General Description of Test:This is a new, and much improved version of a very early version of the 16PF. It must not be confused with the present day 15FQ instrument or earlier versions such as the fourth edition Form A or Form B. The 15FQ+ provides 16 primary scores that can then be converted to five second-order scores that have considerable overlap with the Big Five personality factors, plus response style scales: Faking Good, Faking Bad, Central Tendency and Response Inconsistency. In addition, the instrument can generate a number of criterion-referenced scores such as Integrity and Emotional Intelligence. The manual is not clear whether the instrument uses normalised or non-normalised scales.
