Warnings about this 300-Item Version of the IPIP-NEO
When you finish the inventory and your narrative report is displayed, YOU are responsible for saving the report before you leave that Web page, using the instructions at the top of the report. Individual reports are NOT saved by the system, so if you close the report Web page, you will not be able to return to your report.
Best estimates indicate that the 300-item version of the IPIP-NEO produces a report over 99% of the time.
However, network errors, either on your side or with the Penn State network, can prevent the program from proceeding normally.
Spending 30-40 minutes answering 300 questions but getting no feedback can leave you angry and frustrated, so make sure that you have a good network connection before you begin.
Although you are not required to answer all of the items, skipping items will lower your scores. In particular, missing responses may 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 laptop or desktop computer.
