 The six most important personality dimensions and the HEXACO Personality Inventory

R.E. de Vries, M.C. Ashton & K. Lee, Gedrag & Organisatie, volume 22, September 2009, nr. 3, pp. 232-274

Recent lexical research on the structure of personality has revealed six independent and cross-cultural corresponding dimensions of personality in the same datasets that have led to the emergence of the Big Five model of personality. These six dimensions, Honesty-Humility, Emotionality, Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, and Openness to Experience, constitute the HEXACO model of personality. In two studies, the psychometric properties of the Dutch HEXACO Personality Inventory (HEXACO-PI) and the Dutch HEXACO Personality Inventory-Revised (HEXACO-PI-R) and the relations of its factor- and facet-scales with background variables, the NEO-PI-R, the Dutch Personality Questionnaire (DPQ), and the Sensation Seeking Scale (SSS) are investigated. The results show that the HEXACO-PI(-R) has sound psychometric properties and is meaningfully related to the abovementioned questionnaires. Implications for personality research and assessment are discussed.
