The five-factor model of personality (FFM)

This model of personality features five big traits: openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. Each of these big five traits can be broken down further into six facets, for a total of 30 facets.

Someone high in openness to experience appreciates art, likes abstract thinking, theories
intellectually curious, imaginative, creative, adventurous, and tends to fantasize.

Conscientiousness is characterized by being reliable, hard-working and productive, consistent, steady, organized, and decisive.

Those high in extraversion are comfortable in crowds, assertive, friendly, outgoing, disinhibited,
talkative, and have positive emotions.

Agreeableness is characterized by trust, modesty, being gentle and kind, having a lot of empathy,
following the rules, and being straightforward.

Neuroticism is characterized by emotional lability (emotionally unstable), insecurity, being angry, depressed, anxious, hostile, and being impulsive (in the sense of not being able to resist temptation).
