Knowing good from bad: the paradox of neuroticism, negative affect, and evaluative processing. It has been argued that the Big Five tests do not create an accurate personality profile because the responses given on these tests are not true in all cases.

This highlights the importance of examining interpersonal and non-interpersonal stress separately for males and females.
