The five-factor model (FPM) of personality is obtaining construct validation, recognition, and practical consideration across a broad domain of fields, including clinical psychology, industrial-organizational psychology, and health psychology. As a result, an array of instruments have been developed and existing instruments are being modified to assess the FFM. In this article, we present an overview and critique of five such instruments (the Goldberg Big Five Markers, the revised NED Personality Inventory, the Interpersonal Adjective Scales-Big Five, the Personality Psychopathology- Five, and the Hogan Personality Inventory), focusing in particular on their representation of the lexical FFM and their practical application.
