NEO Personality Inventory (NEO PI-R)

Benchmark personality against an industry-standard questionnaire

The NEO PI-R™ is routinely used in senior level management assessment and selection.

The NEO Personality Inventory (NEO PI-R™) is the standard against which many other personality questionnaires are judged.

It provides a particularly rich understanding of the personality traits that underpin day-to-day behaviour. As with the 15FQ+™, also offered by Team Focus, it is based on the Five Factor Model of personality: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism (Anxiety). Each of these five factors is broken down into six facets. For example, for Extraversion the facets are:

  • Warmth – Reserve;
  • Gregarious – Self-Contained;
  • Assertive – Accommodating;
  • Active – Leisurely;
  • Excitement-Seeking – Cautious;
  • Positive Emotions – Low Exuberance.

Team Focus provides professional training in the use of the NEO PI-R™ and access to the Psychological Assessment Resources Inc (PAR) administration and report generation system.

Training needed: BPS Test User Personality and/or NEO PI-R™ course.
