“Personality refers to those characteristics of the person that account for consistent patterns of feelings, thinking, and behaving” (Pervin, 2005). Personality also refers to individual differences in characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. There are different types of personalities that sometimes distinguished from personality traits. There are Big Five personality traits that are used to describe human personality, the five factor model (FFM). The five factors model includes openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism(Wikipedia, n.d.).
In recent years, personality in a life span and the relationship between aging and personality traits have been increasingly studied. According to Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary, personality is defined as the various aspects of a person’s character that make everyone different from each other. McCare and Costa (1997) proposed an assessment of personality traits in diverse cultures which are extraversion, neuroticism (emotional instability), openness, agreeableness, and conscientiousness (as cited in Schimmack Oishi, Furr & Funder, 2004). These five dimensions are known as five-factor model, often called the Big Five personality traits.
Secondly, agreeableness personality includes characteristics like: trustworthiness, kindness, and affectionate. People who are have this trait have the tendency of being more cooperative in contrast to those who are those who are the opposite. People who are agreeable tend to: have be more interest with other people, caring, concerned for other people and enjoy helping. I believe that have these characteristics of contributing to the happiness to other people. Thirdly, is conscientiousness which includes high levels of thoughtfulness.
Eysenck’s strategy of looking for broad themes to categorize groups of traits was admired by other psychologists, but it was also recognized that his dimensions didn 't exhaust the full range of personality characteristics (McCrae & John, 1992). Through investigation of the validity of Cattell and Eysenck’s structures of personality however, researchers made a monumental discovery in personality theory; the Five Factor model of Personality (Fehriinger,
The five senses are one of the ways for a human being to interact with the world and gain intellect. For instance, we use our vision in order to identify different colors and matter in general. Our five senses are also our primary source of intellect as we make use of this to gain basic knowledge such as counting, color identification and etc. However we may pose a question to this statement; to what extent are our senses actually reliable in gaining intellect? Even if we use our senses to obtain basic knowledge, there are cases where your senses may actually deceive you.
The study was based on the integration of McCrae and Costa’s theory on religion which stemmed from their five factor theory, the dimensions of the Multidimensional Inventory for Religious/Spiritual Well-Being (RSWB) and Ryff’s Six Core Dimensions of Psychological Well-Being. According to McCrae and Costa (as cited in Espinosa & Mijares, 2014), Religiosity is a cultural adaption resulting from the five factor model of personality. Hennigsgaard & Arnau (2008) found that in a univariate level, religiosity variables show significant correlations with the Big Five Personality Traits. A series of studies that used Eysenck’s three dimensional model of personality found that of the three dimensions (Psychoticism, Extroversion, Neuroticism), only Psychoticism has been found to have a consistent negative correlation to religiosity across a variety of cultures and denominations (Saroglou, 2002) while in studies using the Big Five

There have been large amounts of research which has been carried out in order to attempt to explain the causes of happiness, and a considerable amount has shown that extraversion is closely related (McCrae and Costa, 1980, Tamir, 2009).
