Take the HEXACO-PI-R

On this website you can complete the HEXACO Personality Inventory-Revised (HEXACO-PI-R).

If you complete the inventory, you will indicate your agreement or disagreement with various statements of the kind, "I like to watch television" or "I often go for walks".

It usually takes about 15 minutes to complete the inventory itself (100 questions) plus some additional research questions and some (optional) demographic questions (e.g., age, sex, geographical region, education, etc.).

The results computed from your responses will be provided after you have finished. (In case of a technical malfunction, results might not appear, but this is very rare.)

Your responses will be combined with those of many other respondents and used for research on how personality characteristics are related to each other, to other psychological characteristics, and to various demographic variables. This research will be published in scientific journals and other sources.

Your participation is completely voluntary, anonymous, and confidential.

  1. Voluntary: Until all of your responses have been submitted, you can withdraw from the study at any time and for any reason. If you choose to withdraw, your responses before the point of withdrawal will not be used.
  2. Anonymous: You will not be asked to provide your name or any identifying information. No personal identifying data will be recorded in the database.
  3. Confidential: The collected data will be stored in a password-protected hard-drive and only academic researchers and their technical staff will have access to it.

Please be aware that the results computed from your responses may not match your perceptions and that this may be disappointing. (Note that the researchers cannot discuss your results with you.)

No other risk, harm, or discomfort is anticipated in completing the HEXACO-PI-R.
