    It's based on the same idea, known as the "Lexical Hypothesis". The Big Five's factors were all taken from the West, so they fail to accurately reflect a truly global or universally human narrative. The addition of the "Humility/Honesty" factor, for instance, reflects that HEXACO's factors include East Asian narratives

    That's no test. That's a site about a book.

    nice test.

    However honesty/humility, the new axis, scores like two new axis for me. I score high on sincerety part, but low on fraudulent part. I'm straightforward towards people i meet, but i have no problem planning a bankrobbery if i can get away with it.

    the other normal big 5 axis, score normal. So yeah it's not a good addition, maybe they should make it a big 7.
