I have seen 品格，品质，人品，人格，素质 all defined as moral quality or character, though I'm guessing there's more nuance in the way they are used. Are these words interchangeable or do they describe different things? What is the connotation of each? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide
It would try to explain the difference in English on my best and I will include the common meanings.
It means generally the way a person deals or reacts with the outside world, it could also refer to the quality and character of a literature work. It could also mean the quality of a product, but people often use the word 品质 for this meaning.
It refers the quality of a product or the quality of a person's morality, IQ, EQ, health and so on.
It means personality, however, more on the degree of a person's morality in the society. Although, recently, people has been using 人品 as luck, this is not yet officially accepted as a meaning for this word.
This means personality.
It refers to the quality of a person's behavior.
They are both to describe a person, it seems similar at first glance.
If you say someone's 品质 is bad, means he likes to do bad things, like steal, betrayal. Or, a honest one is a 品质很好的人.
You can also describe a product.
It is a higher standard than 品质. You can say that a man is 品质好的人 if he never did anything bad, but if he did some good things on his own initiative, he would be a 品格高尚的人.
It is almost same with 品质, except used for human only.
It is roughly same with 品格. But can be used in science, a man with multiple personality disorder is describe as 多重人格, not 多重品格. If we say someone 人格缺陷, that means he has a illness in medical science.
It is related to manner and education. Talking loudly and spit is 没有素质.
