THE HEXACO PERSONALITY INVENTORY - REVISED

A MEASURE OF THE SIX MAJOR DIMENSIONS OF PERSONALITY

Kibeom Lee, Ph.D., & Michael C. Ashton, Ph.D.

HEXACO-PI-R Materials for Researchers

If you would like to administer the inventory in pencil and paper form, both the 100-item and the 60-item versions of the HEXACO-PI-R are provided here in several languages. Both of these versions are available in self-report and observer report forms.

You can download any of these forms free of charge, but only for the purpose of non-profit academic research. (Please note that we do not allow researchers to collect data through an online survey site or an app accessible by the general public.  Those online survey pages or apps must either be password-protected or not searchable through search engines.)

Please contact the authors if you would like to use the inventory for non-academic purposes.

We recommend the 100-item versions for use in most research studies, but the 60-item version is suitable when time is very short. (In undergraduate student samples, nearly all respondents will complete the 100-item version in 20 minutes, or the 60-item version in 12 minutes. Respondents of other samples may require more time.) The items of the 60-item version are a subset of the items of the 100-item version. However, the items of the 60-item version are not simply the first 60 items of the 100-item version. The item numbers are not the same across the two versions.

Please see the translations page for information about additional translations of the HEXACO-PI-R.

For some language versions that have been translated relatively recently, we provide an Excel file only, which includes translated items alongside with the original English items. Users may construct their own questionnaires using the master Excel file. For some language versions, there could be more than one set of translations, and in such cases, please note that we do not have any preferred versions, and it is up to users which version to use for their research. Please let us know if you come across any problems (e.g., typographical errors) on these files.

There is also a 200-item version of the HEXACO-PI-R that is recommended when longer measures of the facet-level variables (see scoring keys) are required in order to achieve higher internal-consistency reliability. Please contact the authors if this form is required.
