Posted 25 July 2012 - 10:51 AM #1 Five Factor Personality Model

Today I came across a link to a five-factor personality test and took it for kicks.  This is the model most widely used in academic psychology.  In contrast to the MBTI, it is only interested in describing observable behavior and surface-level thoughts, and does not speculate about underlying thought processes.  As such, its results tend to generate much more subdued reactions.  You may prefer this, or you may like it less.

The test I used is here:
http://www.personal..../ipipneo120.htm

Of course, taking any online test would be incomplete without posting the results here and asking others to do the same.  I like this one more than others I've seen online, because it gives you scores for all the "facets" and not just the five main categories, yet is also relatively short, at "only" 120 questions.

Highlights from my scores:

OPENNESS - 98
All scores in the 80's and 90's, except for Adventurousness at 58.

AGREEABLENESS - 82
Most scores in the 80's, Sympathy high at 99, Cooperation lower at 72... and Trust sitting by itself at 1.

CONSCIENTIOUSNESS - 75
These scores varied the most, from Cautiousness and Dutifulness at 96 and 88 to Self-Discipline at 26.

NEUROTICISM - 44
These scores were mostly in the 30's through 50's.  Depression was highest at 52, Vulnerability lowest at 18.

EXTRAVERSION - 3
These were mostly in the 20's and 30's, except for Excitement-Seeking at 1 and Cheerfulness at... wait for it... zero.  :)

Extraversion 3. Of note, friendliness and assertiveness were fairly high, while the rest were all below 5.

Agreeableness 78. Also all hovering around 80, with trust as the low outlier and sympathy and cooperation as the high outliers. And I'm skeptical about disagreeable people making good scientists. It's a very collaborative field, and it's even more a networking field.

Conscientiousness: 71. Wide-ranging, from orderliness 12 (I know my weaknesses!) to dutifulness and cautiousness at 96.

Neuroticism 37. Self-consciousness spiked to 83, but anger and immoderation were both below ten, with the rest scattered around 40-50.

—Alorael, who was surprised by his agreeableness and the extent to which he was not extroverted. The rest was all as expected. Oh, hey, Slarty. Where does finishing tasks go, and what did you get on that?

Ah, yes, the Big 5 Personality Test or OCEAN test. Much more legitimate, in my eyes, than Myers-Briggs, but also less exciting.

I scored high extraversion across the board. I had average agreeableness, though with really low modesty and morality, high trust and sympathy, and everything else average. I also got average conscientiousness, with self-efficacy and self-discipline being high while dutifulness was low. I'm a little dubious about my self-discipline, but I definitely can buckle down when needed, I suppose. There was a low score on neuroticism, with immoderation being the only high score there. I also got high openness across the board.

This all seems in tune with what I already knew of myself, so it's good to see I have a good handle on my identity.

Alorael: "Self-discipline — what many people call will-power — refers to the ability to persist at difficult or unpleasant tasks until they are completed. People who possess high self-discipline are able to overcome reluctance to begin tasks and stay on track despite distractions. Those with low self-discipline procrastinate and show poor follow-through, often failing to complete tasks-even tasks they want very much to complete."  I received a 26.  Surprising, I know.

Triumph: Probably.  There is now more than Ooc Interference in the way, unfortunately, but I would like to deal with that and get on with the bus story.

— Slarty, who notes that Alorael seems to have given similar answers, despite having apparently taken the Four Factor Test.

How is anyone supposed to answer these questions accurately? Maybe that isn't the point, but even if people could look at themselves objectively enough to answer these somewhat accurately, they're still going to tend to mitigate anything negative.

Of note, I'm worse off than you when it comes to self discipline, Slarty. :p

In the appreciation to art category, I was disappointed to see no questions about music appreciation. Museums with paintings and sculptures are... nice... the first time through so I didn't score big, but skipping the musical aspect of art skewed the results imo. Cuz I do love my music.

I also think the lack of questions about puzzles, riddles, invention and strategic games skews the intellect towards those who like to discuss ideas with other people rather than pondering by oneself.

