Abstract: The Ten-Item Personality Inventory (TIPI) is a widely used, very brief measure of the Big Five personality dimensions (Gosling, Rentfrow, & Swann, 2003). Recently, Oshio, Abe and Cutrone (2012) developed and validated a Japanese version of the TIPI. The present study focuses on evaluating the content validity of the TIPI-J with respect to the thirty facets of the Japanese version of the Revised NEO Personality Inventory (NEO-PI-R-J). 163 Japanese undergraduates (67 males and 96 females) completed the TIPI-J and the NEO-PI-R-J. The convergent correlations between the TIPI-J and the Big Five dimensions of the NEO-PI-R-J were as follows: r = 0.65 (Extraversion), r = 0.49 (Agreeableness), r = 0.63 (Conscientiousness), r = 0.70 (Neuroticism), and r = 0.46 (Openness). Twenty-eight of thirty facets of the NEO-PI-R-J correlated positively with equivalent scales of the TIPI-J. A joint factor analysis of the five scales of the TIPI-J with the thirty facets of the NEO-PI-R-J showed clear indicators for the five known superordinate dimensions of personality in both scales. Results indicated that the TIPI-J provides an adequate representation of the Big Five dimensions of personality and correlates sufficiently well with the larger scale NEO-PI-R-J.
