Trait Explanations

In order to interpret your raw percentages, 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.

Openness

This trait refers to the extent to which you prefer novelty versus convention. Approximately 42% 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 aware of their feelings but doesn't get carried away with their imagination either. You might say that you embrace change when it is necessary while still resisting it when you think it is not, and that beauty is important to you, but it's not everything. However, your friends' descriptions suggest that they think that your ideas are more unconventional than you realise, and that you would consider a broader range of experiences than you think.

Conscientiousness

This trait refers to the extent to which you prefer an organised, or a flexible, approach in life. Approximately 24.2% 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 is spontaneous and fun, and that you like to do unexpected things that make life that bit more interesting. You might say that you aren't completely unreliable, but you've been known to slip up on occasion. However, your friends' descriptions suggest that they see you as someone who is more prepared than you think, and so they would put their trust in you to get something done.

Extraversion

This trait refers to the extent to which you enjoy company, and seek excitement and stimulation. Approximately 24.2% 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 prefers low-key social occasions, with a few close friends. You might say that it's not that you are afraid of large parties; they're just not that fun for you. However, your friends' descriptions suggest that they consider you to be far more outgoing than you realise. They think you are much more enthusiastic and energetic than you rate yourself to be.

Agreeableness

This trait refers to the way you express your opinions and manage relationships. Approximately 16% 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. Your friends' descriptions suggest that they generally agree with this view.

Neuroticism (Emotional Stability)

This trait refers to the way you cope with, and respond to, life's demands. Approximately 54% 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. Your friends' descriptions suggest that they generally agree with this view.

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.

INTJ

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.

Your friend ratings disagree with this, suggesting that they view you as an 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 have a true Virgo personality!

The Virgo personality is described as "fussy", "narrow-minded" and "petty", which suggests a below-average openness trait score. This is accurate for you.

It is also described as observant, detail-oriented, precise, and other adjectives suggesting an above-average conscientiousness trait score, however, in contrast your conscientiousness trait score is actually below average.

The Virgo personality is shy, reflective and is "happy to allow others to take centre stage", suggesting a below-average extraversion trait score. You do indeed have a close a below-average extraversion score.

The Virgo personality has an extremely high agreeableness score, since it "maintains faith in others" and "refuses to become cynical", it also thrives in the "service to others" industries, however, your agreeableness trait score is actually below the average.

Nothing either way is said about emotional stability, so an average neuroticism trait score is assumed. Indeed, your neuroticism trait score is about average.

Overall therefore, your star sign has accurately predicted 3 out of 5 traits, which means that you are just about a true Virgo!

Your score is higher than 94.5% of the comparison group. This indicates that you would say you are interested in different kinds of lifestyles, and take a balanced approach to violence and the supernatural.
Intellectual Activities:
Your score is higher than 84.1% of the comparison group. This indicates that you would say you enjoy activities that involve thinking, but you can enjoy life's simple mindless pleasures too.

Your score is higher than 88.5% of the comparison group. This indicates that you would say you believe some things without good evidence, but you'd much prefer it if possible.
Wholesome Interests:
Your score is higher than 42% of the comparison group. This indicates that you would say you enjoy a mixture of activities, some are well-lived, but some are... a bit unwholesome!

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.
