The 31 Concept Model scales of the Occupational Personality Questionnaire were factor analysed in a sample of 94 British undergraduates. Parallel analysis indicated that five factors should be extracted, accounting for 50% of the variance. The five factors corresponded to the ‘Big Five’ personality dimensions, providing further evidence for this structural model of personality. Comparison of scale communalities and reliabilities suggested that the five factor solution does not fully account for the reliable scale covariance of the OPQ. Future research should be directed towards factor analysis of OPQ items, to determine the primary factor structure of the questionnaire.
