The hypothesis that the association between flow proneness and the Big Five personality traits is primarily at the level of the general factor of personality (GFP) was tested. By reanalyzing data from a previous study, and analyzing data collected from a convenience sample, support was found for the hypothesis. The results suggest that flow proneness may be an additional construct that could be added to the nomological network of constructs that are strongly associated with the GFP.
