The Big Five Aspects Scale

You have just completed assessing yourself with 100 phrases. Our systems have compared your-self-ratings to those of thousands of other people. You are being compared to men and women of all ages. This means that if you are young, your scores on neuroticism will be higher and on agreeableness and conscientiousness will be lower than if you were compared to people of your own age (with the reverse being true for older individuals). For men, their scores on agreeableness will be higher and on neuroticism will be lower than if they were just being compared to men. We decided to make the comparisons simple, so that you know where you stand in comparison to the typical person (with age and sex regarded as irrelevant).

Here are your results: You will see below where you stand in comparison to others in the general population on the major traits and their aspects:

  • Agreeableness: Compassion and Politeness
  • Conscientiousness: Industriousness and Orderliness
  • Extraversion: Enthusiasm and Assertiveness
  • Neuroticism: Withdrawal and Volatility
  • Openness to Experience: Openness and Intellect

Remember that each personality trait and aspect (and your relative position with respect to them) has advantages and disadvantages. It is for that reason that variation exists in the human population: there is a niche for each personality configuration. Much of what constitutes success in life is therefore the consequence of finding the place in relationships, work and personal commitment that corresponds to your unique personality structure. Good luck with your expanded self-understanding!

Note also that if you find that the descriptions harsher than you might consider appropriate this may mean that you were more self-critical than necessary when completing the questions (remember, the results are based on your own self-report, compared to that of others). This can occur if you were feeling temporarily or chronically unhappy or anxious, or hungry, angry or judgmental when you completed the questions.

 

Agreeableness: Moderately Low

You are moderately low in agreeableness, which is the primary dimension of Interpersonal interaction in the Big Five personality trait scientific model. Agreeableness has two aspects: compassion and politeness, which will be explained separately. Agreeableness is a very complex trait, with marked positive and negative elements all along its distribution. Because of this, higher scores and lower scores need to be explained at the same time.

People high in agreeableness are nice: compliant, nurturing, kind, naively trusting and conciliatory. However, because of their tendency to avoid conflict, they often dissemble and hide what they think. People low in agreeableness are not so nice: stubborn, dominant, harsh, skeptical, competitive and, in the extreme, even predatory. However, they tend to be straightforward, even blunt, so you know where they stand.

Your score puts you at the 35th percentile for agreeableness. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be less agreeable than 64 of them and more agreeable than 35 of them.

AGREEABLENESS
 
 

35th percentile

 
 
 
 

People with moderately low levels of agreeableness are seen by others as somewhat competitive, colder and less empathic. They are less likely to look for the best in others, and are not particularly tolerant (an attitude that is much valued by agreeable people). They are less concerned about the emotional state of others, willing to engage in conflict, and will sacrifice peace and harmony to make a point or (if conscientious) to get things done. People find them straightforward, even blunt. They tend towards dominance, rather than submission (particularly if also below average in neuroticism).

People with moderately low levels of agreeableness are not particularly forgiving, accepting, flexible, gentle or patient. They don’t easily feel pity for those who are excluded, punished or defeated. They are also not easily taken advantage of by disagreeable, manipulative or otherwise troublesome people, or by those with criminal or predatory intent. Their skepticism plays a protective role, although it may interfere with their ability to cooperate with or trust others whose intentions are genuinely good. They can appreciate cooperation, but like competition, with its clear losers and winners. They will not easily lose arguments (or avoid discussions) with less agreeable people. They tend to be good at bargaining for themselves, or at negotiating for more recognition or power. They are likely to have higher salaries and to earn more money, in consequence. They are therefore less likely to suffer from resentment or to harbour invisible anger, although this tendency may be increased, if they are very high in neuroticism. In addition, because of their tendency to engage in conflict, when necessary, moderately disagreeable people tend not to sacrifice medium- to long-term stability and function for the sake of short-term peace. This means that problems that should be solved in the present are often solved, and do not accumulate counterproductively across time.

