Criticism of the OCEANS model of Hiring Assessment for Human Resources
Openness to experience – the willingness to explore fantasy, actions and ideas.
Conscientiousness – shown as competence, order, and self-discipline.
Extraversion – the display of positive emotions, gregariousness, and warmth.
Agreeableness – showing trust, straightforwardness, and tender-mindedness.
Neuroticism – the tendency towards anxiety, self-consciousness, and vulnerability.
First, the extraversion component seems maldefined.
Second, neurotocism includes “self-consciousness” which is a component of emotional intelligence. It would seem like hyper-self-concsiousness would be a better word.
Notice, however there is a degree of usefulness to the OCEANS model as described here.
