The Personality Questionnaire is one of nine Spaceflight Standard Measures conducted on International Space Station (ISS) crewmembers. Spaceflight Standard Measures are a set of core measurements, representative of many of the risks experienced by astronauts before, during, and after spaceflight. The purpose of this project is to populate a repository with data that enables high-level monitoring of countermeasure effectiveness and meaningful interpretation of health and performance outcomes. These standard measures will support future, hypothesis-driven research that enables planetary missions by providing an optimized minimal set of measures captured from all ISS crewmembers until the end of the ISS program. These measures will be available to other studies under data sharing agreements as well as undergo analysis for trends in the astronaut population.
The purpose of the Personality Questionnaire is to help with the interpretation of Behavioral Health and Human Factors data.
The subject will complete a 120-question personality survey/questionnaire on paper or via secure, browser-based survey software.
The session to complete this standard measure will be performed anytime pre-flight for three mission scenarios: short duration (up to 105 days flight days), standard duration (between 105 to 240 flight days), and long duration (greater than 240 days).
The Spaceflight Standard Measures project is not a hypothesis-driven study, but rather a project to create a collection of ISS data made available to future researchers and for trend analysis. As such, there are no specific hypotheses, outcome measures, or statistical analyses associated with the skeleton of the project. The project will capture a "snapshot" of optimized data that can be investigated by researchers in the future
