Trait Explanations

In order to interpret your raw trait scores, they were compared to the first 350,000 people to complete the full MyPersonality Big Five questionnaire. This allows the way that you described yourself to be put in the context of how other people respond to the questionnaire. You should remember that there are no fundamentally good or bad personalities, as each trait description has potential advantages and disadvantages.

To interpret your facet scores for the Big Five: Comprehensive questionnaire, your scores were compared to a smaller group of 800 people who answered the questions in order to help us develop the test. You should therefore currently consider these results as provisional until the sample size is increased. Your results will automatically be updated as we get more respondents.

Jungian Typology Estimate

Research has found that the Big Five personality traits are significantly related to Jungian Typology (e.g. the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator). This is a popular alternative personality framework regularly used for personal development, in which Types are used rather than Traits. Based on your Big Five trait scores, your estimated Type is shown below.

ENTP

Extraverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving

ENTPs are frequently described as clever, cerebrally and verbally quick, enthusiastic, outgoing, innovative, and resourceful. ENTPs are motivated by a desire to understand and improve the world they live in. They are usually accurate in sizing up a situation. They may have a perverse sense of humor and sometimes play devil's advocate, which can create misunderstandings with friends, coworkers, and family. ENTPs are ingenious and adept at directing relationships between means and ends. ENTPs 'think outside the box,' devising fresh, unexpected solutions to difficult problems. However, they are less interested in generating and following through with detailed plans than in generating ideas and possibilities. ENTPs are quick to see complex interrelationships between people, things, and ideas. These interrelationships are analyzed in profound detail. The result is an in-depth understanding of the way things and relationships work, and how they can be improved.

My Star Sign Personality?

You do not have a Taurus personality...

The Taurus personality is described on the one hand as hating change, but on the other hand they have artistic pursuits, especially singing and sculpture. Overall this still suggests a slightly above-average openness trait score. However, your openness trait score is even higher than the Taurus personality predicts.

It is also described as dependable, thorough, responsible, and that it "strives to create tomorrow in advance rather than leave it to fate", which suggests a very high conscientiousness trait score. however, your conscientiousness trait score is actually below-average.

The Taurus personality on the one hand is withdrawn and "likes to switch off to gather inner reserves to deal withoutside pressures", but on the other hand they have a reputation for being socialisers. This still suggests a below-average extraversion trait score in total. You are actually more outgoing than the average.

The Taurus personality "will let others get close but only so close as they want them", suggesting an average agreeableness trait score, however, your agreeableness trait score is actually significantly below the average.

It is also earthy, calm and collected, suggesting a below-average emotional stability score. However, your very low neuroticism trait score suggests you are even more stable than the Taurus personality predicts.

Overall therefore, your star sign has accurately predicted 0 out of 5 traits, which means that you are nothing like a Taurus!

Satisfaction With Life Scale

Your result on the scale was compared to the score definitions set out by the test in order to determine your feedback.

25 - 29 High score; very satisfied

Individuals who score in this range like their lives and feel that things are going well. Of course their lives are not perfect, but they feel that things are mostly good. Furthermore, just because the person is satisfied does not mean she or he is complacent. In fact, growth and challenge might be part of the reason the respondent is satisfied. For most people in this high-scoring range, life is enjoyable, and the major domains of life are going well - work or school, family, friends, leisure, and personal development. The person may draw motivation from the areas of dissatisfaction.

Openness

Openness to Experience describes a dimension of personality that distinguishes imaginative, creative people from down-to-earth, conventional people.

Conscientiousness

Conscientiousness concerns the way in which we control, regulate, and direct our impulses. It distinguishes flexible but sometimes disorganised people from more organised but sometimes perfectionist or pedantic people.

Extraversion

Extraversion (also extroversion) is marked by pronounced engagement with the external world, versus being comfortable with your own company.

Agreeableness

Agreeableness reflects individual differences in concern with cooperation and social harmony. It distinguishes people who prefer competition versus those who prefer co-operation.

Neuroticism

Neuroticism, also known inversely as Emotional Stability, refers to the tendency to experience negative emotions. It distinguishes people who generally feel relaxed but at extremes be described as "emotionally flat" from those who are more in touch with their emotions but consequently sometimes feel stressed and anxious.

Extraversion vs. Introversion

People with a preference for Extraversion draw energy from action: they tend to act, then reflect, then act further. If they are inactive, their level of energy and motivation tends to decline. Conversely, those whose preference is Introversion become less energized as they act: they prefer to reflect, then act, then reflect again. People with Introversion preferences need time out to reflect in order to rebuild energy. The Introvert's flow is directed inward toward concepts and ideas and the Extravert's is directed outward towards people and objects. There are several contrasting characteristics between Extraverts and Introverts: Extraverts desire breadth and are action-oriented, while introverts seek depth and are thought-oriented.

Intuition vs. Sensing

Sensing and iNtuition are the information-gathering (Perceiving) functions. They describe how new information is understood and interpreted. Individuals who prefer Sensing are more likely to trust information that is in the present, tangible and concrete: that is, information that can be understood by the five senses. They tend to distrust hunches that seem to come out of nowhere. They prefer to look for details and facts. For them, the meaning is in the data. On the other hand, those who prefer iNtuition tend to trust information that is more abstract or theoretical, that can be associated with other information (either remembered or discovered by seeking a wider context or pattern). They may be more interested in future possibilities. They tend to trust those flashes of insight that seem to bubble up from the unconscious mind. The meaning is in how the data relates to the pattern or theory.

Thinking vs. Feeling

hinking and Feeling are the decision-making (Judging) functions. The Thinking and Feeling functions are both used to make rational decisions, based on the data received from their information-gathering functions (Sensing or iNtuition). Those who prefer Feeling tend to come to decisions by associating or empathizing with the situation, looking at it 'from the inside' and weighing the situation to achieve, on balance, the greatest harmony, consensus and fit, considering the needs of the people involved. Those who prefer Thinking tend to decide things from a more detached standpoint, measuring the decision by what seems reasonable, logical, causal, consistent and matching a given set of rules.

Judging vs. Perceiving

Types with a preference for Judging show the world their preferred Judging function (Thinking vs. Feeling). So TJ types tend to appear to the world as logical, and FJ types as empathetic. Judging types prefer to have matters settled. Those types ending in P show the world their preferred Perceiving function (Sensing vs. iNtuition). So SP types tend to appear to the world as concrete and NP types as abstract. Perceiving types prefer to keep decisions open.

What the Raw Percentage means

This is your raw score out of 100. Scores higher than 50 percent are not necessarily above average. Your raw percentages are compared to other users' raw percentages, and then the comparative percentiles are given in the description below.
