Abstract/Summary The contribution of premorbid personality to behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) is of increasing interest. Assessment of personality in this population is complex, necessitating the use of informant reports. In this study 60dyads (N = 120) of older adults completed both the BIS/BAS and NEO-FFI in relation to "self" and "partner". Analyses revealed a robustness for both measures, with significant levels of agreement on two of the BIS/BAS scales (BIS and BAS Drive) and each of the NEO-FFI scales except Extraversion.
