The NEO Personality Inventory–Revised (NEO PI-R) provides a systematic assessment of emotional, interpersonal, experiential, attitudinal, and motivational styles - a detailed personality description that can be a valuable resource for a variety of professionals. The inventory is a concise measure of the five major domains of personality and the six facets that define each domain:
- Neuroticism - Anxiety, Hostility, Depression, Self-Consciousness, Impulsiveness, Vulnerability
- Extroversion - Warmth, Gregariousness, Assertiveness, Activity, Excitement-Seeking, Positive Emotions
- Openness to Experience - Fantasy, Aesthetics, Feelings, Actions, Ideas, Values
- Agreeableness - Trust, Modesty, Compliance, Altruism, Straightforwardness, Tender-Mindedness
- Conscientiousness - Competence, Self-Discipline, Achievement-Striving, Dutifulness, Order, Deliberation
Taken together, the five domain scales and 30 facet scales of the NEO PI-R, including the scales for the Agreeableness and the Conscientiousness domains, facilitate a comprehensive and detailed assessment of normal adult personality. Although the manual has been updated with the introduction of the NEO-PI-3, NEO PI-R norms and forms have not changed.
