Big 5 Personality Test

Lamar a Highschool friend of mine got married 3 years ago
It wasn’t until recently that I found the time, energy and motivation to meet up with them.
lamar played the lead role in high school performances, he was friendly sociable a bit laid back and a great listener.
I was Quiet, reserved but at times eccentric you could find me in the library with Steven & Nate the math bros. Playing Yugioh cards, chess, trading pokemon’s and having nerdy conversations.
Lamar would occasionally join us to play pokemon.
After Highschool we went our separate directions I moved across the country for college, while he stayed at a local college.
we met at Starbucks yesterday to catch up. To my surprise, the majority of the time was I spent in conversation with his wife Jess. A stay at home wife with a big interest in psychology and learning different languages. Our conversation began with her saying
” I hope you don’t mind being psychoanalyzed because that’s what I enjoy doing ”
She talked about Jungian functions, the Meyers Briggs personality test and how the Big 5 personality test & the Hexaco test are better measurements of your personality. I talked about my day to day activities at the lab, the current state of physics and how a good diet keeps your mind healthy.
Lamar occasionally chimed in on the conversation, as we walked around Green Lake

For today’s post, I’ll be talking 2 different personality tests one with 80 questions and another with 120 questions.
posting my results and briefly say whether I agree or disagree with the results. Granted 80-120 questions will not encapsulate the gamut of a human personality, I expect a general outline of my personality.
The first test is 80 questions, gives a summary of percentages that tally up to 100% of a personality. Which I disliked because it’s childishly simplistic to say the aggregate of these traits is your whole personality, and I don’t agree with the results

you can take the test at

My results

  • Agreeableness= Compassion and Politeness
  • Conscientiousness= Industriousness and Orderliness
  • Extraversion =Enthusiasm and Assertiveness
  • Emotional Stability /Neuroticism = Withdrawal and Volatility
  • Openness to Experience= Openness and Intellect

personality test 1

Id like to note Do not be confused with the personality aspect of Intellect with IQ. Intellect is a measure of interest in abstract ideas, essentially, while IQ is a measure of processing speed, verbal ability, working memory, and problem-solving capacity.

I’m pleased with 123’s comparative personality test because the results are a comparison between yourself and everyone else who has taken the test. It’s best to imagine the 1-100 scale as being placed in a room with 100 people and seeing where you stack up compared to the others in different traits.

That being said I don’t agree on some of the results

test 2

Natural reaction: C’MON a 1 is like a monk on Ketamine, relaxed all the time and phased by nothing, yes I’m not easily upset in stressful situations and I’m relaxed most of the time but I have my moments my revised Natural reaction should be 25-35

Agreeableness: Hard- Headed, skeptical, and proud are not words I would use to describe myself. Yes I’m competitive at times I feel like I’m at least a 45

Extraversion: Resolved, Formal, serious, quiet YESS all true …..But I also like to think that I’m friendly at timesπŸ˜…πŸ˜……….😘 im at least a 27

If you have time I’d be curious to see what you think of your own results, do you think they’re a good measurement of those traits?

  1. Ha ha!!! I am absolutely doing this as well! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ This is too funny! But, now I wish that I could hang out with you in real life to mess with that “natural reaction” of yours!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚… Although, maybe not because of how disagreeable you are! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      1. HA HA HA!!! I didn’t even think of that!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Hmm…. πŸ€”πŸ€” Yup. Pretty sure you’re screwed…. Well, that’s fine. I’m sure I’ll probably be pretty disagreeable, as well… We can be disagreeable together. 😘
