Most people have vices, such as, at times, dishonesty and cowardice,
some argue that these are global character traits as well. However such a claim is empirically inadequate.
It is probably more true to say that most people have local character traits, which are virtues and vices restricted to narrow types of situations such as the courtroom or the bar.
And is probably true to say that most people have mixed character traits, which are global traits that are neither good enough to qualify as virtues nor bad enough to qualify as vices. They are constituted by some morally positive and some morally negative dispositions. Some character traits to consider:
|Neuroticism||Anxiety, Angry Hostility, Depression, Self-Consciousness, Impulsiveness, Vulnerability|
|Extraversion||Warmth, Gregariousness, Assertiveness, Activity, Excitement Seeking, Positive Emotions|
|Openness to Experience||Fantasy, Aesthetics, Feelings, Actions, Ideas, Values|
|Agreeableness||Trust, Straightforwardness, Altruism, Compliance, Modesty, Tender-Mindedness|
|Conscientiousness||Competence, Order, Dutifulness, Achievement Striving, Self-Discipline, Deliberation|