For example, taking the test as a whole and looking at things over the past 15 odd years led me to wonder about trends in my own life. Depression and Self-Consciousness have markedly increased since high school while Friendliness and Cheerfulness have markedly decreased. Theories as to the cause weigh heavily on marriage and children. Many many underlying things to speculate on here, but ultimately I see an introvert having to share 'alone time' with more and more people who don't necessarily get along with one another. I expect the trend will reverse as I send them off to college and/or their own lives.

This test is surprisingly accurate, although I'm surprised by the high score in adventurousness.  Zero cheerfulness, ninety-nine cautiousness.

Hoo boy.  You think you look like a sociopath?

My personal favorites:

AGREEABLENESS..............1

Trust....................1

Morality.................1

Altruism.................1

Cooperation..............0

Modesty..................0

Dutifulness..............1

Anger....................70

Intellect................91

Liberalism...............75

I think that some of those are pretty close, but I doubt I'm as dramatically Manichean as the test makes me out to be.  I'm not quite sure why they came out as 1's and 0's (I would have guess high single digits or low teens myself), though.  I think part of the problem is that I tend to flanderize my own responses by only picking the "Agree/Disagree strongly" options.  I think I had a grand total of 3 "Neither agree nor disagree" options out of all 120, and I doubt I had many more than thirty or forty "Mildly agree/disagree".
Oh yes, what a useful recommendation for my candidacy.  "Likes to drive dangerous machines, very fast."

I said psychopath, not sociopath, although I can see how that could be more apt.

I, too, was a little surprised at my anger score. I generally get angry at situations rather than people, in which case I tend to use the word "frustrated". But there's a lot to be frustrated with.

I took the test. I think most of it's spot-on, but there's a few areas that made me raise an eyebrow.

EXTRAVERSION...............6 - "Your score on Extraversion is low, indicating you are introverted, reserved, and quiet. You enjoy solitude and solitary activities. Your socializing tends to be restricted to a few close friends."
Click to reveal..
Friendliness.............3 - "Low scorers on Friendliness are not necessarily cold and hostile, but they do not reach out to others and are perceived as distant and reserved."

Gregariousness...........4 - "Low scorers tend to feel overwhelmed by, and therefore actively avoid, large crowds. They do not necessarily dislike being with people sometimes, but their need for privacy and time to themselves is much greater than for individuals who score high on this scale."

Assertiveness............54 - "High scorers Assertiveness like to speak out, take charge, and direct the activities of others. They tend to be leaders in groups. Low scorers tend not to talk much and let others control the activities of groups. Your level of assertiveness is average."

Activity Level...........0 - "People who score low on this scale follow a slower and more leisurely, relaxed pace."

Excitement-Seeking.......26 - "Low scorers are overwhelmed by noise and commotion and are adverse to thrill-seeking."

Cheerfulness.............46 - "This scale measures positive mood and feelings, not negative emotions (which are a part of the Neuroticism domain). Persons who score high on this scale typically experience a range of positive feelings, including happiness, enthusiasm, optimism, and joy. Low scorers are not as prone to such energetic, high spirits. Your level of positive emotions is average."

(These results do not surprise me in the slightest, and feel pretty accurate to me.)

AGREEABLENESS..............28 - "Your score on Agreeableness is low, indicating less concern with others' needs Than with your own. People see you as tough, critical, and uncompromising."
Click to reveal..
Trust....................51 - "A person with high trust assumes that most people are fair, honest, and have good intentions. Persons low in trust see others as selfish, devious, and potentially dangerous. Your level of trust is average."

Morality.................19 - "Low scorers believe that a certain amount of deception in social relationships is necessary. [...] [People] generally find it more difficult to relate to the unstraightforward low-scorers on this scale. It should be made clear that low scorers are not unprincipled or immoral; they are simply more guarded and less willing to openly reveal the whole truth."

Altruism.................5 - "Low scorers on this scale do not particularly like helping those in need. Requests for help feel like an imposition rather than an opportunity for self-fulfillment."

Cooperation..............26 - "Individuals who score high on this scale dislike confrontations. They are perfectly willing to compromise or to deny their own needs in order to get along with others. Those who score low on this scale are more likely to intimidate others to get their way."

