NovoPsych is excited to introduce new personality scales, providing you with a comprehensive suite of tools for the assessment of a client’s unique traits.
The Big Five Personality Traits (OCEAN)
The Five-Factor model of personality is the most validated conceptualisation of individual difference and can help clinicians identify strengths and weaknesses, and provide useful stimulus for a client’s self-reflection.
A great way to refresh your memory of the Big Five is by taking the assessment yourself. Self-administering assessments help you learn about the scale at the same time as reflecting on aspects of yourself.

Personality Inventory for
DSM-5 – Short Form (PID-5-SF)
The Personality Inventory for DSM-5 – short form (PID-5-SF) is a measure designed to assess dysfunctional personality traits according to the conceptual framework proposed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, Text Revision (DSM-5-TR).
The PID-5-SF presents personality traits in two district methods. An empirically derived framework with five personality domains, and a seven personality domains framework that aligns with DSM-5-TR conceptualisation of personality pathology.
Borderline Symptom List (BSL-23)
The Borderline Symptom List – Short Version (BSL-23) is a 23-item self-rating instrument for specific assessment of borderline personality disorder (BPD) symptomatology in adults (18+). The scale assesses DSM BPD diagnostic criteria (e.g., affective instability, recurrent suicidal behaviour, gestures, or threats, or self-mutilating behaviour, and transient dissociative symptoms).
Individuals with high scores on the BSL-23 are more likely to have BPD and associated challenges with managing emotions, self-image, relationship issues, and general functioning in everyday life.
