First is the format of the items. While the ER5FP contains bipolar items e. Second is the content of the factors. As one can see in the two previous paragraphs, there are somewhat different emphases in the content of each of the factors. This is also a consequence of the deletion of items in the analyses. The means of the ER5FP factor scores identified in the development study and in the current study resemble the findings of Donnellan et al. The data for the Conscientiousness and Openness factors approximate the results presented by the authors regarding the TIPI Ten-Item Personality Inventory data, which also have a response scale of 7 points.
Similarities were found comparing differences between groups for the data obtained with the two instruments.
On both scales, women presented higher average scores on Neuroticism. Parents obtained higher scores on Agreeableness with both instruments. Concerning the covariate age, the results revealed significant differences for Agreeableness on the two scales, indicating that older people tend to be more agreeable. Regarding marital status, the only difference was on the factor Agreeableness of the ER5FP data, with married participants scoring higher. No differences were found for the level of education. This last result could be related to a homogeneity regarding the educational background in the sample analyzed in this study.
However, exploring the theoretical implications of the observed differences is beyond the scope of this study. The sample has other limitations.
Because it was carried out basically in the Distrito Federal and in the Metropolitan Region of Salvador, Bahia, the study did not present a representative sample of the entire Brazilian population. In addition, since data collection was performed in educational institutions, there was little variability in the response pattern, which is not the most recommended in studies that seek to evaluate the psychometric quality of instruments. Future studies will benefit if carried out with representative samples, so as to cover the entire national territory. Investigating convergent validity is an essential step in the development of psychometric instruments and theoretical models.
Thus, this study contributes in advancing the research with the FFM, as well as in developing measurement instruments. In addition to investigating the psychometric properties of the instruments, this study may also encourage further research on the relationship between personality and issues related to social context. Finally, the results of this study and those from the works of Passos and Laros and Andrade provided preliminary evidence that ER5FP and IGFP-5R are moderately good alternatives for use in future research involving personality assessment within the theoretical framework of the five-factor model.
