What is personality?

Modern scientific research uses five broad domains to describe human personality - called the Big Five factors or the Five Factor Model (FFM). During studies, the Big Five personality traits show consistency in interviews, self-descriptions and observations. Moreover, this five-factor structure seems to be found across a wide range of participants of different ages and of different cultures.

Beneath each global factor, a cluster of correlated and more specific aspect are found. 

The factors and sub aspects are: 

Conscientiousness
         Industriousness
         Orderliness

Stress Tolerance (aka Neuroticism) 
         Self-Regard
         Stability

Openness to Experience
         Intellectual Disposition
         Experiential Disposition

Extroversion
         Enthusiasm
         Assertiveness 

Agreeableness
         Compassion
         Mannerliness
