IPIP equivalent to California Psychological Inventory, CPI

Online version of the IPIP equivalent to Gough's CPI. California Psychological Inventory is a self-report inventory created by Harrison Gough in a similar manner to the MMPI. But unlike the MMPI, which focuses on maladjustment or clinical diagnosis, the CPI was created to assess the everyday «folk-concepts» that ordinary people use to describe the behavior of the people around them.

Please note: this is NOT the actual Gough's CPI inventory, but the public domain IPIP Scales, measuring similar constructs. The scores you'll get are not a replacement, they will only correlate with the scores you would actually obtain if you took a real CPI and are probably much less valid.
