Abstract

In this chapter the 16PF questionnaire is described and detail is given on the current version of the questionnaire, the 16PF fifth edition (16PF5). In considering the history and the development of the 16PF in South Africa, earlier versions are mentioned to contextualise the development of the 16PF5). Psychometric properties of the latter are also presented. A detailed discussion follows on the cross-cultural research with the 16PF South African 1992 version (SA92) that formed the basis for continued work with the 16PF5. The chapter concludes with discussion of the 16PF in practice, and consideration of the future of the 16PF internationally and in South Africa.
