How to calculate your Big Five score: Sum up the values that you indicated and divide the sum by 2: Extraversion: Item 1(R) and Item 6 Agreeableness: Item 2 and Item 7(R) Conscientiousness: Item 3(R) and Item 8 Neuroticism: Item 4(R) and Item 9 Openness: Item 5(R) and Item 10 “(R)” means that you need to reverse score the item before making a sum. Reverse scoring means that the scale runs in the opposite direction. For example, if you indicated a value of ‘2’ in response to Item 1, it would score ‘4’ in the sum. 1.3 Personality - Big 5 Measurement
