In the first two subprojects, we explore the relationship between ego development - a measure of psychosocial maturity and complexity - and the HEXACO model - a six-factor model of personality trait structure - and the hypothesis that HEXACO model predicts ego development above and beyond the more standard five-factor model. Furthermore, we explore both the relationships between ego development and levels of personality functioning as suggested in the DSM-V Alternative model of personality disorder (AMPD) and between ego development and higher-level personality functioning (i.e., wisdom-related personality characteristics of self-actualization, self-transcendence, eudaimonic well-being). In the third subproject, we independently investigate the psychometric properties of Norwegian translation of the Developmental Profile Inventory - a measure of psychodynamic personality functioning and development - and the Self and Interpersonal functioning scale - a measure of AMPD levels of personality functioning.