Women are higher in agreeableness than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 61.5. For men it is 38.5. The fact that men are lower in agreeableness than women helps explain their much higher rates of criminal incarceration (90% male). The primary difference between criminals and non-criminals is disagreeableness. If the typical criminal is more disagreeable than 98% of people in the general population, then almost all those criminals will be male. This difference in agreeableness between men and women is largest in countries such as Norway and Sweden, where the most has been done to ensure equality of outcome between the sexes. This provides strong evidence that biological factors rather than environment and learning account for the dissimilarity.

Agreeableness, per se, is not strongly associated with political liberalism or conservatism, but this is because the aspects of agreeableness predict such political belief in opposite ways, and cancel each other out. Liberals are higher in aspect compassion, and conservatives in aspect politeness. However, alliance with the category of belief that has come to be known as politically correct is strongly predicted by agreeableness (particularly compassion). What this appears to mean is that agreeable people strongly identify with those they deem oppressed, seeing them, essentially, as exploited infants, and demonize those they see as oppressors, seeing them as cruel, heartless predators.

There are large differences between men and women in terms of spontaneous interest, and these also appear associated with agreeableness. Agreeable people, caring as they do for others, are more likely to enter professions associated with people, such as teaching and nursing, which are dominated by women. This is true even in the Scandinavian countries, where attempts to produce gender-equal societies has reached a maximum. Disagreeable people, by contrast, appear to prefer systematizing over empathizing, and are more interested in things – machines and technology. In consequence, professions such as engineering and trades associated with construction and machinery tend to be dominated by relatively disagreeable men.

Agreeableness has two aspects: compassion and politeness.

 

Compassion: Very High

You are very high in compassion, which is one aspect of Agreeableness. Your score puts you at the 91st percentile for compassion. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be more compassionate than 91 of them and less compassionate than 8 of them.

Very compassionate people are primarily interested in the problems of other people, and other living things. They are strikingly concerned about helping other people avoid negative emotion. They constantly make time and do kind things for other, even when doing so interferes with fulfilling their own needs and interests. They have a very soft side. Other people consider them sympathetic and nice, and will turn to them remarkably often for a listening ear. They are very empathetic and caring. However, because they are so other-oriented, they find it remarkably difficult to negotiate on their own behalf, and may not get what they deserve (for their hard work, for example). This can lead to intense resentment.

 COMPASSION
 
 

91st percentile

 
 
 
 

Those who are liberal, politically, score somewhat higher in compassion than conservatives.

Women are also higher in compassion than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 61. For men it is 39.

 

Politeness: Exceptionally Low

You are exceptionally low in politeness, which is one aspect of Agreeableness. Your score puts you at the 1st percentile for politeness. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be less polite than 98 of them and more polite than 1 of them.

People who are exceptionally low in politeness challenge and confront authority – and they are not obedient. If they are respectful, it is grudgingly, and will only be manifested toward people who continually both deserve and demand it. They are comfortable confronting other people, and enjoy it. People extremely low in politeness are motivated to engage in conflict, and to seek out confrontation. They may have a strong tendency toward conduct-disordered, antisocial, delinquent, even criminal behavior, particularly if male and adolescent. They may find themselves very frequently in trouble with authority, in consequence. Their skepticism can make it extremely difficult for them to find a place in the middle or lower in hierarchies of power and dominance. They are hyper-dominant, rather than submissive (particularly if they are also low in neuroticism).

 POLITENESS
 
 

1st percentile

 
 
 
 

Those who are liberal, politically, score somewhat lower in politeness than conservatives (the opposite pattern is seen with compassion).

Women are higher in politeness than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 59. For men it is 41.

 

Conscientiousness: Typical or Average

You are typical or average in conscientiousness, which is the primary dimension of dutiful achievement in the Big Five personality trait scientific model. Conscientiousness is a measure of obligation, attention to detail, hard work, persistence, cleanliness, efficiency and adherence to rules, standards and processes. Conscientious people implement their plans and establish and maintain order.

Your score puts you at the 49th percentile for conscientiousness. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be more conscientious than 49 of them and less conscientious than 50 of them.

