NEO-Five Factor Inventory
From PsychWiki - A Collaborative Psychology Wiki
"The Five-Factor model of personality has become one of the dominant theoretical perspectives in personality psychology (Goldberg, 1993). The most commonly used measures of the Five-Factor Model are the two versions of the NEO: the 240-item NEO Personality Inventory-Revised (NEO PI-R) and the 60-item NEO-Five Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI, Costa & McCrae, 1992)." "Some have contended that the lack of validity scales made the NEO vulnerable to undetected faking, an important concern in assessment."
