The full list of personality items includes about 6,000 items as of July 15, 2017, not counting those that relate to cognition/cognitive ability (from the International Cognitive Ability Resource). A large proportion of these (about 2,500) are from the International Personality Item Pool. Another big chunk (several hundred) come from various other item sets written by Lew Goldberg and colleagues, outside the scope of the IPIP. The remaining 2,500 items or so are compiled from a wide variety of (public-domain) sources and pertain to an array of constructs including vocational interests, avocational interests, personality disorders, psychopathology, patient-reported outcomes in health, and more. Note however that the inclusion of an item on this list does not mean that it can or should be used without reference to the original author(s). Researchers who use these items are independently responsible for making appropriate and accurate references. If you don't know the appropriate reference, send me an email (but only as a last resort, please).
Right now, we are in the process of administering large groups of items with the 135 items of the SAPA Personality Inventory with the intention of someday having a sufficiently large and stable correlation matrix to evaluate the structure of all these items at once. In the meantime, we have plenty to keep us busy by clarifying the ways that personality is associated with a wide range of life outcomes. If you're interested in playing with some of the data collected to date, start here.
The SAPA Master Item List is currently only available for download as a csv file. Note that 'escape' characters (quotes and apostrophes, etc.) have generally been removed. If you plan to use these items, you should read through them carefully to be sure they look they way you want.
