The World Association for Personality Psychology (WAPP) is the association for those interested in or working in the areas of personality, individuality, intelligence, and individual differences in a broad sense, including studies with a cultural or cross-cultural content.

The goal of the WAPP is the advancement and development of empirical and theoretical personality psychology worldwide, fostering the exchange of information between persons and between regionally operating organizations in the same field anywhere in the world, and furthering cooperation and linkage between the association and other organizations with similar goals. This journal (IJPP), published under the auspices of the WAPP, plays an important role in realizing this goal. Besides that, the WAPP organizes scientific meetings, especially that of recurring world conferences on personality psychology.
