I'm a O84-C52-E91-A87-N22 Big Five!!

My Big Five results were not that surprising to me.

I'm in the 84th percentile for Openness. I'm pretty open to new experiences... I've had about 7 different careers and am I just finished a masters in a slightly different field than I'm in.

I'm in the 54th %tile for Conscientiousness. I work pretty hard, but can be disorganized. There are times I start projects and don't finish them...partly because I'm always distracted by something new to do.

I'm in the 94th %tile for Extraversion. Duh... I get up and talk in front of people all day. I like to interact with others and tend to be pretty talkative. I'm not what anyone calls shy.

I'm in the 87th %tile for Agreeableness. I'm pretty easy to get along with... just ask my wife. I do respect other people and their beliefs so that makes me relatively agreeable.

I'm in the 22nd %tile for Neurotisism. This seems a bit low. I'm kind of nervous at times. I'm a little obsessive with keeping some things clean around my house... if someone leaves the cap off the toothpaste... AARRRGGGHHH!!! I think I'm more neurotic than the test said I am. (just ask my wife)

Overall, the test was pretty accurate for such a short simple test.

I'm a O1-C74-E1-A93-N55 Big Five!!

I'm not really surprised by my results. I did think that my percentile for Neuroticism was going to be lower, though.

I'm in the 1st percentile for openness. I prefer to stick to a set schedule. I also tend to see things in black and white most of the time, so I think this is accurate.

I'm in the 74th percentile for Conscientiousness. I'm pretty organized and I work hard when I put my mind to something.I can get distracted though, if I let myself. I'm very reliable as well.

I'm in the 1st percentile for Extraversion...I am a blatant introvert. I like to stay home, read books, and just be alone. This was not a surprise to me, and anyone who knows me knows this about me.

I'm in the 93rd percentile for Agreeableness. I love everyone and I'm very sympathetic. This makes me a good listener and respectful to anyone that I meet.

I'm in the 55th percentile for Neuroticism. Considering how I can tend to get very anxious and I'm very insecure, I am surprised that my score is as high as it is. I guess it depends on the situation...

I read my results to my mom, and she nodded her head when I told her, so I think it's pretty spot-on. In all, I liked this test.

These are my big five results, but to be honest I do not necessarily agree with one of them

I'm in the 80th percentile for Openness. I do enjoy novel experiences and seeing things in new ways. I become really curious when it comes to topics that interest me, and I begin to adapt different perspectives towards it.

I'm in the 94th percentile for Conscientiousness. I always work hard and I dislike when things start to get messy and out of context. I like things well done, well organized, and concise.

I'm in the 83rd percentile for Extraversion. I believe that I am a very bubbly person. I am always interacting with people and I always have the energy for it, I can't help and stay quiet... I'm easily captivated by civilians.

I'm in the 90th percentile for Agreeableness. The majority of the time I treat most people with great respect, and offer them my full support. I am also very easy to get along with.

I'm in the 14th percentile for Neurotisism. I do not agree with this score due to the fact that I am the shyest and most insecure person. I am also a neat freak, and I hate public speaking!!!! so calmness is rare.

I think this test was very interesting, for the information it provided me with about myself.

I'm in the 74th percentile of Agreeableness. I do tend to consider the feelings of others. I'm not the hateful person that will hold my hate towards you.

I scored a 59 percentile in Openness to Experience. to a certain degree I do agree with this, but that's not to say I'm not open to new experiences.
I scored a 69 percentile on Conscientiousness. I would agree to this, I am well organized most of the times and i am careful when it comes to serious things.

I scored a 59 percentile on Extraversion. I will have to disagree with that, I am a very friendly person and i do like to socialize with others. Not so muxh talkative, but hey when it comes to scremo bands and the violin, I wont shut up.

I scored an 18 percentile on Neuroticism. This one I will agree with, when the situation gets hard and out of control I will just remain calm and try to find solutions or positive outcomes to them.

Overall the test I would say is pretty accurate, but then again it was a short one to take.

