The Five-Factor Personality Inventory as a Measure of the Five-Factor Model

An assessment of the Edwards Personal Preference Schedule from the perspective of the five-factor model.
TLDR
Results show that both ipsative and normative versions of the EPPS could be meaningfully interpreted within the five-factor model, although the ipsatives of the standard EPPS apparently lowered validity coefficients and decreased convergent and discriminant validity. Expand
