DOMINGUEZ-LARA, Sergio; MERINO-SOTO, César; ZAMUDIO, Bruno  e  GUEVARA-CORDERO, Claudia. Big Five Inventory in Peruvian College Students: Preliminary Results of Its Validation. Psykhe [online]. 2018, vol.27, n.2, pp.1-12. ISSN 0718-2228.

The aim of this study was to examine the internal structure of the Big Five Inventory (BFI) in a nonprobability sample of 332 students (82.83% women) aged between 16 and 48 years (M = 20,39) who attended a private university in Metropolitan Lima, Peru. An exploratory factor analysis was performed using unweighted least squares and oblique Procrustes rotation with fully specified target matrix. In addition, the linear Pearson correlations between the factors were calculated. The BFI was found to have a factor structure similar to that of the original test, although 7 items were removed. The 37-items version displayed good internal consistency according to ordinal alpha, omega, and H. In conclusion, the BFI exhibits favorable psychometric indicators that suggest that it can be used in group evaluations and basic research.
