Five Factor Obsessive- Compulsive Inventory (FFOCI)

Samuel, Riddell, Lynam, Miller, & Widiger (2012)

1) Perfectionism

2) Fastidiousness

3) Punctiliousness

4) Workaholism

5) Doggedness

6) Ruminative Deliberation

7) Detached Coldness

8) Risk Aversion

9) Constricted

10) Inflexibility

11) Dogmatism

12) Excessive Worry

The 12 scales demonstrated convergent correlations with established measures of OCPD and the FFM—Samuel, Riddell, Lynam, Miller, & Widger, 2012.

The 12 scales obtained strong discriminant validity with respect to facets from other five factor model domains and OCPD for predicting a composite measure of obsessive-compulsive symptomatology—Samuel, Riddell, Lynam, Miller, & Widger, 2012.


Dependent Personality Questionnaire (DPQ)

Tyrer, Morgan, & Cicchetti (2004).


The DPQ was also a good predictor of the diagnosis of dependent personality disorder, with sensitivity, specificity, predicted positive, and predicted negative accuracies of 87%. —Tyrer, Morgan, & Cicchetti (2004).

Dependent Personality Inventory (DPI)

Huber (2005)


1) Difficulty making everyday decisions.

2) Needs others to assume responsibility for most major areas of life.

3) Has difficulty expressing disagreement with others because of fear of loss or support from others.

4) Has difficulty initiating projects or doing things on own because of lack of self-confidence in judgment or abilities rather than a lack of motivation or energy.

5) Goes to excessive lengths to obtain nurturance and support from others to the point of volunteering to do

things that are unpleasant.

6) Feels uncomfortable

or helpless alone because of exaggerated fears of being unable to care for self.

7) Urgently seeks another relationship as a source of care and support when a close relationship ends.

8) Is unrealistically preoccupied with fears of being left to take care of self.

The internal consistency of the revised Dependent Personality Inventory (DPI-R) to .90, making the test highly reliable. —Huber (2005).

Construct validity is satisfactory for the DPI as our results support the findings of previous studies that suggest two distinct constructs form dependent personality disorder —Gude, Hoffart, Hedley & Ro, 2004.
