MPQ Overview


The Multidimensional Personality Questionnaire™ (MPQ™) is a broad-band test of normal personality employing a dimensional approach.

The University of Minnesota Press encourages research on the Multidimensional Personality Questionnaire, and currently supports the MPQ Standard version of 276 items, and the MPQ-BF, a 155- item brief form.  Permission is granted for research use of both versions of the MPQ, as well as for individual scales.

At this time, the Press is neither seeking nor approving requests to create additional scales for the two approved versions of the test, and does not grant permission for the use of selected MPQ items to construct new scales.
