Background: Internationally, the NEO Personality Inventory-Revised (NEO-PI-R) is a well established questionnaire for assessment of personality in accordance with the Five Factor Model. The instrument has been translated into many languages including Swedish. Aim: The aim of this study was to make a psychometric evaluation of the Swedish version of NEO-PI-R based on a sample from the general population. Methods: Postal questionnaires were sent to a random sample of 1250 persons (n = 766 responders). Results and conclusions: The test showed satisfactory internal consistency in the broad factors as well as the facets. A factor analysis indicated that the factors were similar but not identical to those obtained in American studies. In sum, The Swedish version of the NEO-PI-R shows satisfactory psychometric properties and the instrument will continue to be a valuable tool in psychological research and in clinical practice.
