The Ph.D.project we work on focuses on using situational description in personality inventories and how such modifications may influence responses of cultural groups. After charting these differences we will investigate the link between vocational interest, personality and prestige. The project is supervised by Marise Born and Reinout de Vries and financially supported by the NOA foundation.

- Testing and how cultural group differences influence test results, specifically for personality and vocational interest tests

- Personality measurement (e.g., HEXACO / MPT-BS), specifically Frame-of-Reference modifications

- Vocational interest measurement (e.g., PGI / RIASEC), specifically the relation with personality and self and other ratings

- (Academic) Performance prediction, specifically for college university students
