> Are you familiar with the new, to me, H factor?  I have a book here by Kibeom Lee and Michael Ashton that discusses the Hexaco inventory.  Aside from associating shyness with introversion (only high N introverts may be shy and that's a minority) it's pretty good.  Here is a sample that others in the group might like:
> "People who are low in H (humility/honesty) and high in O (openness - from the Big Five) are aggressively nonconformist.  Their high O results in a natural inclination to be unconventional; their low H in a lack of consideration for other people.  The result is a person who takes a special joy in offending community standards and who defies conventional morality partly in order to gain a reputation for being radical."

Is self-assessment always reliable in evaluating any of these traits? (Not saying you’re wrong, but one has to be careful about self-assessments, no?)

Non-conformity is context dependent, no? So with masks, non-conformity would have to be judged on the basis of the social context, no? In other words, let’s say I live in a small rural community that is solid red and mainly populated by White evangelicals. Wearing a mask would be seen there, back in say early June, as going against the grain.
