Two studies of the Revised NEO-Personality Inventory (NEO-PI-R) conducted on two different applicant samples (one consisting of 539 female subjects and the other consisting of 396 male subjects) are reported. Factor analysis of the female sample yielded a five-factor solution, highly congruent with the factors presented by Costa, McCrae and Dye (1991). Results of the male data were less clear-cut, yielding four to five factors which were moderately congruent with the American data. The combined male and female sample showed again high congruence coefficients. Various minor deviations in the location of the facet variables are discussed.
