Answers will vary, but should contain the following for full credit: The Five-Factor Model, also known as the Big Five Model, proposes that five dimensions form the core of personality:
- Openness to Experience is a combination of intellect and artistic tendencies. Some researchers refer to this trait as Openness/Intellect, and others suggest the best description of this trait is "cognitive exploration." Being receptive to new experiences would anchor one end of this dimension, whereas being conventional or reluctant to try new things would anchor the other end.
- Conscientiousness describes people who are seen as being organized, thoughtful, and responsible. At the other end of this dimension would be those who are careless, irresponsible, or slipshod in their habits.
- Extraversion is a trait that involves the desire to be sociable and to be around people. This dimension is probably the most easily understood, as introversion-a preference for solitary activities or avoidance of social interactions-anchors the opposite endpoint.
- Agreeableness involves the extent to which someone is helpful, trusting, and generally amiable. "Curmudgeonly" might describe the opposite end of this dimension, or perhaps "surly."
- Neuroticism is a trait generally thought of as "emotional instability." The counter to this dimension would be emotional stability, or a sense of being "even-keeled."
