Big five & organizational virtue

" Of course, there are a whole host of critics of the FFM largely on technical grounds (e.g., Block 1995, Eysenck 1993, McAdams 1992). The concern has also been voiced that the popularity of the FFM is due to a socio-political shift to the right (Comer 1993) since it posits character and not environment as the most important behavioral determinant. In any event, the impact of the FFM on the social sciences is undeniable (Digman 1989; McCrae, Costa, and Busch 1986). The central question for this paper is whether there is anything in this research stream that enlightens the subject of the virtues in business ethics."
