Abstract: The aim of the current study was to explore where authenticity, derived from the humanistic tradition of psychology, was positioned within a number of extant models of personality. Exploratory and Confirmatory Factor Analysis of data from four samples (total N = 1286) suggested that authenticity can be considered as loading on the Honesty-Humility factor of personality. These findings are discussed in terms of the wider theoretical overlaps between Honesty-Humility and psychological functioning as emphasised by the humanistic tradition of psychology.
