Why are we measuring the mentioned 6 specific constructs?

The 6 factors in OCEANS are aligned with the Five Factor Model that is one of the most widely researched and
robust empirical frameworks of personality. The FFM suggests personality can be classified based on five broad
dimensions (emotional stability, extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness and openness to experience).
OCEANS has contextually amended and reconfigured this to make it relevant to an organisational culture and to
address existing gaps in personality models such as the FFM.
