Courtney Have you heard of the Big 5? What are your views on the Big 5?

This will be a great discussion and fun topic to discuss. I provided a couple of links to what is often known as the Big 5 personalty test (different forms). Take one, take all, take none.... share what you thought about these type test (you do not have share your results) but remember to be nice an respectful of everyone's opinion!

Here are a couple of links to the Big 5 Personality Test

Courtney I took a couple of them and the first and last domain were almost always the same. Introvert and then rating high on the intellect area.... the other areas were all over the map.

Now I believe I am on the introvert side... but that is nothing new to me. Aloof was a common word I heard through my entire life. However, I think the Big 5 personality test can be changed by the mood in which you have taken it in.

I am going to compare my results with husband


Iesha (In east shade house at...) (emberblue) Yes, I'm on the introvert side too.

Hilda Reilly | 26 comments I had a look at them and realized that many of the answers I would give now would be completely different from what I would have given forty years ago.

Phil I've been using outofservice for years in my psych classes. For any Star Wars fans, I highly recommend their Star Wars "twin" test. You'll test on each of the Big Five, they'll give you percentile scores for each, plus a Star Wars character like you for each trait.

I've just finished a book about the enneagram, it seems to me the best personality' measuring system developed by iChazo. Has anyone in here found his/her enneagram number ?
