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. :)

Stuff like this is so interesting. Today I was pondering on how I think of myself as an introvert, yet I was one of the only volunteers to speak in training today in front of 30 other people... I guess sometimes we don't necessarily give ourselves credit for being loud!

There are a lot of "tests" like this though I don't think I've heard of this one.
