Description Objectives. The aim of the study was estimation of basic psychometric properties of the Czech version of the NEO Personality Inventory 3 (NEO-PI-3) for measuring five basic personality dimensions. Subject and settings. The NEO-PI-3 for selfreport were administered to 1,639 participants in age from 20 to 76 years. Hypothesis. It was expected that the Czech version of the NEO-PI-3 will have the same or better psychometric properties then the NEO-PI-R. Statistical analysis. Internal consistency of the NEO-PI-3 domains and facets was estimated using Cronbach alpha coefficient. The structure of the NEO-PI-3 was derived from Principal Component Analysis with Varimax rotation and confirmatory factor analysis. The NEO-PI-3 structure was compared using congruence coefficients with the structure of the NEO-PI-R and with the American normative structure of the NEO-PI-3. Gender and age of participants were correlated with domains and facets of the NEOPI- 3. The correspondence of the short version The NEO-FFI-3 and The NEO-PI-3 was estimated using Pearson’s correlation coefficient. Results. The NEO-PI-3 domains showed excellent internal consistency, ranging from 0.90 to 0.94. Facets’ internal consistency ranged from 0.43 to 0.83, median 0.79. All facets of the NEO-PI-3 reached component loadings higher or equal 0.40 on intended component. Only in five cases, facet had secondary component loading higher than 0.40 on another component. Domain congruency of the NEO Inventories when comparing Czech NEO-PI-R and NEO-PI-3 structures ranged from 0.98 to 0.99; when comparing Czech NEO-PI-3 structure with American normative NEO-PI-3 structure congruence ranged from 0.97 to 0.98. Neuroticism, Extraversion and Openness to Experience decreased with age and Agreeableness and Conscientiousness increased with age. Women described themselves as more neurotic and agreeable in comparison with men. Short version of the NEO-FFI-3 captured 83% of the full NEO-PI-3 variance. Study limitation. The study did not include test of convergent validity of the instrument, testretest reliability and self-other agreement.
