"OCEAN" is a good way to determine the personality of an individual or a culture. But Ocean's Factors specific levels varies, due to the outside variables and factors that had played a part of the development or flourishing of a Culture. With it comes to consistency, Permanence is impossible, Only change is permanent in this world.

Even a cultures' Big Five personality factors' levels may change through time, similar to a person who can have a change of personality due to a extraneous variables, In a large scale imagine a culture with people who have changing personalities, through time the society and it's culture all soon follow.