People of average conscientious levels generally do their duty, although they are not sloggers. They are reliable, but waste some of their time and have some proclivity to procrastinate (particularly if they are also above average in neuroticism). Most of the time, however, a person of average conscientiousness will deliver what he or she promises, and usually close to or on time and schedule. They are reasonably decisive, neat, organized, future-oriented, and reliable. They can maintain focus, but have some trouble fighting off distraction.

CONSCIENTIOUSNESS
 
 

49th percentile

 
 
 
 

Typically conscientious people tend to obtain more moderate grades in academic settings (unless they are also highly intelligent). They make reasonably competent administrators and managers. Their performance in such situations would be improved by more diligence and focus, and through the use of careful scheduling. They mildly prefer to have everything in its proper place, but are by no means obsessed with detail.

Typically conscientious people are not particularly prone to guilt (although they may let things slide to the point where they have something to feel guilty about), and they are relatively free of shame, self-disgust and self-contempt.

Individuals who are typically conscientious do not react too negatively to failure. They can let themselves off the hook, and tend not to be too judgmental about their own faults, or those of others. They will suffer some shame and guilt when unemployed or otherwise unoccupied, particularly when that occurs through no fault of their own. People of average conscientiousness are reasonably committed to personal responsibility, but also believe that there is more to life than diligence, orderliness and duty. They think that those who work hard should and usually will be rewarded, but also note that luck and chance play their role. They are not excessively preoccupied with hygiene, moral purity or achievement, and are unlikely to be micro-managers or over-controlling.

People with typical levels of conscientiousness are no more likely to be political conservatives or liberals (although they will tilt towards the former if low in openness and the latter if high).

Women are very slightly more conscientious than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 51.5. For men it is 49.5.

Conscientiousness has two aspects: industriousness and orderliness.

 

Industriousness: Typical or Average

You are typical or average in industriousness, which is one aspect of conscientiousness. Your score puts you at the 56th percentile for industriousness. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be more industrious than 56 of them and less industrious than 43 of them.

People of average industriousness are somewhat likely to be successful in school and in administrative and managerial positions (particularly if they are intelligent). They do not live to work, however, and do not always have to be doing something useful. They like their leisure time. Typically, they will do their duty, but they can put things off, and sometimes mess them up. Usually, but not always, they finish what they start, and they do it more or less on schedule, with some exceptions. They are no more concerned than average with efficiency or savings. They can focus on the task on hand, when there are high levels of motivation or pressure, but often find themselves distracted by something more entertaining, or interesting, or worrisome.

INDUSTRIOUSNESS
 
 

56th percentile

 
 
 
 

People of average industriousness are not particularly judgemental to themselves or others. They like to live and let live. They are somewhat likely to believe that people fail because they don’t apply themselves or work hard enough, but know that other considerations play a role. They tend to feel guilty, but not to an overwhelming degree, if they do not do their duty. They can, however, find themselves in a guilty position because they failed to perform a task on time or properly.

Those who are liberal and those who are conservatives appear equally industrious.

Men are slightly more industrious than women. The mean percentile for men in a general population (women and men) is 51.5. For women it is 49.5.

 

Orderliness: Typical or Average

You are average or typical in orderliness, which is one aspect of conscientiousness. Your score puts you at the 41st percentile for orderliness. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be more orderly than 41 of them and less orderly than 58 of them.

Typically orderly people are neither particularly disturbed nor disgusted by mess and chaos. They keep everything moderately tidy and organized. They don’t think in terms of simple black and white; in their world, there are many shades of grey. They don’t rely overmuch on schedules, lists or routines, preferring to take things as they come. They are not overly oriented toward detail, rigidly rule-abiding or judgemental.

ORDERLINESS
 
 

41st percentile

 
 
 
 

They like routine and predictability, under some circumstances, but don’t mind if such things are disrupted. They can manage complex, sensitive processes when supervised properly and carefully, but may have to be reminded to pay proper attention and maintain focus. They can, however, tolerate the mess, disruption and intervening periods of chaos that may accompany creative endeavor.

Those who are average in orderliness are no more likely to be political conservatives or liberals, although they will tend toward the former, if low in openness to experience and the latter if high.

