The Big-Five model of personality traits is the most popular model among personality psychologists. The Arcus Personality Assessor (APA) is a personality test to see how candidates score on the Big Five personality dimensions, as well as more specific personality facets in context of desired leadership competencies for a position. In addition, each of the Big Five Personality Dimensions are broken into several smaller facets, or sub-components.