Openness to Experience/Intellect: High scorers tend to be original, creative, curious, complex; Low scorers tend to be conventional, down to earth, narrow interests, uncreative.        You typically don't seek out new experiences.  (Your percentile: 41) i agree and then dont agree with this column.
Conscientiousness:  High scorers tend to be reliable, well-organized, self-disciplined, careful; Low scorers tend to be disorganized, undependable, negligent.        You are well-organized, and are reliable.   (Your percentile: 79) i agree completely
Extraversion :High scorers tend to be sociable, friendly, fun loving, talkative; Low scorers tend to be introverted, reserved, inhibited, quiet.        You are relatively social and enjoy the company of others.   (Your percentile: 74) again agree completely relatively is the perfect word
 Agreeableness:    High scorers tend to be good natured, sympathetic, forgiving, courteous; Low scorers tend to be critical, rude, harsh, callous.        You tend to consider the feelings of others.   (Your percentile: 74) i agree i am always thoughtful
 Neuroticism: High scorers tend to be nervous, high-strung, insecure, worrying; Low scorers tend to be calm, relaxed, secure, hardy.        You probably remain calm, even in tense situations.   (Your percentile: 14) i agree i dont get nervous because life is an adventure.
I all around liked the test because this time it let me get my results. It gives a pretty accurate description. Although i never put a 5 i wonder if Thats why i never got past 80%? Hmmm??

I'm a O47-C69-E22-A69-N87 Big Five!!

My percentile for Openness was 47%. I don't really think this is accurate because I do like learning and doing new things. I think it is low because I don't go out that often to experience something new. I don't have the time to do all of that, but it doesn't mean I'm not creative.

For Conscientiousness I got a 69%. I think this one was really precise because I am organized (most of the time) and self-disciplined. I'm way too careful, maybe even a bit paranoid. I'm not that organized when it comes to my room because I share my room with my brother and he is a pig. So I gave up trying to keep it clean.

I got a 22% for Extraversion, my lowest percentile. This one was accurate as well. I tend to keep to myself most of the time. I think the 22% came from me being friendly and talkative with people I'm close to. I'm anti-social for the most part.

I got a 69% for Agreeableness. This seems pretty exact to me because I'm very forgiving, though it's not always a good thing. I respect people until I start to feel like they don't like me or they act rude towards me. And not many people are respectful these days. I'm extremely sympathetic with people because sometimes people really just want to talk to someone who understands, and I know the feeling.

My percentile for Neuroticism was 87%, my highest percentile. This one was also very accurate. I'm an extremely nervous person as well as insecure, high-strung, and worrying. The word "relaxed" is just not in my vocabulary.

I think this was a pretty accurate test overall, but maybe it would be perfect if it had more and different questions.

I took this test twice & came out with almost the same results except for in one area.

I got a 10 in openness to experience. I agree with this a little because I get anxious & nervous in unfamiliar situations so I agree to some degree but on the other hand, I like to do new things to make like more interesting.

I got a 10 in contentious. I slightly agree with this because I can be cold & careless alot . sometimes I stop in the middle of a project or assignment just because of a lack of motivation or my carelessness. But I try to stay on top of my school work :)

I got a 4 in extraversion & I agree. I don't see myself as some one who's extraverted I've always considered myself to be introverted.

The second the I took this test I got a 44 in agreeableness when the first time I got about a 50 something. I don't agree with this. I think I'm a very understanding & forgiving person & thought that I'd score higher in agreeableness.

The highest I received in these cateogis was in neuroticism. I got a 98 & I strongly agree. Having ocd & always be anxious & nervous about things I strong agree with the the percentile I scored in neuroticism.

I think this test was an accurate measure for the most part. Some parts I didn't agree with too much but in some areas it was dead on .

Openness I scored in the 20 percentile, I do not agree with this because I am usually open-minded in some aspects not all but this makes it seem like I’m a very much closed minded person.
Conscientiousness I scored in the 83 percentile and I strongly agree with that percent because I’m the type of person that’s very reliable when it comes to the task at hand and I am a well-organized person. I like to have my stuff organized, if my book bag has papers everywhere I have to stop ad clean it out even if it’s in the middle of class.
Extraversion I scored in the 79 percentile and I agree with this because I like to be around people and feel included. I am a very social person and I like to meet new people and associate.
Agreeableness I scored in the 87 percentile which was my highest and I strongly agree toward this one as well. I’m very supportive when it comes to my friends and people I care about and in certain situations I’m courteous of others.
Neuroticism I scored in the 27 percentile and I agree as well with this one because I am not the type to worry a lot about things, I take it one step at a time and I am generally a relaxed person.

i'm a O53-C52-E59-A50-N37 Big Five!!

So i was sorta surprised with the results of this test cause some of the things i found not to be so accurate. For Openness to Experience/Intellect i scored a 53%. I claim to find out new experiences and find out new things in life so that for sure isn't so accurate in my case. For Conscientiousness it wasn't so surprising because I'm not so organized but neither am i disorganized. So i agreed on that and my percent was a 57.
Extraversion was a complete shock. Im really talkative and very sociable this was a real low and disagreed on this. Everyone know that Ferny is talkative. Percentage was a 59.
Neuroticism was more accurate. I tend to be very relaxed and chill. So that was one of the few i agreed on. My percent was a 37.
