Eysenck Personality Inventory Questionnaire

The Eysenck Personality Inventory Questionnaire is used by psychologists to gauge the personality traits of an individual. The questionnaire was designed by Mr. and Mrs. Hans J. Eysenck based on the theory that an individual’s personality is inherited. This questionnaire mainly gauges a person’s temperament aspects that are inborn. This is done for purposes of proving that nature plays a significant role in determining a person’s character and personality. Eysenck did not deny that nurture also played a role in shaping personalities; rather, he just chose to concentrate on biological-based temperaments, which include extroversion versus introversion and neurotics versus stability. Below is an example of the questionnaire
