The 16PF Questionnaire was first published in , and the most recent edition, released in , is the fifth edition of the original test. The goal of the fifth edition revision was to update and simplify the language and answer format and develop new reliability and validity data. Also, a new standardisation sample of 10, people was developed for the fifth edition to reflect the current U. Census population. The 16PF Fifth Edition contains multiple-choice items, written at a fifth-grade reading level.
The items ask simple questions about daily behaviour, interests, and opinions. The measure tends to sample a broad range of actual behaviour by asking questions about daily, concrete situations, rather than asking the test-taker to simply make a self-assessment of their own personality traits as some tests do.
Administration of the test takes about 35—50 minutes for the paper-and-pencil version and about 30 minutes by computer. The test is un-timed; thus it is generally self-administrable and can be used in either an individual or a group setting.
The 16PF test was designed for adults at least age 16 and older, but there are also parallel tests for various younger age ranges e.

Notwithstanding, his theory has been frequently criticised on the grounds that, although there have been many attempts to replicate his theory, none have entirely succeeded in doing so.
One study found that ten factors failed to relate to items in the present questionnaire. The researchers concluded that the 16 PF Questionnaire does not measure the factors which it purports to measure at a primary level Eysenck and Eysenck, , in Fehriinger, Cattell and his colleagues responded to the criticism by saying that the lack of replicability was due to the fact that the researchers had not used his methodology.
Moreover, Cattell published the results of his own factor analysis of the 16PF instrument, and also failed to verify the primary factors that he himself had hypothesised Eysenck, , in Fehriinger, It is possible that the amount of computation which needed to be done by hand in those days is responsible for skewed data, which made findings unable to be replicated.

The 16PF was developed from the work of Dr. Raymond Cattell and his factor analysis over 45 years ago. Instead of four, there are 16 different scales that measure things like anxiety, liveliness, dominance, sensitivity, perfectionism, openness to change, group-orientation, and more. The factors are further grouped together into global factors: self-control, anxiety, extraversion, independence, and tough-mindedness. You can see sample reports below. The 16PF is often used for personnel selection and development, career planning, and more.
