validity. Allport’s use of idiographic measures and lack of detail to explain his results and observations. After reading about the Big Five personality traits I decided to look at my results from the other week and take the test again. My results remained basically the same and I have a high score in conscientiousness. I do agree with this score since I am very driven and ambitious. I always try my best from start to finish when I am completing a task. I strive to do my best and I take my responsibilities seriously. I am very well-organized when it comes to my schoolwork and my house, so I agree with this aspect. It is interesting because when I was in high school (graduated 10 years ago), I consider myself to have been the complete opposite of how I am now. I am also very reliable, and I have always been the one that everyone turns to when they need help or need someone to be there for them. I am that “ill drop anything for you” person. I do consider this to be an important aspect of my personality because conscientiousness describes so much of who I am. I am reliable, well-organized, self- disciplined, careful, and strive to do my best. I think that some trait combinations could either be good or bad. Someone, like my brother for instance who is an extrovert and highly open, gets himself into too much trouble in various situations. Sometimes he oversteps his
boundaries when it comes to asking and giving information that might not be the appropriate time or context.
