The Personality Inventory(Brief Form - DSM-5)

The Personality Inventory for DSM-5—Brief Form (PID-5-BF)—Adult is a 25-item self-rated personality trait assessment scale for adults age 18 and older. It assesses 5 personality trait domains including negative affect, detachment, antagonism, disinhibition and psychoticism, with each trait domain consisting of 5 items.

This assessment is designed to provide a broad indication of your key personality traits and should only be used in conjunction with a wider psychological assessment.

The following items provide a list of things people might say about themselves. There are no right or wrong answers, so please try to answer the questions as accurately and honestly as possible, using the following rating scale:
