Measures that are related by a specific topic are grouped together.

Measure: Personality Traits   #121100


A questionnaire to assess personality traits.


This measure is used to score an individual for the five factors of personality, which in turn are predictive of personality disorders. Most personality disorders are prevalent in a small percentage of the general population and often co-occur with other mental disorders, including depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and eating disorders. Some personality disorders, such as antisocial personality disorder, borderline personality disorder and schizotypal personality disorder demonstrate a familial pattern with a greater risk among first-order relatives of affected individuals when compared to the general population (APA, 2000).
