My Big Five Results

I just took the High 5 Personality Test in the Out of Service.com. Well the test are somewhat accurate based on the personality that I have. You might want to try it.

What aspects of personality does this tell me about?

There has been much research on how people describe others, and five major dimensions of human personality have been found. They are often referred to as the OCEAN model of personality, because of the acronym from the names of the five dimensions.  

Openness to Experience/Intellect

"You typically don't seek out new experiences. (Your percentile: 59)"

High scorers tend to be original, creative, curious, complex;
Low scorers tend to be conventional, down to earth, narrow interests, uncreative.


"You probably have a messy desk! (Your percentile: 17)"

High scorers tend to be reliable, well-organized, self-disciplined, careful;
Low scorers tend to be disorganized, undependable, negligent.


"You are relatively social and enjoy the company of others. (Your percentile: 64)"

High scorers tend to be sociable, friendly, fun loving, talkative;
Low scorers tend to be introverted, reserved, inhibited, quiet.


"You find it easy to express irritation with others. (Your percentile: 27) "

High scorers tend to be good natured, sympathetic, forgiving, courteous;
Low scorers tend to be critical, rude, harsh, callous.


"You are generally relaxed. (Your percentile: 22)"

High scorers tend to be nervous, high-strung, insecure, worrying;
Low scorers tend to be calm, relaxed, secure, hardy.

What do the scores tell me?

In order to provide you with a meaningful comparison, the scores you received have been converted to "percentile scores." This means that your personality score can be directly compared to another group of people who have also taken this personality test.

The percentile scores show you where you score on the five personality dimensions relative to the comparison sample of other people who have taken this test on-line. In other words, your percentile scores indicate the percentage of people who score less than you on each dimension. For example, your Extraversion percentile score is 64, which means that about 64 percent of the people in our comparison sample are less extraverted than you -- in other words, you are rather extroverted. Keep in mind that these percentile scores are relative to our particular sample of people. Thus, your percentile scores may differ if you were compared to another sample (e.g., elderly British people).
