We examined the six largest dimensions of the Turkish personality lexicon, as derived from the personality-descriptive terms of the data set of Goldberg and Somer (2000). The six Turkish lexical factors showed close correspondences to all six dimensions observed in several other languages. In a new data set, we then correlated factor scores representing these indigenous Turkish dimensions with the scales of the HEXACO Personality Inventory, which operationalizes the six cross-language factors. Results showed a pattern of strong convergent and weak discriminant correlations. Overall, findings suggest that the cross-language six-dimensional structure of personality description does generalize to the Turkish lexicon.
