The article describes the construction of a short personality questionnaire to measure neuroticism and extraversion. These questionnaire contains six questions to measure each personality dimension, giving a total of 12 items. In order to test the validity of the questionnaire, a sample of 1,600 adults were asked to answer it. Correlation and variance analysis showed that the questionnaire has reasonable reliability. The data also showed that neuroticism and extraversion are uncorrelated. This questionnaire can be used in market research.
