3 Minute Agreeableness Test

Based on the work of Dr. Robert McCrae, Ph.D.

Agreeableness, as a personality trait, is one of the Big Five’s factors. Agreeable people value getting along with others and have an optimistic view of human nature. Disagreeable people are unfriendly, uncooperative, competitive, and suspicious.

The IDRlabs 3 Minute Agreeableness Test (IDR-3MAT) was developed by IDRlabs. The IDR-3MAT is based on the work of Dr. Robert McCrae and Dr. Paul Costa, Jr., who created the Big Five Personality Inventory. Agreeableness is one of the traits of the Big Five. The IDR-3MAT is not associated with any of these researchers in the field of personality psychology or any of their affiliated research institutions.

The IDRlabs 3 Minute Agreeableness Test was informed by the Big 5 Personality Inventory criteria for agreeableness, as published in McCrae, R.R., Costa, P.T. (January 1987). "Validation of the five-factor model of personality across instruments and observers." Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. 52 (1): 81–90. Costa, P.T., McCrae, R.R. (1992). Revised NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-PI-R) and NEO Five-Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI) manual. Odessa, Florida: Psychological Assessment Resources. McCrae, R.R., & Costa, P.T. (2003). Personality in adulthood. The Guilford Press.

The work of Dr. McCrae and Dr. Costa has also informed some of the diagnostic criteria in the form of the widely used psychological instrument, the Big 5 Personality Inventory, for clinical use, especially by qualified mental health professionals. The present test is intended for educational purposes only. IDRlabs and the present IDRlabs 3 Minute Agreeableness Test are independent of the above researchers, organizations, or their affiliated institutions.