Women are more orderly than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 54.5. For men it is 45.5. This may account for some of the trouble in relation to housework between women and men. Since women are, on average, more orderly, household disorder will trigger disgust and discomfort in them faster. This may happen with sufficient frequency so they end up doing a disproportionate share of such work (even though if they waited a bit longer their less orderly partners, often men, might end up equally troubled and motivated to fix the problem). Orderly people are more likely to have items such as event calendars, drawer organizers, laundry baskets, irons and ironing boards in their immediate environments.

 

Extraversion: Exceptionally High

You are exceptionally high in extraversion, which is the primary dimension of positive emotion in the Big Five personality trait scientific model. Extraversion is a measure of general sensitivity to positive emotions such as hope, joy, anticipation and approach, particularly in social situations.

Your score puts you at the 98th percentile for extraversion. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be more extraverted than 98 of them and less extraverted than 1 of them.

People with exceptionally high levels of extraversion are extremely enthusiastic, talkative, assertive in social situations, and gregarious. They are unusually energized by social contact, and crave it. They take exceptional pleasure in planning parties, telling jokes, making people laugh, and taking part in community activities. They are extremely likely to have positive memories of the past, high levels of current self-esteem (particularly if they are low in neuroticism), and tremendous optimism about the future.

 EXTRAVERSION
 
 

98th percentile

 
 
 
 

People who are exceptionally extraverted have a remarkably difficult time keeping things to themselves, and tend to tell everyone everything. They are exceptionally self-disclosing (particularly if also high in neuroticism) and they warm up very quickly to other people. They speak first and most often in meetings. They can be extremely captivating and convincing. They will be the first to act exceptionally often.

People who are exceptionally high in extraversion make very enthusiastic employees, and are exceptionally well-suited to jobs involving sales, persuasion, work in groups and public speaking (particularly, once again, if they are low in neuroticism). Conversely, they are very badly suited to occupations that require a lot of isolated work (such as computer programming or accounting).

People exceptionally high in extraversion can also be exceedingly impulsive, particularly when it comes to having fun in social situations. They are exceptionally likely to sacrifice the future to the present, when something social or group-oriented beckons. It is hard for them to be alone and to study and work. They can be exceptionally easily distracted by opportunities to chat, joke and socialize. This is particularly the case if they are also low in conscientiousness. When individuals are extraverted and conscientious, they are more productive than if they are introverted and conscientious. However, when they are introverted and unconscientious, they are more productive than they are when they are extroverted and unconscientious.

People exceptionally high in extraversion can be extremely dominant in social situations, particularly if they are also low in agreeableness. Less agreeable extraverts tend to be self-centered – something that can be made worse if they are also low in conscientiousness.

Those who are politically liberal are slightly less extraverted than conservatives.

Women are slightly more extraverted than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 52. For men it is 48.

Extraversion has two aspects: Enthusiasm and Assertiveness.

 

Enthusiasm: Very High

You are exceptionally high in enthusiasm, which is one aspect of extraversion. Your score puts you at the 92nd percentile for enthusiasm. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be more enthusiastic than 92 of them and less enthusiastic than 7 of them.

Individuals who are very high in enthusiasm are uncommonly excitable, happy and easy to get to know. They will talk very rapidly about everything, particularly other people. They laugh or giggle frequently. They must be around people almost all the time, and they love parties. They cannot keep people at a distance, and keep nothing private. They are very positive and optimistic. They warm up very quickly to other people. They love – and crave – stimulation, excitement, activity and fun. Enthusiastic people are gregarious, encouraging and people-loving, and they are strikingly positive about what might happen next.

 ENTHUSIASM
 
 

92nd percentile

 
 
 
 

Enthusiasm is not strongly associated with political preference, either conservative or liberal.

Women are higher in enthusiasm than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 55. For men it is 45.

 

Assertiveness: Exceptionally High

You are exceptionally high in assertiveness, which is one aspect of extraversion. Your score puts you at the 98th percentile for assertiveness. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be more assertive than 98 of them and less assertive than 1 of them.

