Jonathan Stromp Human Capital 3-28-2011 In order to accurately self assess my personality; I used the help of IPIP-NEO personality test. For this test the five dimensions of personality are rated low, average, and high. If the result is low then the overall score for that category must be below 35. If the score is average it must range from 35-65. Finally if it is scored high then it must be greater than 65. The test classified me as an average extrovert, low agreeableness, low conscientiousness, high neuroticism, and low on openness to experience. The first trait indicated by my results covers the area of extraversion. My results stated that my score is average which indicates I’m neither a subdued loner nor a jovial chatterbox. This indicates that I prefer alone time the same as I enjoy hanging out with other people. When breaking down the extrovert trait there are six sub-components: friendliness, gregariousness, assertiveness, activity level, excitement-seeking, and cheerfulness. Out of these six subcomponents I only scored high in excitement-seeking which means I’m easily bored without high levels of stimulation. I had an extremely low score in my activity level which means I live a much more relaxed and slow-paced life. Finally my scores were average for friendliness, gregariousness, assertiveness, and cheerfulness. The friendliness component is determined by how quickly I can make friends and my ability to form close and intimate relationships with other people. Gregariousness is determined by the extent to which a person enjoys socializing with large crowds of people and the belief that the company of others is pleasant and rewarding. The assertiveness component rates how likely a person is going to speak out, take charge, and direct the activity of the group. The final subcomponent of cheerfulness is a scale that measures positive mood and feelings, but not negative emotions.

The next trait is agreeableness. My scores for this trait were low which indicates less concern with others’ needs than with my own. This means that people see me as tough, critical and uncompromising. The six sub-components of agreeableness are trust, morality, altruism, cooperation, modesty, and sympathy. The only one of these I scored high in was altruism, which means that I enjoy helping others in need and find it genuinely rewarding. I had average scores in both the trust and modesty sub categories. An average score in trust reveals that I believe people are fair, honest, and have good intentions. However, it also means I think some people are selfish, devious and potentially dangerous. Modesty is rated on how highly one thinks of their self usually dealing with their confidence level. My average score indicates that I’m not overly confident, but I do a high enough self-esteem to keep my head held high. Finally I had very low scores in the sub categories of morality, cooperation, and sympathy. A low score in morality indicates that I believe a certain amount of deception is involved in a social relationship. In contrast a high score indicates that no manipulation is necessary to have a good social
