Question Description

In this assignment, you will compare projective and objective methods of personality assessment. Research a minimum of three peer-reviewed articles in the Ashford University Library that were published within the last 15 years on these techniques. In your paper, you will provide an evaluation of these techniques organized according to the outline provided below. Use information from your researched peer-reviewed articles and required sources to support your work in each section.

Section 1: Objective Personality Assesment

  • Define the term objective in objective methods of personality assessment.
  • Summarize the features of objective methods of personality assessment, and provide at least three examples of these types of measures.
  • Explain the assumptions on which objective methods are based, and provide an analysis of empirical research testing the validity of the assumptions you identified.
  • Appraise the research exploring the technical adequacy (i.e., reliability and validity) of objective tests.
  • Describe the impact of social and culture variability on the administration and interpretation of objective tests.

Section 2: Projective Personality Assesment

  • Define the term projective in projective methods of personality assessment.
  • Summarize the features of projective methods of personality assessment, and provide at least three examples of these types of measures.
  • Explain the assumptions on which projective methods are based, and provide an analysis of empirical research testing the validity of the assumptions you identified.
  • Appraise the research exploring the technical adequacy (i.e., reliability and validity) of projective tests.
  • Describe the impact of social and culture variability on the administration and interpretation of projective tests.

Section 3: Synthesis, Conclusions, and Recommendations

  • Write a brief one-paragraph scenario for a fictitious client. Include the following information: presenting concerns (reason for referral), age, gender, ethnicity, language(s), and any other significant information (e.g., military status, health issues, marital status, sexual orientation, etc.).
  • Debate the arguments supporting and opposing the use of projective and objective personality assessments with your identified client.
  • Select a minimum of one objective and one projective measure to use with your client. Compare the use of the selected projective and objective personality measures with your identified client.
  • Analyze the advantages and limitations of each assessment measure you selected.
  • Compose recommendations to improve the validity of personality assessment.

The Evaluation of Objective and Projective Measures of Personality

  • Must be four to six double-spaced pages in length (not including title and references pages) and formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
  • Must include a separate title page with the following:
    • Title of paper
    • Student’s name
    • Course name and number
    • Instructor’s name
    • Date submitted
  • Must use at least three peer-reviewed sources published within the last 15 years in addition to the course text.

PERSONALITY ASSESSMENT
Section One
Personality assessment as a proficiency within professional psychology that involves

the scoring, interpretation, and administration of measures in personality styles and traits that
are supported empirically for the purposes of refining clinical diagnoses, inform
psychological interventions and structure (Weiner et al, 2017).
Particularly, the term objective in objective tests represents the method that is adopted
in scoring the responses of a person instead of the specific responses. In the identification of
the objective methods of personality assessment, there are features that single out these
methods. They include:
1. The comprehensiveness-this feature is concerned with the extent to which assess
personality is sought in a manner that is comprehensive. Perhaps, the many
extensively used measures are meant to achieve the assessment of a single core
attribute. On the other hand, several inventories comprise many specific scales in the
comprehensive measurement of a personality.
2. Levels of breadth- Generally, many models put emphasis on broad traits, which can
further be subdivided into several distinct that are however correlated.
In measuring personality assessment, projective tests, implicit tests, and behavioral and
performance measures are some of the measures that are used.
The approach employed by a specialist in assessment of personality is based on the
assumptions that imply much of the variability that can be observed in behavior in different
people a result of differences in the level to which individuals possesses identifiable
underlying personality traits (Spielberger et al, 2013). In the research study, the behavior of
an individual reflects the interactions among extensive factors such as the effects of an
individual's experiences and his/ her bodily state. Therefore, an approach t...
