In order to examine personality, you have elected to measure this construct using the Ten Item Personality Measure (TIPI, Gosling, Rentfrow, & Swann, 2003) which has been used in other studies examining personality. Before using this test in your own research, what concerns should you have regarding reliability and validity of the test you want to use?

For your dissertation, what concerns might you have regarding the validity of your selected scale? Don’t just name your concerns, but also tell why they are concerns.