Modesty..................74 - "High scorers on this scale do not like to claim that they are better than other people. In some cases this attitude may derive from low self-confidence or self-esteem. Nonetheless, some people with high self-esteem find immodesty unseemly."

Sympathy.................41 - "People who score high on this scale are tenderhearted and compassionate. They feel the pain of others vicariously and are easily moved to pity. Low scorers are not affected strongly by human suffering. They pride themselves on making objective judgments based on reason. They are more concerned with truth and impartial justice than with mercy. Your level of tender-mindedness is average."

(Again, not a lot of surprises. I think Altruism's been tainted by recent events, though; I generally give help when asked and generally don't mind it, but I've been getting volunteered quite a bit without my consent, which tends to grate on my nerves and, as the scale description says, feels like an imposition.)

CONSCIENTIOUSNESS..........6 - "Your score on Conscientiousness is low, indicating you like to live for the moment and do what feels good now. Your work tends to be careless and disorganized."
Click to reveal..
Self-Efficacy............24 - "Low scorers do not feel effective, and may have a sense that they are not in control of their lives."

Orderliness..............3 - "Low scorers tend to be disorganized and scattered."

Dutifulness..............54 - "This scale reflects the strength of a person's sense of duty and obligation. Those who score high on this scale have a strong sense of moral obligation. Low scorers find contracts, rules, and regulations overly confining. They are likely to be seen as unreliable or even irresponsible. Your level of dutifulness is average."

Achievement-Striving.....1 - "Low scorers are content to get by with a minimal amount of work, and might be seen by others as lazy."

Self-Discipline..........9 - "Those with low self-discipline procrastinate and show poor follow-through, often failing to complete tasks-even tasks they want very much to complete."

Cautiousness.............38 - "Cautiousness describes the disposition to think through possibilities before acting. High scorers on the Cautiousness scale take their time when making decisions. Low scorers often say or do first thing that comes to mind without deliberating alternatives and the probable consequences of those alternatives. Your level of cautiousness is average."

(I am content to get by with a 1 in Achievement. tongue )

NEUROTICISM................69 - "Your score on Neuroticism is high, indicating that you are easily upset, even by what most people consider the normal demands of living. People consider you to be sensitive and emotional." (See inside)
Click to reveal..
Anxiety..................93 - "The "fight-or-flight" system of the brain of anxious individuals is too easily and too often engaged. Therefore, people who are high in anxiety often feel like something dangerous is about to happen. They may be afraid of specific situations or be just generally fearful. They feel tense, jittery, and nervous."

Anger....................88 - "Persons who score high in Anger feel enraged when things do not go their way. They are sensitive about being treated fairly and feel resentful and bitter when they feel they are being cheated. This scale measures the tendency to feel angry; whether or not the person expresses annoyance and hostility depends on the individual's level on Agreeableness."

Depression...............30 - "This scale measures the tendency to feel sad, dejected, and discouraged. [...] Low scorers tend to be free from these depressive feelings."

Self-Consciousness.......58 - "Self-conscious individuals are sensitive about what others think of them. Their concern about rejection and ridicule cause them to feel shy and uncomfortable abound others. They are easily embarrassed and often feel ashamed. Their fears that others will criticize or make fun of them are exaggerated and unrealistic, but their awkwardness and discomfort may make these fears a self-fulfilling prophecy. Low scorers, in contrast, do not suffer from the mistaken impression that everyone is watching and judging them. They do not feel nervous in social situations. Your level or self-consciousness is average."

Immoderation.............48 - "Immoderate individuals feel strong cravings and urges that they have have difficulty resisting. They tend to be oriented toward short-term pleasures and rewards rather than long- term consequences. Low scorers do not experience strong, irresistible cravings and consequently do not find themselves tempted to overindulge. Your level of immoderation is average."

Vulnerability............48 - "High scorers on Vulnerability experience panic, confusion, and helplessness when under pressure or stress. Low scorers feel more poised, confident, and clear-thinking when stressed. Your level of vulnerability is average."

