Warnings about this 120-Item Version of the IPIP-NEO
Thus far, no program failures for the 120-item version of the IPIP-NEO
have been reported for persons who have answered all of the items. However, recently a number of individuals have reported that the program tells them they have not checked the two acknowledgement boxes on this page, even when they have. For some reason, this may occur with older Web browsers, so if this happens to you, you might consider trying again with a more recent version of your Web browser or with a different Web browser.
- Although you are not required to answer all of the items, skipping items will lower your scores. In particular, missing responses will lower the 30 facet scores dramatically.
- Although people have successfully completed the inventory on phones and tablets, this site is not optimized for smaller screens. It is recommended that you take the inventory with a full-screen device.
