Big Five personality traits
The Big Five personality traits (the basis for the five factor model) are the five traits psychologists use to describe an individual's personality. While other traits exist, these are thought to define a large part of individuality. Hans Eysenck initiated this concept, but only included two personality traits, extraversion and neuroticism.
- Conscientiousness - self-discipline, efficiency, and orderliness
- Extraversion - assertive, energetic, and personable
- Agreeableness - understanding and cooperativeness
- Neuroticism - anxiety, vulnerability, and sensitivity
- Openness - Creativity, imitativeness, and curiosity
