Hans Eysenck conducted secondary factor analyses which he used to identify a simple set of factors that were not correlated with one another. Eysenck called these secondary factor traits super factors. He further then identified a total of three super factors: introversion-extraversion, neuroticism, and psychoticism. I think that the research that was done Allport, Cattell, and Eysenck, were all conducted ethically because the techniques used were all reliable, valid, and based on evidence firsthand. Choose one of the Big Five personality traits discussed in Chapter 8 (openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism). Where do you think you fall on the continuum for that trait? Do you consider this to be an important aspect of your personality?
The Big Five personality trait that best describe me would be agreeableness best describes me since I am a kind-hearted person, very soft for the most part I dislike confrontation, and I trust people until they give me a reason for me do so no longer. Do you think there are certain preferred traits or ideal trait combinations? Everyone has certain preferred traits or trait combinations that will work for them. I do not think there is one specific trait or trait combinations which appeal to everyone. Everyone is different and traits that may be appealing to one person might be unappealing to someone else, so you will have to know which one works best for you. Cervone, Daniel, Lawrence Pervin.
