It is your goal to make complex ideas understandable and to demonstrate your psychology knowledge.
Northwestern University This paper examines the five-factor model, a tool used for dimensionally studying personality. Aspects of the model given attention include the specific variables in the model, other related models, and clinical applications of the model.
The quality of the model is then evaluated based on five criteria: Ultimately, it is evident that the model fits most of the criteria for greatness, but falls somewhat short of being a great theory in personality because it is not truly a theory. The Model One of the long held goals of psychology has been to establish a model that can conveniently describe human personality, and disorders therein, with the intent to use this model in the remedying of personality disorders and improving general understanding of personality.
Currently, a handful of models have risen to prominence, and have thus far stood the test of time. Some models are more generally accepted than others. Support for some models seems to come and go in cycles. One of the more prominent models in contemporary psychology is what is known as the five-factor model of personality Digman, This theory incorporates five different variables into a conceptual model for describing personality.
These five different factors are often referred to as the "Big 5" Ewen,p. The five-factor theory is among the newest models developed for the description of personality, and this model shows promise to be among the most practical and applicable models available in the field of personality psychology Digman, Thorough critical attention is given to the proposal that the five-factor model is in fact a great theory.
The Five Factors As it became evident to many psychologists that, mathematically, combinations of five factors were useful in describing personality, there was a need to clearly define what these factors were.
Indeed, this process led to some dissent in the ranks. One dissenter from the five-factor theorists was renowned psychologist H. Eysenck felt that, due to overlaps in the five factors and their correlates, in fact a three-factor model was more appropriate and accurate.
His theory is called the PEN model which stand for psychoticism, extroversion, neuroticism Eysenck,or sometimes is even shortened to the two factor E-IN model extroversion-introversion, neuroticism Eysenck, According to Eysenck, "Factor analysis has improved the situation However, of the major "factor-analytic models Through extensive debating and experimenting, there is currently a general consensus in the realms of scholarly psychology as to the identity of the five factors, and their basic interpretations and values to analysis of personality.
The five factors are extroversion-introversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness Ewen, Extroversion also is sometimes referred to as social adaptability, though the popularity of this term seems to be waning Zuckerman, Extroversion is defined as "a trait characterized by a keen interest in other people and external events, and venturing forth with confidence into the unknown" Ewen,p.
Neuroticism is the other trait to play a role in most of the contemporary factor models for personality.A guide to writing conclusions in abstracts for Addiction. Addiction publishes abstracts that are clear, accurate and succinct.
