Personality Assessment and Diagnosis
Personality assessments assess various personality constructs, such as extroversion, neuroticism, openness, hypomania, and obsessiveness, among many others. Personality assessments include informal assessment techniques, structured personality inventories, projective techniques, and self-concept measures. Personality assessment results can provide valuable inroads into case conceptualization, treatment planning, and diagnosis. At the same time, they can run the risk of being detrimental to clients. For instance, one danger of using personality assessment results to diagnose is that the diagnosis or “label” may negatively affect clients and their lives. Therefore, careful thought and consideration should be exercised when using personality assessment results to diagnose clients.
