The Cloninger Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI) Test


Gday CT, mate just wondering where you were able to locate the The Cloninger Temperament and Character Inventory (TCI) test. I’ve searched online and cannot locate anything available for free or to purchase. I have used the braverman test previously however Im interested to see they differ. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks,


You need to be a psychologist to buy the test. Both my parents are psychologists. Anyway I am in the process of creating my own test since both the TCI and Braverman are incomplete (TCI doesnt measure GABA and acetylcholine, Braverman doesn’t assess norepinephrine, which means that type 1 and type 2 will be rolled in a bunch, not to mention that the Braverman give the wrong diagnostic for 2 neurotransmitters).


CT you’re a legend. Thanks for the information. That’s a great idea! Is it a tool you intend to sell? if yes I’d be keen to purchase as the detail in the article fits me perfectly.


I am highly looking forward to having a copy of your test. I can’t find a bootleg of the TCI anywhere. I think I’m going to have to have a questionnaire to be honest enough with myself to get an accurate result.
