BACKGROUND INFO 	
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This script implements the Five Factor Model Rating Form (FFMRF) as described in:

Mullins-Sweatt, S.N, Jamerson, J.E., Samuel, D.B., Olson. D.R., & Thomas A. Widiger, T.A. (2006).
Psychometric Properties of an Abbreviated Instrument of the Five-Factor Model. Assessment, 13, 119-137.

This script is based on a paper and pencil scoring form genereously shared by Dr. Samuel. 
Millisecond Software thanks Dr. Samuel for his assistance with writing this script!

OVERVIEW

The FFMRF contains 6 5-choice Likert questions for each of the 5 personality factors:
neuroticism (N), extraversion (E), openness (O), agreeableness (A), conscientiousness (C).
The 30 questions are spread over 5 surveypages (one page per factor).
