Abstract: This chapter examines the relation between the Five Factor Model of personality and momentary affect in five languages, based on a pooled sample of 2070 (N̲ for English = 535, N̲ for Spanish = 233, N̲ for Chinese = 487, N̲ for Japanese = 450, N̲ for Korean = 365). Affect is described with a two-dimensional space that integrates major dimensional models in English and that replicates well in all five languages. Personality is systematically linked to affect similarly (although not identically) across languages, but not in a way consistent with the claim that Positive Activation and Negative Activation are more basic; indeed, Pleasant versus Unpleasant and Activated versus Deactivated came closer to the personality dimensions.
