The Personality Inventory was developed in context of the Five Factor Model.

The FFM (Five Factor Model) specifies that people can be described based on their standing on the five broad personality traits. Mettl scientists went beyond the well-established model of the broad “Big Five” personality factors, and developed 26 ‘scales’ or narrower facet-like constructs, which form the building blocks of our assessment.

The “Big Five” personality traits, as they’ve come to be known, have shown to predict important job-related outcomes such as job performance, a person’s potential for burnout, their trainability and subsequent job satisfaction. These five factors are:

  1. Extraversion (outgoing/energetic vs. solitary/reserved),
  2. Openness to experience (inventive/curious vs. consistent/cautious),
  3. Emotional stability (secure/confident vs. sensitive/nervous),
  4. Agreeableness (friendly/compassionate vs. cold/unkind), and
  5. Conscientiousness (efficient/organized vs. easy-going/careless)
