The psychologist Robert G. Bernreuter (1901-1995) developed this personality inventory as a graduate student at Stanford University, where he obtained his PhD. in 1931 under the direction of Lewis Terman. From Stanford, Bernreuter went to teach at Pennsylvania State University, where he would stay until his retirement in 1966.
This 1935 version of the test includes a series of 125 “yes” or “no” questions. It seeks to measure several personality traits. A score sheet is included.
