Swedish Universities Scales of Personality (SSP) is a personality test based on the older Karolinska Scales of Personality (KSP).[1] It is originally in Swedish but has been translated to English. The personality profile is presented in t-score (mean 50 and standard deviation 10). Both the SSP questionnaire and the scoring algorithm is free of charge.

  • Somatic trait anxiety

  • Impulsiveness
  • Adventure Seeking
  • Detachment
  • Social Desirability
  • Embitterment
  • Trait Irritability
  • Mistrust
  • Verbal trait aggression
  • Physical trait aggression