Exceptionally assertive people are “take charge” types. They put their own opinions forward extremely strongly, and constantly dominate and control social situations. Exceptionally assertive people can be extremely influential and captivating. They have the communication style that is often associated with leadership. This is good when they are knowledgeable, competent and able, but not so good when they aren’t. Assertive people are people of action. They don’t wait for others to lead the way, but leap in, heedlessly. They can be impulsive, in consequence, and can act without thinking.

 ASSERTIVENESS
 
 

98th percentile

 
 
 
 

Liberals tend to be slightly less assertive than conservatives.

Women are slightly less assertive than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 48. For men it is 52.

 

Neuroticism: Very Low

You are very low in neuroticism, which is the primary dimension of negative emotion in the Big Five personality trait scientific model. Neuroticism is a measure of general sensitivity to negative emotions such as pain, sadness, irritable or defensive anger, fear and anxiety.

Your score puts you at the 7th percentile for neuroticism. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be lower in neuroticism than 92 of them and higher in neuroticism than 7 of them.

People with very low levels of neuroticism almost never focus on the negative elements, anxieties and uncertainties of the past, present and future. It is very rare for them to face periods of time where they are unhappy, anxious and irritable, unless facing a serious, sustained, complex problem. Even under the latter conditions, they cope very well, don’t worry, and recover quickly. They’re very good at keeping their head in a storm, and they almost never make mountains out of molehills.

 NEUROTICISM
 
 

7th percentile

 
 
 
 

They have very much higher levels of self-esteem, particularly when they are also average or above average in extraversion. They are at much lower risk for developing anxiety disorders and depression (again, particularly if average or above in extraversion).

When good things happen to them, people with very low levels of neuroticism can appreciate it, without questioning whether or not they deserved it. They are unusually satisfied with their relationships and careers. Overall, they are very tolerant of stress, and can much more easily accept failure and setbacks as part of life. Very low levels of neuroticism are associated with markedly decreased concern about mental and physical health, far fewer physician and emergency room visits, and very infrequent absenteeism at work and at school (particularly if accompanied by average or above levels of conscientiousness).

People with very low levels of neuroticism can handle risk strikingly better. If they are average or high in extraversion or openness, they may even enjoy it. They are simply far less affected by uncertainty. They can much more easily handle recreational, career, financial and social situations where the possibility of loss is higher. They can consider and implement career changes and other transformations that could enhance their lives very easily.

Neuroticism is not a powerful predictor of political belief, either conservative or liberal.

Females tend to be higher in neuroticism than males. The typical woman is higher in neuroticism than 60% of the general population of men and women combined. In part, this may be why women report more unhappiness in their relationships, at work, in school and with their health than men, on average, and why women initiate 70% of all divorces. This difference in neuroticism between men and women appears to emerge at puberty. It is largest in countries such as Norway and Sweden, where the most has been done to ensure equality of outcome between the sexes. This provides strong evidence that biological factors rather than environment and learning account for the dissimilarity.

Trait neuroticism is made up of the aspects withdrawal and volatility.

 

Withdrawal: Exceptionally Low

You are exceptionally low in withdrawal, which is one aspect of neuroticism. Your score puts you at the 1st percentile for withdrawal. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be lower in withdrawal than 98 of them and higher in withdrawal than 1 of them.

Individuals exceptionally low in withdrawal virtually never suffer from or are impeded by anticipatory anxiety. They can handle new, uncertain, unexpected, threatening or complex situations extremely well, from the emotional perspective. They are extremely unlikely to avoid or withdraw in the face of the unknown and unexpected.

People with exceptionally low levels of withdrawal feel sad, lonesome, disappointed and grief-stricken very infrequently – and, if they do, feel those emotions briefly and to a much lesser degree. Their lives tend to be markedly free of doubt, worry, embarrassment, self-consciousness and discouragement, even in the face of genuine threat and punishment. They are resistant to and rarely worried about social rejection, and almost never feel hurt or threatened. Even when actually hurt, frightened, or anxious, they recover strikingly easily and remarkably quickly. People with very low levels of withdrawal are simply not worriers. Technically, withdrawal has been associated with activity in the brain systems that regulate passive avoidance.

 WITHDRAWAL
 
 

1st percentile

 
 
 
 

Those who are liberal, politically, are slightly higher in withdrawal than conservatives.

