Big Five Personality Test

Hullooooooo my friends!
In my psychology class the other day, we had to take a personality test.  I love learning about my personality and this one kind of surprised me.  It's called The Big Five Personality Test and measure five things - Extroversion, Emotional Stability, Orderliness, Accomodation, and Intellect.

My type was SLOAI, with my primary type being Organized.  So here's what it means:

Extroversion |||||||||||||||| 70%
Orderliness |||||||||||||||||| 72%
Emotional Stability |||||||||| 36%
Accommodation |||||||||||||| 52%
Inquisitiveness |||||||||||| 50%

Extroversion results were high which suggests you are overly talkative, outgoing, sociable and interacting at the expense too often of developing your own individual interests and internally based identity.
Orderliness results were high which suggests you are overly organized, neat, structured and restrained at the expense too often of flexibility, variety, spontaneity, and fun.
Emotional Stability results were moderately low which suggests you are worrying, insecure, emotional, and anxious.
Accommodation results were medium which suggests you are moderately kind natured, trusting, and helpful while still maintaining your own interests.
Inquisitiveness results were medium which suggests you are moderately intellectual, curious, and imaginative.

Here are my key words: "open, organized, asks lots of questions, outgoing, prone to panic, easily hurt, narcissistic, detail oriented, concerned about others, the first to act, believes children need firm discipline, finishes most things they start, comfortable around others, upset by the misfortunes of strangers, socially skilled, compliments others frequently, interested in people, busy, interested in the problems of others, tense, physically affectionate, overly nice, likes to lead, generous, in touch with feelings, not afraid to draw attention to self, manipulative, prone to jealousy, worrying, easily excited, motivated by a desire for acclaim, prone to addiction, frequently driven to impress others, passionate about causes, swayed by emotions, curious, anxious, passionate about bettering the world's condition, stressed, keeps spaces clean, believes in human goodness, well informed, thoughtful, assertive, fears doing the wrong thing, rushed."

You can read more about the key here.

I was actually surprised that I got so high in Extroversion, especially since I consider myself an introvert.  But I guess because I don't really mind being the center of attention, and because I talk all the time, that put me in the extrovert category because other people might feel really uncomfortable.  I think overall, however, this result described me pretty well. :)

Sorry for the lack of posts!

Hey guys!  Sorry I haven't been posting lately.  I have some posts in drafts, but nothing I really wanted to post right away.  I just haven't felt like updating lately because I've been busy with other hobbies, but keep checking back to the site.  Thank you, followers! Have a nice weekend! :D ♥

If You Met Me

I so took this from Nela haha.
If you met me I would be smiling and laughing in no time.
If you met me you would notice that I look young for my age but I'm really mature.  People say I have an old soul.

If you met me I would talk your head off but I wouldn't give much information about my personal life because I'm a pretty private person.

If you met me you would see that my best and really only friend is my older sister.  We have so much in common (in addition to being related!) and I don't know many people in my town who have the same standards, morals, and interests as us.  She's the best! :D

If you met me I would try to make you feel very comfortable.

If you met me I would ask you what music you liked and then recommend you a bunch of songs.

If you met me you would see how close I am to my whole family.

I'm Currently Reading...Bleak House by Charles Dickens

I'm reading the Signet Classics version, but it doesn't say 150th Anniversary Edition on mine.  I don't know if there is any difference though.

Currently reading: Bleak House by Charles Dickens
Author: Charles Dickens

Written: Between 1852 and 1853 in 20 monthly installments.

Reason: I really like most of the Dickens books that I read, and my sister has been wanting me to read this one.  Since winter break is coming up and school is starting to slow down for me, I thought this would be the perfect time for me to read it.
Chapters read so far: 1 - 6.
