Abstract

In this study validity of The 10-Item Big Five Inventory, a shortscale version of the well-established BFI, was assessed. Theresearch was conducted on 112 participants and their closeones (N = 203). Reliability, convergent, divergent and predictivevalidity was examined. Openness and Agreeableness showedlower reliability. Mean intercorrelation among the scales was .16and provides evidence of divergent validity. Convergent validitywas tested with: (1) correlations with the NEO-PI-R domainscales (Mr = .61); (2) correlations with the peer ratings (Mr = .37).Predictive validity was evaluated and confirmed with correlationbetween domain scales of the BFI-10 and the Paunnonen’sBehavior Report Form. The results indicate that the BFI-10scales can be used in the research settings in which participanttime is truly limited and personality assessment is not the aim ofthe study.
