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.


This trait refers to the extent to which you prefer novelty versus convention. Approximately 88.5% of respondents have a lower openness raw percentage than yours. From the way you answered the questions, you seem to describe yourself as someone who is far more intellectually curious and sensitive to beauty than most. You might say that your beliefs are individualistic and frequently drift towards the unconventional, and that you enjoy your imagination and the exciting places it takes you!


This trait refers to the extent to which you prefer an organised, or a flexible, approach in life. Approximately 69.2% of respondents have a lower conscientiousness raw percentage than yours. From the way you answered the questions, you seem to describe yourself as someone who avoids forseeable trouble through purposefully planning, and achieves success through persistence. From your responses it appears that you are reliable and prepared for life's challenges.


This trait refers to the extent to which you enjoy company, and seek excitement and stimulation. Approximately 11.5% of respondents have a lower extraversion raw percentage than yours. From the way you answered the questions, you seem to describe yourself as someone who is quiet and somewhat withdrawn. Your answers describe you as someone who doesn't need lots of other people around to have fun, and can sometimes find that people are tiring.


This trait refers to the way you express your opinions and manage relationships. Approximately 5.5% of respondents have a lower agreeableness raw percentage than yours. From the way you answered the questions, you seem to describe yourself as someone who is willing to make difficult decisions when necessary, and will point out when something is wrong no matter what other people might feel. Your responses suggest that you would say that you can be tough and uncompromising.

Neuroticism (Emotional Stability)

This trait refers to the way you cope with, and respond to, life's demands. Approximately 69.2% of respondents have a lower neuroticism raw percentage than yours. From the way you answered the questions, you seem to describe yourself as someone who is generally calm. Based on your responses, you come across as someone who can feel emotional or stressed out by some experiences, however your feelings tend to be warranted by the situation.

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.


Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Judging

INTJs are very analytical individuals. They are more comfortable working alone than with other people, and are not usually as sociable as others, although they are prepared to take the lead if nobody else is up to the task, or they see a major weakness in the current leadership. They tend to be very pragmatic and logical individuals, often with an individualistic bent and a low tolerance for spin or rampant emotionalism. They are also commonly not susceptible to catchphrases and commonly do not recognize authority based on tradition, rank or title. Hallmark features of the INTJ personality type include independence of thought, strong individualism and creativity. Persons with this personality type work best given large amounts of autonomy and creative freedom. They harbour an innate desire to express themselves; that is to be creative by conceptualizing their own intellectual designs. Analyzing and formulating complex theories are among their greatest strengths.

Personality Matches

MyPersonality has found that the Big Five traits are related to various life behaviours and choices.

Please bear in mind that these are very specific matches. Few tests will even try to give such specific information, so cut us some slack if it is not perfect for you! :-)

My Star Sign Personality?

You do not have a Cancer personality...

The Cancer personality is described on the one hand as "endearingly eccentric" and stimulating, but on the other hand "security oriented", which overall still suggests a slightly above-average openness trait score. However, your openness trait score is even higher than the Cancer personality predicts.

It is also described as having ever changing moods, which is difficult to reconcile with the reliability that having a high conscientiousness trait score entails, so suggests a below-average score, however, your conscientiousness trait score is actually above average.

The Cancer personality says that its members are "self-contained" and "family and home oriented", suggesting they are more introverted than extroverted. However, you are actually even more introverted than the Cancer personality predicts.

The Cancer personality is "compassionate and caring with friends", but can also "cut to the bone with their jealous remarks and changing moods", overall suggesting an average agreeableness trait score, however, your agreeableness trait score is actually significantly below the average.

The most extreme trait for a Cancer personality is its lack of emotional stability, which is "up and down like the proverbial yo-yo", suggesting a very high neuroticism trait score. However, your neuroticism trait score is actually below average.

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

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


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


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


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
