This study explores the structure of the Big Five personality traits and the relationship of ethnicity and gender to this structure. Data from a previously published study on gender, ethnicity and the Abridged Big Five Circumplex are reanalyzed using Similarity Structure Analysis (SSA).1 This revealed a radex structure in which the pure five factor markers are arranged in a polar configuration, with Agreeableness placed opposite Neuroticism and Conscientiousness opposite Openness and Extraversion. The structure was verified among the entire survey population and among each sub-population by ethnicity and gender. The Agreeableness and Conscientiousness factors were the least stable.
