The Five-Factor Model of Personality Across Cultures / Edition 1by Robert R. McCrae
Pub. Date: 08/31/2002
Publisher: Springer US
Asserting that research into personality largely ignores the question of culture on the assumption that personality traits are universal, McCrae (National Institute on Aging, US) and Allik (U. of Tartu, Estonia) 14 papers that cross-culturally examine one particular model that claims comprehensiveness. The model (developed, in part, by McCrae) is a hierarchical model in which specific traits are organized in terms of the factors of neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness. Papers theoretically address the generalizability or cultural specificity of the model before turning their attention to case studies from the Philippines, sub- Saharan Africa, Turkey, India, Portugal, and Russia.
