Big Five Personality Scale

For a short, 30-item personality measure, see this 538 article:

Big Five Inventory-2

For a longer, 60-item version with more detailed results go to this site:

For scale development:

  • Soto, Christopher J., and Oliver P. John. "Short and extra-short forms of the Big Five Inventory–2: The BFI-2-S and BFI-2-XS." Journal of Research in Personality, 68 (2017): 69-81.


Attachment Scale

For a well-researched attachment scale, I would recommend this measure: The Experiences in Close Relationships Scale
