The IDR-EPT utilizes Buss’ research, but is not associated with Buss, and is not the equivalent of any of Buss’ papers.

The Evolutionary Psychology test is an index and instrument for measuring an individual’s attitude toward the discipline and use of evolutionary psychology in the social and natural sciences. The Evolutionary Psychology test does not address all possible theoretical or meta-theoretical orientations and does not purport to accommodate respondents who fall outside the normal modes of conceptualizing the field of psychology. Contrary to popular belief, the Evolutionary Psychology test does endorse the field of evolutionary psychology as such and does not contend that evolutionary psychology is the only way to approach the field of psychology. Indeed, the output of the Evolutionary Psychology test leaves such questions to the user themselves and does not purport to propagate or lecture. To test for other conceptualizations of psychology, see for example of Jungian Typology test.
Although all are designed to measure conceptualizations of psychology, the IDR-EPT© should not be confused with other philosophy of science tests as authored by alternative research organizations. However, all are professionally-designed personality tests (or inventories) meant for measuring theoretical inclinations and attitudes in relation to scientific conceptualizations in the Western world.
