Abstract. There is a considerable gap separating personality theory and techniques used to measure personality variables even though theoretical considerations guide the use of projective techniques from the initial selection of the specific method to the final step of interpreting the data derived from by: 3. The following article will guide you with the different methods of Personality Assessment. For a discussion of various measuring techniques we can follow the plan adopted by Dr. Saul Rosenzweig in Andrew’s book – “Methods of Psychology’.”. According to him methods of investigating and assessing personality can be divided into following categories. There are three approaches that can be used to study personality in a cultural context: the cultural-comparative approach, the indigenous approach, and the combined approach, which incorporates both elements of both views. Personality Assessment. Personality tests are techniques designed to measure one’s personality.   Numerous personality theories exist and most of the major ones fall into one of four major perspectives. Each of these perspectives on personality attempts to describe different patterns in personality, including how these patterns form and how people differ on an individual level.

  Extract: The thesis of these volumes is that the study of personality traits has advanced towards 'normal science' in the sense of a Kuhnian paradigm (cf. Eysenck, ; Kuhn, ). In general, two different, but complementary, approaches have been employed in the use of the test: 1) as a device to assess disturbance in the perceptual-motoric aspects of behavior, usually with some objective measure of the severity of this disturbance; and 2) as a projective technique to assess various aspects of personality functioning.

  (4) Projective Test Assessment (continued) All projective tests are based on the projective hypothesis which states that the individuals response to an ambiguous stimulus represents a projection of his or her own inner, often unconscious, feelings and needs. Indirect method of personality assessment: Based on psychoanalytic assumptions. • Trait theories assume there is a set of dimensions of personality on which all people can be placed • Responses from the individual are understood in the context of responses from a large group of people • The uniqueness of individuals is captured by scores on a set of traits - a Profile (e.g., 16PF). Personality in its natural habitat: Manifestations and implicit folk theories of personality in daily life. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 90, – Meyer, G. J., & Kurtz, J. E. (). Advancing personality assessment terminology: Time to retire “objective” and “projective” as personality test descriptors. A section of the book is devoted to the discussion of the theories underlying the concept of projections. The book begins with some historical background of psychology with emphasis on the different psycho analytical tools that were used at the time. This section is followed by categories that classify certain projective techniques.
