You are Extroverted, Conscientious, Neurotic and Open
Extroversion:

You have medium extroversion.
You're not the life of the party, but you do show up for the party.
Sometimes you are full of energy and open to new social experiences.
But you also need to hibernate and enjoy your "down time".

Conscientiousness:

You have medium conscientiousness.
You're generally good at balancing work and play.
When you need to buckle down, you can usually get tasks done.
But you've been known to goof off when you know you can get away with it.

Agreeableness:

You have low agreeableness.
Your self interest comes first, and others come later, if at all.
In general, you feel that people are not to be trusted.
And you're skeptical that anyone else really feels differently.

Neuroticism:

You have medium neuroticism.
You're generally cool and collected, but sometimes you do panic.
Little worries or problems can consume you, draining your energy.
Your life is pretty smooth, but there's a few emotional bumps you'd like to get rid of.

Openness to experience:

Your openness to new experiences is medium.
You are generally broad minded when it come to new things.
But if something crosses a moral line, there's no way you'll approve of it.
You are suspicious of anything too wacky, though you do still consider creativity a virtue.

I agree. I took the quiz because I had free time and needed to get 5 posts. I think people take internet quizzes far too seriously.


Five factor personality theory is well established. It is real science, published in scientific journals.

I'm not sure about this format though. I've never seen a "check all that apply" version before, and don't know how valid they are. Usually they ask you to rate yourself on a scale of 1-5, and there are at least as many questions as here, typically more. I don't think this version is a very good one for that reason.

I have a different version in my webfolder if anyone wants to compare the two:

Openness to experience:

Your openness to new experiences is low.
You're a pretty conservative person, and you favor what's socially acceptable.
You think that change for novelty's sake is a very bad idea.
While some may see this as boring, many see you as dependable and wise.

I agree with most of that, except the following:
"Impulsive and off the wall, you don't take life too seriously."
... I don't know how impulsive I am, but I'm not "off the wall", and I do take life pretty seriously.

"You're a pretty conservative person, and you favor what's socially acceptable.
You think that change for novelty's sake is a very bad idea."
...Um, nope. Not at all.
