The Big Five personality traits, also known as the five factor model (FFM), is a model based on common language descriptors of personality.
When factor analysis (a statistical technique) is applied to personality survey data, some words used to describe aspects of personality are often applied to the same person.
For example, someone described as "conscientious" is more likely to be described as "always prepared" rather than "messy". This widely examined theory suggests five broad dimensions used by some psychologists to describe the human personality and psyche.
The five factors have been defined as openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism, often listed under the acronyms OCEAN or CANOE.
Beneath each proposed global factor, a number of correlated and more specific primary factors are claimed. For example, extraversion is said to include such related qualities as gregariousness, assertiveness, excitement seeking, warmth, activity, and positive emotions.
