Big Five Personality Result
Every day, we describe and assess the personalities of the people around us. Personality is the particular combination of emotional, attitudinal, and behavioral response patterns of an individual. It describes how the person generally tends to feel, think, and behave. There are five general personality traits we organized today: extraversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness to experience. Extraversion is a personality trait that predisposes individuals to experience positive emotional states and feel good about themselves and about the world around them. Neuroticism reflects people’s tendencies to experience negative emotional states, feel distressed, and generally view themselves and the world around them negatively. Agreeableness is the trait that captures the distinction between individuals who get along well with other people and those who do not. Conscientiousness is the extent to which an individual is careful, scrupulous, and persevering. Openness to experience captures the extent to which an individual is original, open to a wide variety of stimuli, has broad interests, and is willing to take risks as opposed to being narrow-minded and cautious. I believe that the big five assessment results are accurate and organizations should use personality assessments in the hiring process.

The other reason is that I have done the big five personality test which is on the blackboard about my personality. The result shows almost the same as what I think who I am. I got low scorers on Openness to Experience and Extraversion, because I am really shy away from social situation...
