After noting the need for indigenous scale construction efforts in the Philippines, the current article focuses on the development and current status of two multidimensional measures of Filipino personality constructs, plus two projects that are investigating indigenous Filipino personality structure. In a final section, we note apparent convergences between the personality dimensions identified and assessed by these four projects and consider how these dimensions might relate to purported universal dimensions of personality (i.e., the "Big Five" dimensions).Reviews of the status of psychological measurement in the Philippines have highlighted two related problems: the questionable applicability of foreign-made tests and the dearth of locally developed tests (e.g., Bulatao & Guthrie, 1968; Carlota & Lazo, 1987; Church, 1987; Guanzon, 1985; Ramos,1977). Strong misgivings have been expressed about the relevance to Filipino behavior of the theories underlying foreign-made tests, and researchers and scientist-practitioners have been urged to develop indigenous tests. The restiveness of the Philippine academic community over the need for more culturally sensitive theorizing was reflected in the Sikolohiyang Pilipino (FilipinoPsychology) movement that began in the 1970s. Enriquez (1994) described Sikolohiyang Pilipino as rooted in its Malayo-Polynesian and Asian heritage, a psychology based on the experience, ideas,and orientation of the Filipino, with psychology defined on the basis of categories drawn from the Filipino language and culture. Local test development was thus welcomed as a cross-cultural indigenization effort in which culture is treated as source rather than target (Enriquez, 1979).Discussions of indigenous psychological concepts and research methods that have emerged as a result of the Sikolohiyang Pilipino movement can be found in a number of sources (e.g., Aganon &David, 1985; Enriquez, 1992; Pe-Pua, 1982).In a recent effort to document and organize existing work on psychological test development in the Philippines, both published and unpublished, Ortega and Guanzon-Lapena (1997) observed an upsurge in academic interest in the development of indigenous psychological measures. Whereas in the 1950s a mere handful of tests in educational psychology were locally developed, Ortega andGuanzon-Lapena's (1997) current listing includes more than 200 locally developed measures on a wide variety of Filipino characteristics, for example, katalinuhan (intelligence), pagkarelihiyoso(religiousness), kaasalang sekswal (sexual behavior), kakayahang magdala ng tensyon (ability tocope with stress), pagkamabahala (anxiety), kahustuhang emosyonal (emotional maturity),pakikipag-ugnayan (adjustment-maladjustment), Filipino management style, and gender sensitivity,to name a few.This article focuses on the development and current status of two multidimensional measures of Filipino personality constructs--the Panukat ng Pagkataong Pilipino (PPP; Carlota, 1985) and thePanukat ng Ugali at Pagkatao (PUP; Enriquez & Guanzon-Lapenia, 1997)--plus two projects that areinvestigating indigenous Filipino personality structure (Church, Reyes, Katigbak, & Grimm, 1997;Katigbak, Church, & Akamine, 1996). In a final section, we summarize hypothesized convergencesbetween the personality dimensions identified and assessed by the different approaches...
