This article will explore the predictive value of two of those tools, the 16PF
and the MSI, to various aspects of job success.
Prior to running the Pearson r tests, we ran five one-way analyses of variance (ANOVAs) to determine possible differences between groups on mean scores for the five 16PF
The MMPI and 16PF
were completed as part of the pre-field assessment process; Big Five scores were calculated using 16PF
Different tests measure different numbers of underlying factors: the 16PF
has 16; Eysenck used three.
contains 173 items that comprise 16 primary factors (10-15 items per factor) and three response style indices.

The personality test, known as a 16PF
test, was carried out to assess whether he had the right character for the job.
Studies by Storm and Thalbourne (1998-1999, 2001a) looked for relationships between paranormal ability in the I Ching "setting" and two dimensions not previously tested in any I Ching study: (1) personality (using Raymond Cattell's 16PF
questionnaire--see Cattell, Eber, & Tatsuoka, 1970), and (2) transliminality (the tendency of psychological material to cross into or out of consciousness--see Lange, Thalbourne, Houran, & Storm, 2000).
Psychometric properties of the Danish 16PF
Looking at those 167 subjects, the study used the 16PF
Personality Inventory, the Peritraumatic Dissociative Experiences Questionnaire (PDEQ), and the Impact of Event Scale-Revised (IES-R) to compare those who met PTSD criteria with those who had experienced traumatic events only.
Group scores for all the 16PF
primary and global factor scores were within expected ranges for a normal population of adults, although Factor B (Reasoning) was noticeably higher and Factors E (Dominance), F (Liveliness) and L (Vigilance) were noticeably lower, as was the global factor IN (Independence).
