Personality

Big Five Quick Screen

πŸ’‘ Personality is the characteristic patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that make a person unique. It is believed that personality arises from within the individual and remains fairly consistent throughout life. While there are many different definitions of personality, most focus on the pattern of behaviors and characteristics that can help predict and explain a person's behavior.

πŸ‘‰ A personality test is a tool used to assess human personality. Personality testing and assessment refer to techniques designed to measure the characteristic patterns of traits that people exhibit across various situations. Personality tests are often used both to improve workplace synergy and to find the right candidate for open roles

‍

The Big Five Quick Screen is a quick, valid and reliable measure of personality that is based on the MINI-IPIP.

The personality scale measures the five-factor model of personality traits on five dimensions.

‍

  • Neuroticism (negative emotion, anxiety, vulnerability, irritability)
  • Agreeableness (altruism, empathy, cooperation, politeness)
  • Conscientiousness (organization, industriousness, diligence, constraint)
  • Extraversion (positive emotion, enthusiasm, sociability, assertiveness)
  • Openness/Intellect (imagination, intelligence, curiosity, creativity)
