Over these past years, German researchers have shown much interest for Costa and McCrae's five factor model as well as for their instrument: the NEO-Five-Factor Inventory . Nevertheless, results from a recent survey study using the German version of the NEO-FFI on a representative population sample (n = 1908) have reported problems to replicate the factor structure of the instrument. Insufficient psychometric indices of single items led to partly unsatisfactory scale values. A logical consequence of this was the development of a short version of the instrument with better psychometric properties. This article reports item and scale values of the NEO-FFI-30 for the German population sample. The five scales reach good internal consistency and are highly correlated with the original NEO-FFI scales. Furthermore, the influence of sociodemographic variables and correlations with the Giessentest appear to be very similar for both the original instrument and the short version. Moreover, the factor structure was replicated in an independent sample of 2508 adults. Results confirm the reliability, and factor and construct validity of this economic instrument without any significant loss in information.

    ABSTRACT: A note of caution against treating diversity faultlines as social category salience and against treating diversity beliefs as a trait In this paper, we tested two implicit assumptions from diversity research: That faultlines are synonymous to social categorizations and are hence detrimental for group performance in diverse groups and that diversity beliefs are a stable trait. In a laboratory study, we found that experimentally induced faultlines were not related to perceptions of salient social categories. Further, perceptions of social categories moderated the relationship between diversity faultlines and an observational measure of information elaboration: If perceptions of social categories were low, diversity faultlines were positively related to elaboration. In another study with longitudinal field data, we tested whether diversity beliefs change over time as a result of experiences in diverse teams. Diversity beliefs predicted team performance only if they were elicited in close temporal proximity to the performance measure, and current diversity beliefs were shaped by prior diversity beliefs and prior identification with a diverse team. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, the common dimensional-structure of measures of Big Five personality, social attitudes, personal values, conservatism, and ideological beliefs (right-wing authoritarianism and social dominance orientation) was investigated in two convenience samples of adults (Study 1, paper-and-pencil, N = 302; Study 2, Internet, N = 154). A principal components analysis resulted in a three-factor solution in both samples. In particular, a strong ideology factor emerged that can be interpreted as representing an ideological belief system. It is characterized by a right-wing, conservative orientation, social prejudice, ideological beliefs, the value orientations of self-enhancement, low self-transcendence, and the personality trait of low Openness to Experience. The other two factors comprised socially desirable personality traits and values, and a blend of personality and personal-value orientations characterized by energy, activity, openness, and curiosity, respectively. The results are interpreted in relation to recent structural and process models of personality, ideological beliefs, and social attitudes.
