Compare and Contrast


Beginning with the Big Five, compare and contrast Cattell’s 16 personality factors and Eysenck’s three personality traits with the big five (listed below). Explain which of Cattell’s and Eysenck’s traits are similar and which do not match any of the others. All 16 of Cattell’s and all 3 of Eysenck’s traits should be discussed. If a trait does not match any of the Big Five, discuss it separately.

The Big Five:

1. Openness

2. Conscientiousness

3. Extroversion

4. Agreeableness

5. Neuroticism


Using trait theory, create a treatment plan for a hypothetical client who has problems getting along with others. In the technique section fully explain the trait assessment or trait tool you would use and why you believe that is the best tool to use. PLEASE ONLY USE THE TEXTBOOK AS MAIN SOURCE.
