The IDR-PET utilizes Immelman and Millon’s research, but is not associated with Immelman or Millon, and is not the equivalent of any scales or instruments developed by these authors.

The Presidential Electability test is a free personality instrument for measuring presidential electability in U.S. elections. It measures the tendencies, traits, and behaviors that predict success in presidential elections. The Presidential Electability test does not address all possible personality variations relevant to presidential electability and does not purport to accommodate respondents who seek to trick the measure or who fall outside the normal spectrum of personality. Contrary to popular belief, the Presidential Electability test is not the only way of measuring presidential prospects, or the only way to measure abnormal personality. Indeed, the output of the Presidential Electability test overlaps considerably with certain features from the narcissistic, sadistic, and anti-social personality styles, as found in the theoretical framework utilized in psychiatric manuals such as the DSM. To test for these styles in the DSM framework, please consult our Personality Style Test.

Although all are designed to measure presidential electability prospects, the IDR-PET© should not be confused with other “Presidential Electability Tests” as authored by alternative research organizations. However, all are professionally-designed personality tests (or inventories) meant for measuring presidential electability based on personality and personality dispositions in the Western world. The IDR-PET© is the property of IDR Labs International. The original research was provided by Associate Professor of Psychology Aubrey Immelman and Professor of Psychology Theodore Millon. The authors of this online personality test are certified in the use of numerous personality tests and have worked professionally with psychometrics and personality testing.
