The Big Five has been known to be one of the more accurate personality tests because the traits that it measures are empirically derived. This means that out of a bunch of questions, psychologists have narrowed down patterns of responses in to five traits: Openness to Experience (Intellect/Imagination), Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism (Emotional Stability). Obviously, a free online one probably isn't as accurate as the ones that people actually pay money to complete, but I'm interested in seeing where you guys lie on this test. Higher score percentile means that you're higher in that trait.

The Test: https://openpsychometrics.org/tests/IPIP-BFFM/

I don't really like the explanation of the traits on that site because it only portrays one side of each trait as good, so I'd recommend giving Wikipedia a read instead. There have been multiple health correlations associated with a number of these traits, most notably conscientiousness, neuroticism, and extraversion. But I'll save you from hearing me regurgitate my entire Personality class from last semester. :P

Also here are my results:

Damn that extroversion is low. Also Agreeableness was a little lower than I thought, I'm not that critical and aggressive anymore I swear 😥

Gotta say, I'm not suprised that Extroversion is low and emotinal stababiliy is high. I was expecting Imagination to be higher, though. Also, dang, Conscientiousness is low. I mean, I know I'm pretty flexible in most situations, but still.
Agreeableness I feel should be higher. I'm not really a competitive person in most situations.

I think the percentile is just how many people scored lower than you, despite the site saying it's how many scored higher. The URL of your result has numbers for your scores, too: 3.3, 3.9, 5, 4, 4.1

I say this is pretty interesting:



Agreeableness is really low though, too low for me to view as accurate (ironic lol). Other than that, decent I guess; I just find it interesting.

Edit: After doing it a second time, with a rested mind, and giving it a little bit more thought, this is what I got:



Overall I feel that is a wee bit more accurate, as the results are a wee bit different. Still disagree with Agreeableness though. I still feel like it's too low.

I’m glad that my agreeableness is fairly high, but the rest could be better.

Sounds about right for me, haha! Energetic and friendly but more than a bit disorganized.

...Is it bad to disagree on a low agreeableness score?
Wikipedia said:
(friendly/compassionate vs. challenging/detached). Tendency to be compassionate and cooperative rather than suspicious and antagonistic towards others. It is also a measure of one's trusting and helpful nature, and whether a person is generally well-tempered or not. High agreeableness is often seen as naive or submissive. Low agreeableness personalities are often competitive or challenging people, which can be seen as argumentative or untrustworthy.
Understands the detached part. Veers away from arguments and competition.

My lack of a mind's eye brought down that last bar. I can guarantee it.

I think this all describes me pretty well, though I wish emotional stability was a little higher. It'll get better as time goes on I'm sure, and I guarantee I was worse before.
