The item illustrations in the NPQ depict personality-relevant behaviours that are based on Murray's (1938) system of needs, the scales of the Personality Research Form (PRF), and the Five-Factor Model of personality.

The 136-item NPQ takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. The resulting personality scales are as follows:

  • Achievement
  • Affiliation
  • Aggression
  • Autonomy
  • Dominance
  • Endurance
  • Exhibition
  • Thrill-seeking
  • Impulsivity
  • Nurturance
  • Order
  • Play
  • Sentience
  • Social Recognition
  • Succorance and Understanding
  • ...and a validity scale

This nonverbal measure asks respondents to rate the likelhiood that they would engage in the type of behaviour depicted in the item illustration on a 7-point Likert scale. Response options range from extremely likely to extremely unlikely.

These innovative nonverbal measures are suitable for the assessment of normal adult personality in counselling, research and business settings. The NPQ and the Five-Factor Nonverbal Personality Questionnaire (FF-NPQ) are ideal for cross-cultural comparisons and for people who have reading difficulties, language barriers, and problems with attention and concentration.

The normative sample for the NPQ is based on the responses of 1267 individuals (468 men and 704 women) from ten different countries. Norm tables (descriptive statistics and percentiles) are provided in the manual.
