Agreeableness is a personality trait manifesting itself in behavioral characteristics that are perceived as kind, sympathetic, cooperative, warm and considerate.


  • There is no other difference between an olive and a wild olive tree; or between a crab and an apple and other fruits of this kind; but that some are cultivated in gardens, and are a sort of domestic fruits, whilst the others grow wild in woods and fields. Now we ought to esteem him alone an agreeable and good-natured man, who, in his daily intercourse with others, behaves in such a manner as friends usually behave to each other. For as a person of that rustic character appears, wherever he comes, like a mere stranger: so, on the contrary, a polite man, wherever he goes, seems as easy as if he were amongst his intimate friends and acquaintance.
