The NEO Personality Inventory: Using the Five‐Factor ModeI in Counseling

ROBERT R. McCRAE, Paul Costa

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Personality psychologists have recently concluded that five major dimensions account for most individual differences in personality traits. The NEO Personality Inventory (NEO‐PI) is a concise measure of this Five‐Factor Model and of some of the important traits that define the factors. Characteristics of the test, features for administration and scoring, and studies of reliability, stability, and validity are summarized. The NEO‐PI may be particularly appropriate for use in counseling because it is brief, nonpsychopathological in content, and sensitive to client strengths as well as weaknesses. We suggest several ways in which the counselor can learn how to use the NEO‐PI effectively. 1991 American Counseling Association
