The item illustrations in the Nonverbal Personality Questionnaire (NPQ) depict personality-relevant behaviours that are based on Murray's (1938) system of needs, the scales of the Personality Research Form (PRF), and the Five-Factor Model of personality.
This nonverbal measure asks respondents to rate the likelihood that they would engage in the type of behaviour depicted in the item illustration on a 7-point Likert scale. Response options range from extremely likely to extremely unlikely.
The 136-item NPQ takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. The resulting personality scales are as follows: Achievement, Affiliation, Aggression, Autonomy, Dominance, Endurance, Exhibition, Thrill-seeking, Impulsivity, Nurturance, Order, Play, Sentience, Social Recognition, Succorance, and Understanding, and a validity scale.
Several studies have evaluated these nonverbal assessments in North American, European, Middle Eastern, and Asian countries and have demonstrated strong support for the reliability, validity, and general applicability of the assessment. The following are some sources of support for the psychometric properties of the NPQ.
Materials required for hand scoring include a manual, one picture booklet, one hand scorable answer sheet and one profile sheet per respondent.
