  Measuring the Big Five Personality Factors
The Big Five structure were derived from statistical analyses of which traits tend to co-occur in the population, but the underlying correlations are probabilistic and thus exceptions are possible.
The term "Big Five" was coined by Lew Goldberg and was originally associated with studies of personality traits used in natural language.
For an introduction to the conceptual and measurement issues surrounding the Big Five personality factors, a good place to start is the Handbook of Personality chapter that I wrote with Oliver John.

  Big Five personality traits - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Big Five are a descriptive model of personality, not a theory, although psychologists have developed theories to account for the Big Five.
In unpublished research, Goldberg (the researcher who coined the term "Big Five") found that Cattell's 16 factor solution has greater predictive power than five factors, even when the number of predictors is controlled by using a cross-validation sample to assess the prediction of competing regression models (16 versus 5 variables).
The last weakness of the Big Five, and a criticism which has frequently been levelled at it, is that it is not based on any underlying theory; it is merely an empirical finding that certain descriptors cluster together under factor analysis.

 Big Five game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The phrase Big Five game was coined by big game hunters and refers to the five large mammals that were originally most sought in Africa.
The members of the big five were chosen for the difficulty in hunting them and not their size, which is why the leopard is on the list and the enormous hippopotamus (noted for lazing around in pools and rivers all day) is absent.
The Lion is a large carnivorous feline mammal (Panthera leo) of Africa and northwest India, having a short tawny coat, a tufted tail, and, in the male, a heavy mane around the neck and shoulders.

The Big Five is the name given to a group of former sugarcane corporations that was considered an oligarchy in the Territory of Hawai‘i and had leaned heavily towards the Hawai‘i Republican Party.
The Big Five was comprised of Castle and Cooke, Alexander and Baldwin, C.
The extent of the power that the Big Five had was best summarized by a statement of the Attorney General of Hawai‘i in 1903, "There is a government in this Territory which is centralized to an extent unknown in the United States, and probably almost as centralized as it was in France under Louis XIV."

 The Five-Factor Model
In the big five variant, Goldberg prefers to name the factors according to their positive poles, and in the order derived from the amount of variance each explains (determined through factor analysis), as follows: surgency, agreeablenss, conscientiousness, emotional stability, and intellect.
The big five are circular because many variables (usually adjectives) have large loadings on two factors (i.e., large correlations with two factors), as opposed to only one, or three or more.
Given that the purpose of the big five is to provide correlational evidence between traits and specific behaviors, it may aid an employer to predict which of her applicants is most likely to behave favorably in a given situation.

 The big five and organizational virtue
All five factors have been shown to be valid (systematically related to behavior) and to endure across decades in adults (McCrae and Costa 1990).
For example, the first factor in the FFM is termed alternatively "extroversion" and "surgency," and the fourth factor is known by the alternative terms "emotional stability," "neuroticism," or "nervousness." On the surface, this may seem puzzling.
In short, the field is fairly mute on the issue of the development of "The Big Five" except that it has both genetic and environmental ontogenies.

These five dimensions were derived by asking thousands of people hundreds of questions and then analyzing the data with a statistical procedure known as factor analysis.
In scientific circles, the Big Five is now the most widely accepted and used model of personality (though of course many other systems are used in pop psychology and work contexts; e.g., the MBTI).
