Personality traits/animals/ethology/Gosling: Commonly studied personality traits include: exploration, boldness, fearfulness, aggression, general activity, emotionality, confidence and timidity. To get a better idea of which traits emerge in structural analyses of personality Gosling and John (1999)(1) reviewed nineteen factor analytic studies across twelve non-human species. They used the Five-Factor Model (FFM) plus Dominance and Activity as an organizing framework for the findings. The FFM dimensions of Extraversion, Neuroticism and Agreeableness showed considerable generality across the twelve species included in their review. >Five-Factor Model, >Agreeableness, >Neuroticism, >Extraversion, >Personality traits/psychological theories.
