Abstract

In this study the discriminant validity of a frec-response self-description method for personality assessment is examined. From the self-descriptions of subjects belonging to seven different groups scores are derived on eight personality trait dimensions. Multivariate analyses of variance and subsequent univariate analyses indicate that the groups differ with respect to the trait dimensions for which inter-group differences are theoretically plausible. It is concluded that the frec-response self-description method docs successfully discriminate between subjects on account of their personality structure.