Women are higher in withdrawal than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 60. For men it is 40.

 

Volatility: Moderately Low

You are moderately low in volatility, which is one aspect of neuroticism. Your score puts you at the 38th percentile for volatility. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be less volatile than 61 of them and more volatile than 38 of them.

Individuals moderately low in volatility tend to not to vary much in their mood. They are not particularly irritable, and feel lower levels of disappointment, frustration, pain and social isolation. People find them easy to be around. They express their frustration, disappointment and irritability quite reasonably and not very often. Even when stirred up and upset or angry or irritated, they calm down quickly. They are less argumentative than average and rarely lose their composure.

If overly provoked in a dispute, a person of average volatility may react in kind (particularly if also low in agreeableness). However, such people tend to remain calm and unperturbed, even when stressed. Volatile people tend to get upset if something bad does happen, while people high in withdrawal (the other aspect of neuroticism) tend to be concerned that something bad might happen. Technically, volatility has been associated with activity in the brain systems that regulate fight, flight or freeze.

VOLATILITY
 
 

38th percentile

 
 
 
 

Volatility is not strongly related to political preference, either liberal or conservative.

Women are higher in volatility than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 57.5. For men it is 42.5.

 

Openness to Experience: Very High

You are very high in openness to experience, which is the primary dimension of creativity, artistic interest and intelligence (particularly verbal intelligence) in the Big Five personality trait scientific model. Openness to experience is a measure of interest in novelty, art, literature, abstract thinking, philosophy as well as sensitivity to aesthetic emotions and beauty.

Your score puts you at the 91st percentile for openness to experience. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be higher in openness to experience than 91 of them and lower in openness to experience than 8 of them.

People with very high levels of openness to experience are extremely likely to be characterized by others as uncommonly smart, creative, exploratory, intelligent and visionary. They are strikingly interested in learning, and are constantly acquiring new abilities and skills. They are very curious and exploratory. They are very interested in abstract thinking, philosophy, and the meaning of belief systems and ideologies. They will seek out cultural events such as movies, concerts, dance recitals, plays, poetry readings, gallery openings and art shows. They are unusually likely to enjoy writing (or even to be driven to write). They enjoy complex, abstract ideas and love to confront and solve complex, abstract and multi-dimensional problems.

 OPENNESS TO EXPERIENCE
 
 

91st percentile

 
 
 
 

They are uncommonly likely to be prolific readers, with an unusually wide range of interests. They have an uncommonly broad and deep vocabulary. They can think and learn with striking speed. They are frequently proficient at formulating new ideas, and very strongly tend to be articulate (particularly if average or above in extraversion). People very high in openness can see old things in strikingly new ways. They can formulate any single problem in an uncommonly diverse range of ways, and can generate an atypically large number of problem-solving solutions. They will continually seek change, often to make things better, but also just for the sake of change.

People who are very high in openness to experience are not well adapted to and do not do well in situations or occupations that are routinized and predictable. They do not fit in at all well at the bottom of hierarchies. They are uncommonly ill-suited to entry-level, repetitive, rote positions, because they are always thinking up new ways to do things, and such ideas are seldom welcome from someone at the bottom. They are very radical thinkers. They shake things up, particularly if they are also disagreeable and assertive. They are more likely to be revolutionary rebels (particularly if average or below in conscientiousness).

Individuals very high in openness to experience are entrepreneurial in spirit, as well as smart and creative. They have very much higher than average interest in creating new ventures, sometimes for profit, sometimes for curiosity, and sometimes for personal transformation. Very high levels of openness to experience appear necessary to the formation and leadership of business and other forms of complex organization, although conscientiousness appears required for the attention to detail and process management that such organizations also always need.

Because people who are very high in openness to experience tend to be interested in everything, this can make it hard for them to settle on a single path in life, to specialize to a necessary degree, and to create an integrated identity. This is particularly dangerous if they are high in neuroticism and/or low in conscientiousness. People characterized by the combination of high openness to experience and high neuroticism continually undermine their own convictions and beliefs by incessant questioning and make themselves lost and anxious. Open, unconscientious people tend to be “under-achievers” (particularly if also above average in neuroticism). Such people appear to have the capability to succeed, can learn quickly, and are creative, but they seldom implement their ideas.

