Basic Five Factor model

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, orderliness and dependable. Conscientiousness is positively correlated to a desire to perform a task well.
  • Extraversion - Assertive, energetic, and personable
  • Agreeableness - Understanding and cooperativeness
  • Neuroticism - Anxiety, vulnerability, and sensitivity
  • Openness - Creativity, imitativeness, and curiosity[1][2]
