Final Answer :
Explanation :
Self-absorption is an important trait that is not included among the Big Five personality traits (Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism). Neuroticism is actually one of the Big Five, while carelessness and suspicion are not considered separate major personality traits in this model.
