What about me? 1. WHAT'S MY BASIC PERSONALITY? The five-factor model of personality - often referred to as the Big Five - has an impressive body of research supporting that five basic personality dimensions underlie human behavior. These five dimensions are defined as follows: Extraversion. Someone who is sociable, talkative, and assertive. High scores indicate an extravert; low scores indicate an introvert. Agreeableness. Someone who is good-natured, cooperative, and trusting. This is a measure of your propensity to defer to others. High scores indicate you value harmony; low scores indicate you prefer having your say or way on issues. Conscientiousness. Someone who is responsible, dependable, persistent, and achievement oriented. High scores indicate that you pursue fewer goals in a purposeful way; low scores indicate that you're more easily distracted, pursue many goals, and are more hedonistic. Emotional stability. Someone who is calm, enthusiastic, and secure. High scores indicate positive emotional stability; low scores indicate negative emotional stability. Openness to experience. Someone who is imaginative, artistically sensitive, and intellectual. High scores indicate a wide range of interests and a fascination with novelty and innovation; low scores indicate you're more conventional and find comfort in the familiar. Your personality score was calculated as follows (with reverse scoring on those items marked with an asterisk). Scores in each category will range from 3 to 15: Items 1, 6, and 11* Extraversion You scored 9 Items 2*, 7, and 12 Agreeableness You scored 14 Items 3, 8, and 13 Conscientiousness You scored 13 Items 4, 9, and 14* Emotional Stability You scored 7 Items 5*, 10*, and 15* Openness to Experience You scored 7 The most impressive evidence relates to the conscientiousness dimension. Studies show that conscientiousness predicts job performance for all occupational groups. The preponderance of evidence indicates that individuals who are dependable, reliable, thorough, organized, able to plan, and persistent tend to have higher job performance in most, if not all, occupations. 2 WHAT'S MY JUNGIAN 16 TYPE PERSONALITY? Your score is: I S T J The Jungian 16 Type Personality is a very popular personality framework. It classifies people as extroverted or introverted (E or I), sensing or intuitive (S or N), thinking or feeling (T or F), and perceiving or judging (P or J). These classifications can then be combined into sixteen personality types (for example, INTJ, ENTP).
