California Psychological Inventory – CPI 260-RO

Horia Dumitru Pitariu, Dragoș Iliescu


CPI-260-Ro is the Romanian version of CPI-260, a personality inventory derived from CPI. After translating and validating the inventory for the Romanian cultural context, its psychometrical properties have been evaluated on a sample of 2546 subjects. Its normative data, reliability and validity justify the use of this inventory on Romanian ground. The US-similar factorial structure leads to the use of a combined system of application, which leaves aside gender differences. A software that adjusts and makes a primary interpretation of data makes CPI-260-Ro reachable for a wide range of users.
