Psychologists seek to measure personality through a number of methods, the mostcommon of which are objective tests and projective measures.Objective tests, such as self-report measures, rely on an individual’s personal responses and arerelatively free of rater bias.Projective measures are founded in psychoanalytic theories of personality and involve usingambiguous stimuli to reveal inner aspects of an individual’s personality.validity: The extent to which a concept, conclusion, or measurement is well-founded andcorresponds accurately to the real world.projective measure: A personality test that is used to identify underlying personality traits;responses are highly subjective.apperception: The mind’s perception of itself as the subject or actor in its own states, unifyingpast and present experiences; self-consciousness; perception that reflects upon itself.clinical: Of or pertaining to a medical facility.reliability: The overall consistency of a measure; the likelihood that a measure can be repeated.Psychologists seek to measure personality through a number of methods.

Objective TestsAn objective test is a psychological test that measures an individual’s characteristics in a waythat isn’t influenced by the examiner’s own beliefs; in this way, they are said to be independentof rater bias. They usually involve the administration of a bank of questions that are marked andcompared against standardized scoring mechanisms, in much the same way that school examsare administered. Objective tests tend to have more validity than projective tests (describedbelow); however, they are still subject to the willingness and ability of the examinee to be open,honest, and self-reflective enough to accurately represent and report their true personality.Themost common form of objective test in personality psychology is the self-report measure. Self-report measures rely on information provided directly by participants about themselves or theirbeliefs through a question-and-answer format. There are a number of test formats, but eachone requires respondents to provide information about their own personality. They typically usemultiple-choice items or numbered scales, which represent a range from 1 (strongly disagree) to5 (strongly agree).Attitudes: Extraversion-Introversion. This measures whether someone is “outward-turning” andaction-oriented or “inward turning” and thought-oriented.