(I feel this is mostly accurate, with one MASSIVE exception: Anxiety. I am NOT an anxious person. I think every person I know in real life, and even any person on these forums who know me, can attest that I'm not constantly tense or jittery. I do get nervous occasionally, but it's not like I'm on constant pins and needles, which this test is suggesting. Unfortunately, I think the over-the-top Anxiety score is skewing the whole Neuroticism scale high.)

OPENNESS TO EXPERIENCE.....21 - "Your score on Openness to Experience is low, indicating you like to think in plain and simple terms. Others describe you as down-to-earth, practical, and conservative." (Which is odd when you look at my liberalism score)
Click to reveal..
Imagination..............89 - "To imaginative individuals, the real world is often too plain and ordinary. High scorers on this scale use fantasy as a way of creating a richer, more interesting world."

Artistic Interests.......40 - "High scorers on this scale love beauty, both in art and in nature. They become easily involved and absorbed in artistic and natural events. They are not necessarily artistically trained nor talented, although many will be. The defining features of this scale are interest in, and appreciation of natural and artificial beauty. Low scorers lack aesthetic sensitivity and interest in the arts. Your level of artistic interests is average.

Emotionality.............1 - "Low scorers are less aware of their feelings and tend not to express their emotions openly."

Adventurousness..........19 - "Low scorers tend to feel uncomfortable with change and prefer familiar routines."

Intellect................1 - "Low scorers on Intellect prefer dealing with either people or things rather than ideas. They regard intellectual exercises as a waste of time. Intellect should not be equated with intelligence. Intellect is an intellectual style, not an intellectual ability, although high scorers on Intellect score slightly higher than low-Intellect individuals on standardized intelligence tests."

Liberalism...............79 - "Psychological liberalism refers to a readiness to challenge authority, convention, and traditional values. In its most extreme form, psychological liberalism can even represent outright hostility toward rules, sympathy for law-breakers, and love of ambiguity, chaos, and disorder."

(Intellect's score surprised me; it wasn't until I thought about how I think of religion, the metaphysical and unknowable, and so forth that I realized the score actually makes sense. Other than that, I'm mostly just amused at how my openness score is low and suggesting of conservatism, yet I've got 79 on Liberalism)

I hate to be a killjoy, but this version of the test, while fine for individual contemplation, sucks for comparing answers online. The resulting scores are different depending on which gender plus age class you are in. Sylae's scores not comparable to Iffy's scores are not comparable to Dantius's scores are not... well, you get the point. In some instances, the percentiles are likely to be drastically different (for instance, neuroticism between men and women in the same age group). Unless you know and care what category someone is in, the numbers are mostly meaningless.

Also, with only two options for gender, non-binary folks can't take the test. Or they might, but the results are likely to be inaccurate. Dikiyoba also finds that sucky.

Nope. The country is just to help researchers, but age and sex are an integral and unavoidable part of this verion of the test. Note one of the instructions:

Huh.  Interesting -- that definitely explains some of the variance we've seen: I guess the answers are, in fact, all percentile scores relative to a specific age and gender category.

Well, that's stupid.  Meh.

I saw this topic and thought that Slarty may have returned. Nevertheless, I took the test again to see what changed.

My sense of extraversion has remained high, but my agreeableness has dipped to being low instead of average. I think this is a result of my sympathy waning; I'm still very trusting, however. Cooperation is high, but everything else is low. For conscientiousness, there was no change. Neuroticism is now average, which I attribute to a stressful year at college rather than my more relaxed time last summer. Immoderation remains high, but my anxiety and depression scores have both creeped up a little. Openness stayed high, though I'm decidedly less open to emotionality than I previously scored. I think this may be because I don't care too much about what others are feeling, though, rather than any change in my attitude towards my own emotions.

I always fear that I do not accurately answer these tests.  Maybe I just confused the poor test algorithm.

I feel it's generally accurate, apart from higher Neuroticism than what I'd think.

My results.

In less quantified terms, I'd sum it up as "Chaotic-Good / Fluttershy".

I am agreeable, friendly, outgoing and trusting, but apparently I score zero on the morality scale--interesting. But that sounds about right. I usually get what i want by using any means neccessary. It just so happens that what I want to is top make myself and others happy most of the time.
