No evidence for a General Factor of Personality in the HEXACO Personality Inventory

    Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

    Abstract

    There have been an increasing number of articles that have speculated on the existence of a General Factor of Personality (GFP) similar to '. g' in intelligence research. In this study, I provide evidence that this general factor may be an artifact of the personality instrument used. Specifically, in two samples I show that depending on the type of analysis used there is either no evidence for a GFP in the HEXACO Personality Inventory or the GFP is found to be uncorrelated to GFPs based on Big Five or FFM instruments. © 2010 Elsevier Inc.
