In the paper, the author describes how based on the data from a big experiment and handwriting analysis software GraphoPro®, the Big Five factors were designed and validated.  The factors were modeled with the help of the cluster analysis and demonstrated promising results when compared to the NEO-PI-R test. Based on the resulting outcomes the author proposes further replication studies should be done.
