The purpose of this study was to assess the psychometric properties of the Jackson Personality Inventory—Revised (JPI-R; Jackson, 1994) in a French-Canadian sample. The JPI-R is a self-report measure of 15 general personality traits of adults that form a five—factor structure. Participants were adults (N = 3,856) who completed the French version of the JPI-R in personnel selection contexts. Confirmatory factor analyses showed dimensionality problems in some JPI-R trait scales. An exploratory structural equation modelling replicated the five-factor structure, although some loadings differed from the original version. Cronbach’s alpha, ordinal alpha and omega coefficients showed that trait scales and factors’ reliability was good in most cases. Measurement invariance analyses suggested the invariance of factor structure and factor loadings in women and men. Cohen’s effect sizes d’s showed that gender differences in scale and factor scores varied from near-zero (d = 0.01) to near medium (d = 0.42). In conclusion, results showed that psychometric properties of the French version of the JPI-R are generally sound, and are globally equivalent to those of the original version.
