In this study, the authors examine the generalizability of the Five-Factor Model of personality
to the Romanian population by describing the translation and validation of the Romanian
version of the Revised NEO Personality Inventory (NEO PI-R). Using data from five samples
and multiple sources (self-reports, other-reports, and school records) and over two thousand
participants, they examined the internal consistency, test−retest reliability, factor structure,
self−other agreement, and correlations with age, gender, education, and academic performance.
Construct-related validity evidence was obtained by examining the correlations of the NEO PI-R
with the Big Five Questionnaire and Big Five Adjectives. The results suggest that the Five-Factor
Model generalizes to the Romanian cultural context and that the Romanian NEO PI-R has sound
psychometric properties comparable with normative samples in America and elsewhere.
