Corr I 133
Cultural psychology/cultural differences/generalizability/five-factor model/personality traits/De Raad: replicability. In pursuit of a cross-lingual trait-structure, Hofstee, Kiers, De Raad et al. (1997)(1), De Raad, Perugini and Szirmák (1997)(2) and De Raad, Perugini, Hrebícková and Szarota (1998)(3) compared several psycholexically derived five factor structures using psychometric criteria. The general conclusion of those studies was that congruence coefficients calculated for corresponding Big Five factors suggested the replicability of the first three factors of the Big Five (Extraversion, Agreeableness and Conscientiousness) and moderate replicability of the fourth factor, Emotional Stability. Moreover, cross-cultural comparisons based on the substance of Big Five factors from six different psycholexical studies also led to the conclusion that Extraversion, Agreeableness and Conscientiousness are cross-culturally coherent, Emotional Stability and Intellect are not (De Raad and Peabody 2005(4); Peabody and De Raad 2002)(5).
