We elucidated a recently proposed individual difference variable, Status-Driven Risk Taking (SDRT), in three different samples of Canadian undergraduate students. In particular, we focused on the


Honesty-humility, the big five, and the five-factor model.
This study investigated the relations of the proposed sixth factor of personality, Honesty-Humility, with the dimensions of the classic English lexical Big Five and the closely related Five-Factor Model (FFM), and found it was substantially correlated with the FFM Agreeableness domain.
