Abstract

Current personality measures rely heavily on self-report, which have the limitation of being subject to reporting biases, such as social desirability. This study examines the interrater reliability and validity of the Schedule for Personality Assessment from Notes and Documents (SPAN-DOC)—a document-based assessment of adaptive and maladaptive personality traits—in relation to self-report, using information in clinic patient files to assess personality. Particular attention is paid to the domain of Disinhibition and related traits (e.g., Impulsivity), because of differences between self- and other-report in this domain. Study findings may help to improve the validity of personality assessment in clinical settings.
