          The Big Five Test

          Do you ever wonder what your personality says about you? Every person has a different personality, and we’re all unique in some way. But, personality researchers have proposed that there are five basic dimensions of personality, and certain personality traits tend to go together.

          According to Sam Gosling, PH.D., author of Snoop: What Your Stuff Says about You, the most extensively examined and firmly established system for grouping personality traits is the framework known as the Big Five. These traits are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism (OCEAN).

          To learn more about your own personality, take the test below. Choose an answer from the corresponding drop-down menus to indicate the extent to which you agree or disagree with that statement. You should rate the extent to which the pair of traits applies to you, even if one characteristic applies more strongly than the other.
