The Temperament and Personality (T&P) Questionnaire


The Temperament and Personality (T&P) Questionnaire identifies a number of personality styles that have been held to predispose to depression (and in particular non-melancholic depression) and that correspond with four of the five factors identified in the well known Five-Factor Model (FFM) of normative personality.

Subjects are required to rate each item on the questionnaire according to how they generally feel or behave; not necessarily as they are when depressed. Clinical evidence suggests that all but the most profoundly depressed are able to complete this 109-item questionnaire within 20 minutes.

The T & P Questionnaire is available for use free of charge. It can be completed in a pen-and-paper format and scored using the guide provided in this document. Alternatively, the T & P Questionnaire can be completed online on the Black Dog Institute website (, in which case personality scale scores will be automatically computed and reported along with descriptions of the scales.

Scales of the T & P Questionnaire:

In developing items for the questionnaire, we included personality constructs from literature reviews and/or seemingly over-represented constructs observed in depressed patients in clinical practice. The final version of the T&P questionnaire comprises 10 subscales – 8 of which assess temperament and personality (89 items) and two of which refer to personality function (Cooperativeness: 10 items; Effectiveness: 10 items). The scales assessed by the measure are:

Personality dimensions
Anxious Worrying
Personality functioning dimensions
Personal Reserve

Social Avoidance

Interpersonal Sensitivity
