We present two studies testing the validity and nomological properties of the Turkish adaptation of the Big Five Inventory–2 (BFI-2) using a university student sample and a nationally representative community sample of young adults aged 18–35. Findings from the university student sample replicate the psychometric properties of the BFI-2. Findings from the community sample replicate the factor structure and majority of the trait-outcome associations obtained from non-community samples in WEIRD populations. However, there were notable differences in terms of the internal consistency reliabilities of the personality domains, and some trait-outcome associations, specifically with outcomes that are germane to the Turkish culture.
