PSY 100 Fall 2008 Madigan Paper 2: Interpreting Your Big Five Inventory Scores Basic Requirements For this paper, you will be doing three things: 1. Reporting and describing your scores on five personality dimensions. 2. Evaluating scores on the basis of your own life experience. 3. Discussing validity of the Big Five Inventory (BFI). 1a. Reporting Your Scores Prepare a chart with scores on the y-axis and the name of the scales (or abbreviations of them) on the x-axis. Show a bar chart of your score AND the college student sample mean score for your gender (provided on page 3) for each scale. (Please do not create 3D charts.) Example: If you are female and your scores were Openness (O) = 42, Conscientiousness (C) = 25, Extraversion (E) = 22, Agreeableness (A) = 28, Neuroticism (N) = 16, your chart may look like the following: 1b. Describing Your Scores Refer to the tables on page 3 and describe whether you score high, average, or low on each personality dimension. Example: Based on table 2 for female on page 3, a score above 40 is considered high for the Openness scale. One way to interpret your score of 42 is that this may indicate that you are very open to new experience. Based on the same table, a score below 18 is considered low for the Neuroticism scale. One way to interpret your score of 16 is that you are emotionally stable and low on neuroticism. 2. Evaluating Your Scores with Your Experience