Openness to experience is the dimension that best predicts political allegiance (with conscientiousness, particularly the aspect of orderliness, coming in at second place). Those who are liberal, politically, are very much more likely to be high in openness to experience than conservatives.

Women and men differ very little in openness to experience at the trait level, although there are differences in the aspect levels.

Trait openness to experience is made up of the aspects of intellect and openness.

 

Intellect: High

Note: Do not confuse the personality aspect of Intellect with IQ. Intellect is a measure of interest in abstract ideas, essentially, while IQ is a measure of processing speed, verbal ability, working memory, and problem solving capacity, and is better measured with a formal IQ test. It is perfectly possible to have a high IQ and a low score on the personality trait of Intellect (or the reverse).

You are high in intellect, which is one aspect of openness to experience. Your score puts you at the 86th percentile for intellect. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be higher in intellect than 86 of them and lower in intellect than 13 of them.

People high in intellect are quite interested in ideas and abstract concepts. They enjoy being confronted with novel information, even when it is complex. They are substantially more curious and exploratory than average, and frequently like to tackle and solve problems. They will actively engage in and seek out and initiate issue-oriented discussions, and are likely to read, think about and want to discuss idea-centered books (most frequently non-fiction). They are generally articulate and can formulate ideas clearly and quickly (particularly if average or higher in extraversion). They have a wide vocabulary, and actively enjoy learning new things. People high in intellect will often find and generate novel, creative concepts and voluntarily search for and adapt well to new experience and situations.

 INTELLECT
 
 

86th percentile

 
 
 
 

People high in intellect find complex, rapidly changing occupations to their liking and will generally do well at them (particularly if they are also high in conscientiousness and low in neuroticism). However, they are substantially less well-suited to stable, straightforward and more traditional occupations, where the rules don't change, and will experience frequent periods of boredom and frustration in such positions.

Liberals are higher in intellect than conservatives (although the biggest difference between the two is openness to experience at the trait level).

Women are lower than men in intellect (although not in IQ). This is probably a difference in interest: people high in intellect, compared to openness, are more likely to prefer the sciences to the arts. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 45. For men it is 55.

 

Openness: High

You are high in openness, which is one aspect of openness to experience. Your score puts you at the 87th percentile for openness. If you were one of 100 people in a room, you would be higher in openness than 87 of them and lower in openness than 12 of them.

The closest synonym for openness (rather than openness to experience, which encompasses openness and intellect) is creativity. Highly open, creative people love beauty. They need an outlet for their creative ability, or they have difficulty thriving. They want to be surrounded by art or beautiful crafts. They are sensitive to color and architectural form. They like to collect things. They are imaginative, and like to daydream and reflect on things. They are affected comparatively deeply by music, often of many genres, and may be musical or artistic themselves (both of these are rare in the general population). They can get thoroughly immersed in a book, or a movie, or in their own thoughts, and become somewhat oblivious to the outside world. They respond strongly to beauty, creativity and art.

 OPENNESS
 
 

87th percentile

 
 
 
 

Highly open, creative people can be impractical and flighty, however (particularly if low in conscientiousness). It can be extremely difficult to transform creativity into money, or into a career. High levels of openness are, furthermore, necessary for entrepreneurial success, and often prove useful at the top of hierarchies, even in very conservative occupations such as banking, accounting and law, which need creative people in leadership positions to provide new vision and direction.

Liberals are higher in openness than conservatives (although the biggest difference between the two is openness to experience, at the trait level).

Women are higher in openness than men. The mean percentile for women in a general population (women and men) is 56.5. For men it is 44.5.

I don't consider my industriousness to be average, when I was a kid I was super into academics, extracurricular activities, sports, was always outside, etc. Being an entrepreneur takes a fuck ton out of you. Lol. But shit's on its way back ;)

I am thinking

I just started training. Too bad I cannot take this personality test twice. Otherwise, it would be interesting to see how my personality traits change through the training.
