Article to read and a Big 5 Test.

Jan 24, 2013

This describle the landscape of people who typically take these personality test and tells how even though Big 5 isn't very popular, that it is the most scientifically valid personality dynamic.

This is the Big 5 personality test that is linked in the article.

My results are as follows:

E: 25
A: 56
C: 33
N: 58
O: 90

Ironically, even tho I put up such a stink about Jordan Peterson's Big 5 test, I actually find the results of this test to be a much better depiction of how I should score on a Big 5 test. I think I had more accurate results with this test because of the way the agreement scale was represented ie. Strongly, A Little, Neutral/No Opinion.

I like the way it broke down the factors for each category. It helped me understand why my results tend to come out pretty neutral with the OCEAN tests (except O is always high).

I'm not very sociable, but I'm somewhat assertive.
I'm not very compassionate, but I'm very respectful.
I'm a little organized but not at all productive or responsible.
I'm not very prone to anxiety or negative emotions.
I'm open-minded in intellect, aesthetic and creative imagination.

Sounds about right, but only because it extracted that from direct questions. :P

Was I the only one who massively cringed at the ending of that article? "We don't like using type categories, but we need to be popular, so we'll use a franchise past its prime and give people totally-not-types based on it!"

I feel the older I get and the more of these tests I do the more to the center I gravitate, and also find these kind of questions just so damn narrow to the point of being ridiculous (which I suppose partly is the reason behind ending up neutral on so many). Whatever these things measure, it feels simply hollow to provide just a measurement of a what rather than the much more interesting (if harder to measure) why/how that makes other perhaps less rigorous/tested systems more intriguing to me.

Anyway here's my results
