    Greetings to all Latin D members,
    Today I would like the word on the thread title (Conscientiousness) to be translated into Classical Latin if possible,

    Thank you,
    J.M

    It means; The quality of wishing to do one's work well

    The term is a modern coinage and, in terms of psychology, also a modern concept ... it is hard to translate as there is no equivalent in classical Latin.

    What do you need that for?

    something like this might be close

    aliquid bona fide facere
    bonam fidem habere ad res agendas

    That's wishing to do sth. well ... he was asking for the "quality of ..." ... so I understood it as the technical term from psychology: a measurable personality trait.

    "The quality of" is not as restrictive and technical as you seem to think it is, Bitmap. See this, for example.

    But the psychological term is.

    But you are the one who introduced psychology. The everyday, commonsense meaning existed before the discipline of psychology did.

    Ah well, maybe I'm reading too much into this.
