Two data sources--self-reports and peer ratings--and two instruments--adjective factors and questionnaire scales--were used to assess the five-factor model of personality. As in a previous study of self-reports (McCrae & Costa, 1985b), adjective factors of neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness-antagonism, and conscientiousness-undirectedness were identified in an analysis of 738 peer ratings of 275 adult subjects. Intraclass correlations among raters, ranging from .30… Expand
Self- and Observer Ratings on the NEO-FFI in Couples: Initial Evidence of the Psychometric Properties of an Observer Form
TLDR
There is consensus across analyses that points to a substantial amount of concordance between partners' self- and observer ratings, which provides preliminary evidence of the measurement utility of the NEO-FFI Observer form. Expand
The five-factor model of personality: Is evidence of its cross-measure validity premature?
Abstract The Adjective Check List (ACL; Gough and Heilbrun, The Adjective Check List Manual. Consulting Psychologists Press, Palo Alto, Calif., 1965) was used to study the cross-measure validity ofExpand
Comparing exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis: A study on the 5-factor model of personality
Several authors claim that widespread support exists for a 5-factor model of personality ratings. In the present study, structural equation modeling was used to investigate this issue. The subjectsExpand
The convergent validity between self- and peer-ratings of the Dark Triad personality
Researchers examining the accuracy of observers ratings of others are devoting increased attention to peer-reported personality traits. Thus, the main purpose of this study was to investigateExpand
The Five-Factor Personality Inventory as a Measure of the Five-Factor Model
TLDR
Analysis of orthogonalized FFPI factors showed that three of them— emotional stability, extraversion, and agreeableness—showed a direct correspondence to their NEO-PI-R counterparts, and facet analysis suggested that it might be interpreted as a dominance factor. Expand
Observer-Rated Alexithymia and its Relationship with the Five-Factor-Model of Personality
TLDR
The findings show that on the basis of interviews there is no evidence for a relation of DIF with neuroticism, while associations of alexithymia with low openness to experience and low agreeableness emerged irrespective of assessment approach. Expand
A psychometric evaluation of the new NEO-PIR facet scales for agreeableness and conscientiousness.
TLDR
A psychometric evaluation of the new revision of the NEO-PI (NEO-PIR) now includes facet scales for Agreeableness and Conscientiousness using a sample of working adults and relying on both self-report and observer ratings provides strong support for the reliability and construct validity of these new scales.

An examination of the five-factor model of normal personality variation with reliable component analysis
Abstract Evidence has been presented in recent years which suggests that five personality domains are needed to describe normal personality variations. The domains of the five-factor model (FFM) haveExpand
