TRENTINI, Clarissa Marceli et al. Correlations between the EFN - Factorial Scale of Neuroticism and the IFP - Factorial Inventory of Personality. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.2, pp. 209-217. ISSN 2175-3431 .
The purpose of this study was to investigate the correlations between the factors of the EFN and the IFP scales. The effects of age and sex were also investigated. The participants were 72 persons (36 men and 36 women), aged between 18 and 59 years. The instruments used were the EFN and the IFP. The results indicated that 11 of the 14 factors of IFP considered in this study had significant correlations with at least one of the factors of EFN (ranging between 0.25 and 0.61, positive or negative). These data suggest that although there is a relationship between the dimensions of the IFP and the facets of Neuroticism, these variables do not overlap substantially.
