The structure of personality traits in adolescents: the Five-Factor Model and the Alternative Five. In the last years, the Five-Factor Model has been object of an increasing interest as a structural descrip- tion of personality. Nevertheless, the usefulness of the model in adolescence has not received enough attention. Particularly scarce are the studies examining its most representative questionnaire (the NEO- PI-R) in adolescent samples. Also scarce are the studies on the ZKPQ-III, which assesses the Zucker- man-Kuhlman «Alternative Five». In this study, the NEO-PI-R and the ZKPQ-III were administered to a sample of adolescents aged 15-19, together with measures of positive and negative affect, antiso- cial behavior and academic failure. These data allow examination of: 1) the structures of the NEO-PI- R and the ZKPQ-III in a young population ; 2) the relationships between both models and revelant co- rrelates, in order to explore their nomological nets; 3) the convergence of the NEO-PI-R and the ZKPQ-III in an integrated model
