With the information presented about these three individuals, I feel as if they remained ethically sound with their work. Majority of the research shown was done with a correlational research design, and most of the time, using S-data. (self-reported data and/or questionnaires.) Looking into the five factors of the Big Five Personality Traits, I have chosen neuroticism. I feel as if, me personally, I would be more on the high score side. Thinking about myself and the traits I know I display, worrying, emotional, and insecurities are big negative opponents to myself. Of course, a lot of people in fact suffer with these traits, it is something that can be worked on and helped/fixed over time. In my case, working towards not worrying as much, which I believe to have gotten better about, along with emotional. There are days, I think, that I
would be more on the low score side; calm, relaxed, unemotional. But it is one of those things that does change. Yes, I do believe there to be certain preferable traits or ideal trait combinations. In most cases, people do not choose to be insecure, or worrisome about everything. Then using openness as another example, people want to be surrounded by things (traits) or people they like or have in common. So, if for example, one person is not so artistic, but maybe they like art, they may prefer to look for that artistic ability in another person. References: Cervone, D., & Pervin, L. A. (2019).
