This paper provides the results of validation of an extremely brief measure of Big Five personality traits – Ten Item Personality Inventory (TIPI) – in Russian and Azerbaijani students. 553 students participated in the study: 202 students from Moscow, Russia, and 351 students from Baku, Azerbaijan (138 students studying in Russian and tested in Russian, and 213 students studying and tested in Azerbaijani language). Multigroup confirmatory factor analysis shows good configural and partial measurement invariance of the Inventory in Russian and Azerbaijani languages. Good fit indices for all groups were obtained when 9 out of 10 items were included in the model, excluding one item for "agreeableness". The findings also depict similar and culturally specific correlations between Big Five personality traits in two cultural samples. In particular, scores on all factors obtained from Russian men and women did not differ significantly from those in Azerbaijani men and women tested in Russian language. When the scores of Russian men and women were compared to the scores of Azerbaijani men and women tested in Azerbaijani language, Russian men and women showed higher disagreement while Azerbaijani men and women showed higher conscientiousness. Intercorrelations’ analysis revealed negative correlations between extraversion and emotional stability on both Azerbaijani groups whereas on Russian group extraversion correlated positively with openness.

Keywords: cross-cultural validation, Big-five, Ten Item Personality Inventory (TIPI), extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability, openness to experience
