Big Five Extraversion is related to Gregariousness and Self-Assurance, Emotional Stability to Self-Assurance and Even Temper, and Agreeableness to Even Temper and Concern for Others. Similar factors have been obtained from lexical data in English (Saucier, 2002), and factors found in studies in Italian (Di Blas & Forzi, 1998) resemble the Multi-Language Seven. However, further replication tests are needed because few studies have used such inclusive variable-selection criteria.

The lowest level includes isolated behaviors (talking with a stranger), and the second level includes recurring behaviors or habits (tending to talk to strangers). The third level involves clusters of interrelated habitual behaviors (sociability, liking to be with people), which one might think of as middle-level traits. The fourth level is composed of amalgamations of middle-level traits that form broad factors (such as Extraversion). Lexical studies suggest that this fourth level might itself be divided into two levels, including an even more highly abstract level such as is represented in composite factors like Evaluation, Social Propriety, and Dynamism.
