 Lexical Hypothesis - Psychology Dictionary of Arguments
 
Lexical hypothesis: The lexical hypothesis in psychology posits that the most significant and universally shared personality traits are encoded in language. It suggests that over time, important traits become part of everyday vocabulary. This hypothesis forms the basis for many personality theories and assessments, including the Big Five personality traits model, which categorizes traits into openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. See also Personality traits, Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, Neuroticism, Everyday language, Folk psychology.
