This is the former website (1999-2008) of the Unit for the Study of Personality in Politics at Saint John's University and the College of Saint Benedict in Collegeville and St. Joseph, Minnesota.
Loss of institutional support for software employed in site creation and maintenance has resulted in loss of functionality and corruption of special characters. Consequently, this site has not been maintained since 2008.
Between 2008 and 2016, USPP research reports and analysis were published at Immelman.us.
In July 2016 a USPP successor site was launched at Personality-Politics.org.
