    Arrow 'Big Five' Personality Test ['Extraversion, Confidence, Confidence, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness']

    Personality Questionnaire



    This is a full personality test based on the best-known system of classifying personality traits: the five-factor model.
    You will be asked to rate yourself on 68 different emotional states. You will then be asked six further short questions.
    The entire test should take about 15 minutes.
    It was designed by Neil Scott of Cassin-Scott Associates.
    We will not pass on your personal details to any other organisation without your permission except for the purposes of processing the data for this experiment.



    http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbo...ty/index.shtml

    My Results:

    Extraversion
    Some people like lots of stimulation; they want people around them, activity and excitement, whilst others prefer to be able to focus on things in a calm and quiet environment.
    Most people prefer a blend of the two extremes although your answers suggest that you have a preference for the quieter setting, preferring the company of just one or two people to large crowds. This may help you if you work in a quiet, ordered or solitary setting but you may find things less comfortable than most if you are constantly interrupted.

    Confidence
    Some people make decisions very easily and tend not to worry about them before or afterwards while, at the other extreme, some people are so careful and cautious that the decisions never get made! Taking a cautious approach can be a good thing (do you want to fly with a pilot that is so free from worry and concern that she never checks her controls and instruments and doesn't bother to communicate with air-traffic control?) and you seem to have described yourself as someone who does tend to be quite cautious and careful. This can be very important in detailed work or areas were mistakes can have a major cost although you may find yourself avoiding risks and many cautious people wish they were bolder.

    Openness
    While some people like experimenting with new things and ideas, others prefer traditional methods and taking a very practical approach to problems.

    Your answers suggest that you like to balance a willingness to try new things with making sure you don't scrap an existing approach that works just because it has been around for a while. Like most people you may not enjoy constant change and uncertainty or an environment where nothing develops from year to year, but your preparedness to see the merits of new and old alike can be helpful.

    Agreeableness
    Most people want to be able to get on with others but to some it is the most important thing in the world, whilst others are quite happy to upset someone else if it means that things get done.

    Your answers suggest that you can be firm with people when you need to be but that getting on with others is still important to you. Like most people you would rather avoid conflict but are not prepared to put up with being treated badly by others.

    Conscientiousness
    Some people like everything to be well planned, tidy and organised, whilst others prefer to deal with things as they come up and appear to work in absolute chaos.

    Your answers suggest that you don't like having things too structured or being tied down and you can cope quite well without having to have everything organised. This may make it hard to find things at times or for colleagues to know where you are or what you are doing, but you probably find coping with the unexpected (the things your colleagues didn't plan for!) easier than many.

    This questionnaire can't tell you exactly what you are like; it doesn't go into enough detail and only helps you ask questions about the way you behave and make decisions in your occupation. Don't rely on it to tell you what your personality is like but use it to think about the different ways that people go about doing things. Read each description, ask yourself if it sounds like you (and it may not!)

    Some people like lots of stimulation; they want people around them, activity and excitement, whilst others prefer to be able to focus on things in a calm and quiet environment. Most people prefer a blend of the two extremes and your answers suggest that you are quite comfortable in either situation. You can probably cope with things being a bit hectic or a bit quiet but, like most people, you may find extremes in either direction uncomfortable or annoying.

    Your answers suggest that you are not prepared to put up with being messed about with and are quite comfortable being direct with people, even if this upsets them. You may therefore find it frustrating working in an environment that is very polite and where upsetting people makes it harder to get things done.

    Conscientiousness

    Some people like everything to be well planned, tidy and organised, whilst others prefer to deal with things as they come up and appear to work in absolute chaos.

    Your answers suggest that, like most people, you like to have a little clarity about where things are but that you would rather cope with some things as they arise than spend too much time sorting out every single detail. This approach may help you when working with teams and also when having to deal with those situations that you just can't plan for.

    Your answers suggest that you like to have things very ordered and structured. This can be very important in many situations especially when you work in teams. However, don't assume that just because your colleagues seem less organised or tidy than you that they are inefficient - they may just have a different way of being effective.
