Answers will vary, but should contain the following for full credit: Raymond Cattell developed the 16-PF model of personality. He identified 16 core personality dimensions that he thought captured the structure of personality. The Eysencks argued that a two-factor model (extraversion and neuroticism) was sufficient to account for variations in personality. They later added psychoticism as a third factor, although this addition was met with some degree of controversy. Costa and McCrae developed the Five-Factor Model, also known as the Big Five model, to account for core personality dimensions. Openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism were the factors they identified. All three approaches adopt a trait view of personality, and all three models recognize traits such as extraversion or neuroticism as primary personality dimensions. The models differ in terms of how many core dimensions each proposes as being sufficient to account for variations in human personality.
