Radford 2 Character Evaluation The character I choose to evaluate is Woody, from the motion picture Toy Story 3 (Lasseter & Anderson, 2010). This movie is a favorite of my daughters and we watch this movie often. Woody is a great example of how a person ought to be. Woody belongs to a boy named Andy. Andy is going off to college and the fate of the toys remains unknown; yet Woody remains the voice of reason and the dependable leader he has always been (Disney, n.d.). Woody is an extravert. He is the known leader of the group. Woody is one to take charge in any given situation. When things get tough, Woody takes charge. He is outgoing, assertive, personable, and socially dominant (McAdams, 2006). Woody is in the middle of the spectrum of neuroticism. He is confident that Andy will not throw the toys away but at the same time worries about what will happen when Andy goes away to college. He also worries how Andy will feel if he realizes the toys are missing when they go to the daycare.

Unformatted text preview: His signs of neuroticism come from his worry about others. Woody is low in openness to experience. He is perfectly content to stay in the attic or with Andy at college. He does not want to explore other options like the other toys do. Woody is against being donated and does not want to go to the daycare with the other toys. He is down-to-earth, simple, and non-adventurous (McAdams, 2006). He sometimes gets into situations that require him to be adventurous, but he would prefer to not be in those types of situations. Woody is very high in conscientiousness. He is responsible, dependable, and careful in the things he does (McAdams, 2006). He is logical in trying to tackle problems. He is concerned about consequences and how the consequences will affect everyone. Woody is also high in agreeableness. McAdams 2006 stated, Agreeableness incorporates the expressive qualities of love and empathy, friendliness, cooperation, and care (p.187)....
