Some have alternatively argued that PV and NV reflect response styles, that they may merely be artifacts of skewed dimensions, that they are only reflections of self- esteem, or are maladaptive extremes of the Big Five. Simms was also interested in whether these evaluative dimensions might be broader or more circumscribed than the Big Five, if they did not fit at that level of the hierarchy. Ultimately, do the Big Seven predict personality pathology better than do the Big Five, with particular emphasis on NPD, BPD, and ASPD. Using the Inventory of Personal Characteristics (IPC-7), the Big Five Inventory (BFI), the Schedule for Nonadaptive and Adaptive Personality (SNAP-2), the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI), and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES), with 403 undergraduates, Simms asserted that PV and NV add to our predictions beyond the Big Five.
