The Eysenck Personality Profiler (EPP) is widely used in research and consultancy. In business, it is used as a selection and appraisal tool. It also has clinical applications.

The Eysenck Personality Profiler (EPP) measures 21 traits of personality that are consistent with the three major dimensions of personality as defined by Professor Hans Eysenck.

The questionnaire was developed by Professor Hans Eysenck and Dr Glenn Wilson.

The 21 traits are:

    • Extraversion: Activity, Sociability, Expressiveness, Assertiveness, Ambition, Dogmatism and Aggressivenes
    • Neuroticism: Inferiority, Unhappiness, Anxiety, Dependence, Hypochondria, Guilt and Obsessiveness
    • Psychoticism: Risk-taking, Impulsivity, Irresponsibility, Manipulativeness, Sensation-seeking, Tough-mindedness and Practicality
    • A Lie scale is also included
