Structure of personality: Search for a general factor viewed from a temperament perspective
Bogdan Zawadzki , Jan Strelau
AbstractWe examined the general factor of personality (GFP) in the structure of six Polish language inventories (32 scales) and found the GFP most saturated by temperament traits located within Neuroticism and Extraversion (with high congruence between samples and applied measures). Data were obtained in two samples comprising over 2000 individuals by self-report and peer-ratings from analyses of six following inventories: NEO-FFI, EPQ-R, EAS-TS, DOTS-R, PTS, and FCB-TI. We suggest that arousability is the pivotal biological mechanism for these traits (and the GFP) and above this, the GFP may primarily reflect only a classification of basic dimensions of personality, based on their shared variances, which it is not useful to reduce to one general factor.
