The Personality Assessment Schedule has been modified for use with young adults living in the community. It has been administered to a population sample of 129 subjects aged 24-26 years. It proved possible to achieve a reliable assessment of personality trait. Further, utilising both clinical and statistical approaches personality types were defined. The dimension reflecting types of personality also proved reliable. Guidelines are provided as to what constitutes deviant scores on the elicited personality dimensions.
