The PersonalaMe Vision

PersonalaMe is a confidential psychological science-based platform with three goals:

 

  1. To help you get out of your own way
    Since the time of ancient Greek philosophers like Aristotle, human behaviour has been described as what we repeatedly do. Over the last 100 years, psychologists have studied why we repeat these behaviours and found one of the most reliable explanations is personality. Understanding your personality may support your endeavours regarding familial, social, and occupational areas of life.
  2. To demystify personality presentations for health professionals
    Sometimes, health professionals would like to know more about your personality to better understand you and tailor interventions to your needs. If you like, results can be emailed to a chosen health professional.
  3. To build research data for the Personality Inventory for the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (PID-5)
    The PID-5 is a scientific tool that measures normal and problematic aspects of personality. We offer a free evaluation for users and collect data that can be used for scientific research. Thus, your data will “echo in eternity” sounds dramatic, but basically, it’s true; your results in the data pool are de-identified and may go on to help countless others. Our promise to you is confidentiality and respect for your valuable contribution to the science of psychology.
The Personalame Vision

PersonalaMe is not an alternative to therapy or a form of crisis support.

The psychological tests on the Personalame website are intended for educational purposes, not self-diagnosis. Importantly, psychological problems are often underpinned by biological, psychological, and social considerations. Therefore, even if you have some problematic personality characteristics, don’t worry. You’re not the only one and your personality may only be one piece of the puzzle to support your psychological wellbeing.

An Example of Your PersonalaMe Data

Your results will be displayed in two graphs. First, a line graph consisting of 25 individual personality facets; Second, a web graph that combines several facets into personality domains.

Line Graph

Understanding Your Results

A personality score can be interpreted in several ways. One helpful method is to compare your score to a sample average from the general population. For example, the individual facet graph seen above compares your results (in orange) to a normative data sample (in green). The sample scores (in green) are from 600 individuals in the general community without any mental health concerns (Bach et al., 2017). The green lines indicate one standard deviation above and below the sample average facet scores.

Web-Graph

Understanding Your Results

The above graph represents your trait level analysis of five broad domains. These five domains shown above are scored using combinations of your facets. For example, the trait domain Negative Affect is comprised of scores from the individual facets of Emotional Lability, Anxiousness, and Separation Insecurity. In comparison, Antagonism’s trait domain is defined by the facets of Manipulativeness, Deceitfulness, and Grandiosity. Psychoticism by the facets of Unusual Beliefs & Experiences, Eccentricity, and Perceptual Dysregulation. Detachment by the facets of Withdrawal, Anhedonia, and Intimacy Avoidance and Disinhibition by Irresponsibility, Impulsivity, and Distractibility.
