Big five personality test

Your Personality Trait Scores

This Big Five assessment measures your scores on five major dimensions of personality: Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism (sometimes abbreviated OCEAN). Check out your scores on each of the five dimensions in the graphs below, then read on to discover what each score means.


Openness describes a person’s tendency to think in abstract, complex ways. High scorers tend to be creative, adventurous, and intellectual. They enjoy playing with ideas and discovering novel experiences. Low scorers tend to be practical, conventional, and focused on the concrete. They tend to avoid the unknown and follow traditional ways.

Openness is strongly related to a person’s interest in art and culture. People who are high in openness tend to enjoy the arts and seek out unusual, complex forms of self-expression. People who are low in openness are often suspicious of the arts and prefer to focus on more practical pursuits.

Your score for openness was high, at 75%.

Because you are high in Openness, you probably consider yourself to be a creative, imaginative person. You are interested in intellectual development and artistic expression. You are adventurous and unconventional.

High Openness scorers are more likely to be politically liberal and to participate in artistic and cultural activities in their leisure time. They tend to be drawn to artistic and scientific careers. High Openness scorers are also more likely to have a high IQ.


Conscientiousness describes a person’s ability to exercise self-discipline and control in order to pursue their goals. High scorers are organized and determined, and are able to forego immediate gratification for the sake of long-term achievement. Low scorers are impulsive and easily sidetracked.

The concept of Conscientiousness focuses on a dilemma we all face: shall I do what feels good now, or instead do what is less fun but will pay off in the future? Some people are more likely to choose fun in the moment, and thus are low in Conscientiousness. Others are more likely to work doggedly toward their goals, and thus are high in this trait.

Your score for conscientiousness was 56%, which is in the moderate range.

Your moderate score in Conscientiousness indicates that you are fairly average in your tendency to respond to impulses. You probably have some long-term goals and are fairly successful in pursuing them, but can be sidetracked sometimes when a particularly attractive diversion presents itself.


Extraversion describes a person’s inclination to seek stimulation from the outside world, especially in the form of attention from other people. Extraverts engage actively with others to earn friendship, admiration, power, status, excitement, and romance. Introverts, on the other hand, conserve their energy, and do not work as hard to earn these social rewards.

Extraversion seems to be related to the emotional payoff that a person gets from achieving a goal. While everyone experiences victories in life, it seems that extroverts are especially thrilled by these victories, especially when they earn the attention of others. Getting a promotion, finding a new romance, or winning an award are all likely to bring an extrovert great joy.

In contrast, introverts do not experience as much of a “high” from social achievements. Thus, they don’t make as much effort to seek them out. Introverts tend to be more content with simple, quiet lives, and rarely seek attention from others.

Your score for Extraversion was moderate, at 50%.

Your mid-range score on this dimension indicates that you are fairly average in your motivation to seek out social rewards. You probably have some desire for admiration, influence, and prestige, but you can also be content when you’re not winning recognition from others.


Agreeableness describes a person’s tendency to put others’ needs ahead of their own, and to cooperate rather than compete with others. People who are high in Agreeableness experience a great deal of empathy and tend to get pleasure out of serving and taking care of others. They are usually trusting and forgiving.

People who are low in Agreeableness tend to experience less empathy and put their own concerns ahead of others. Low scorers are often described as hostile, competitive, and antagonistic. They tend to have more conflictual relationships and often fall out with people.

Your score for Agreeableness was moderate, at 65%.

Your moderate score in Agreeableness indicates that you are fairly typical in the degree to which you balance your own interests with the interests of others. You are probably willing to sacrifice yourself for others some of the time, but you also watch out for yourself quite a bit.


Neuroticism describes a person’s tendency to experience negative emotions, including fear, sadness, anxiety, guilt, and shame. While everyone experiences these emotions from time to time, some people are more prone to them than others.

This trait can be thought of as an alarm system. People experience negative emotions as a sign that something is wrong in the world. You may be in danger, so you feel fear. Or you may have done something morally wrong, so you feel guilty. However, not everyone has the same reaction to a given situation. High Neuroticism scorers are more likely to react to a situation with fear, anger, sadness, and the like. Low Neuroticism scorers are more likely to brush off their misfortune and move on.

Your score for neuroticism was low, at 21%.

Because you are low in Neuroticism, you are less likely than other people to experience negative emotions like fear or sadness. You are probably optimistic, carefree, and self-confident. You rarely worry about how things will turn out.

Low Neuroticism scorers are less likely to get divorced or to suffer mental illness. They tend to handle stress well and take unfortunate events in stride. Major stressors like losing a job or getting a divorce are less likely to cause depression or anxiety in people who have low levels of Neuroticism. In general, low Neuroticism scorers report solid self-esteem and a positive outlook on life.

Pizza trumps flowers

I wanted a garden of flowers, firmly rooted, colorful and fertilized to maintain growth.

Until my previous admiration of cupids lucky lovers ‘just because’ flowers left me bitter.    To further explain, I would not accept it due to a distasteful finding of the now dead flowers sent to a crowned ‘queen’ that was nothing but a one night stand.

To the individual who ordered from New Jersey then sent to my college campus in Florida – you beat the social norm.

In the end, pizza trumps flowers.


The start of a new beginning (college edition)

In the beginning of 2015 I have once again landed myself as an enrolled full time college student. This year is different from the last. In 2014 I have completed 42 credit hours and graduated with my Associates in Science at the age of 20. Starting bright and early tomorrow morning I will be considered a college slave to my studies to complete my Associates in Art. During my experience since the beginning of this year, I have over come many obstacles that spontaneously happen to land in my path. I have learned a handful of lessons in my first six months as a full time student, such as:

  1. As a student and work study  it is not possible to study during work hours
  2. Social media is a major distraction (Deleted all major accounts)
  3. Getting involved with others who do not share the same aspirations is only a distraction
  4. Procrastination is not my friend
  5. Study from the textbook and lecture notes
  6. Always bring a jacket and water to class
  7. Switching back and forth between on a major is normal
  8. Sitting in front of the class is helpful not hurtful
  9. The gym and I will be needing some time apart from each other
  10. Be observant, a phenomenal listener, and think before making decisions. This quote has a lot to do with number 10 – “”Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.” – Plato.”

I have concluded that making simple changes in my daily life will not demolish my foundations of built self esteem and knowledge. These simple changes that have been addressed will be a successful start to my lovely, agonizing, stressful, sleepless, and anxiety filled college term. My school, work, and home schedule for this fall is stuffed like a turkey on Thanksgiving. With handling four classes this term and a part time job, my thought on picking up an additional class might be out of the question. Pssh! Who am I kidding? I am thinking about taking a natural science class as well.

Who knows, maybe I will enroll myself into GER1120 and buy a plane ticket sometime next year.

Reflective questions:

  • What is your current GPA?
  • What class do you enjoy the most?
  • Did you switch and day classes for night? (Do it before drop/add)
  • What are some distractions?


I have not gone to bed yet (it is almost 6am.)
