This paper is intended to examine the validity of Big 5 Personality test inventory of 44 questions with 5-Likert Scale measurement. Confirmatory factory analysis (CFA) was conducted to determine the good fit indices of the 5 personality types. Those types are 1) extraversion, 2) agreeableness, 3) conscientiousness, 4) openness and 5) neuroticism. The data was collected from a self-reported questionnaire administered to 207 undergraduate students. The results of CFA found the inventory to be a valid and reliable measurement for types of personality except for neuroticism. Also, the measurement was found to be applicable across gender.
