Below you'll find a description of your personality from multiple perspectives, including:
- your placement on five broad personality dimensions,
- a collection of adjectives describing your personality, and
- your predicted type in a popular personality typology.
TraitLab estimates your position on five broad personality dimensions, commonly known as the Big Five in personality research.
For each dimension, you've received a score that describes how you compare to other people who answered the same questions. These scores can range from 1 to 100. The higher the number, the higher you scored on this dimension compared to other people on TraitLab.
For example, a score of 98 means your score falls in the 98th percentile of all scores. In other words, you are higher than about 98% of people on this dimension, or lower than about 2% of people on this dimension.
Openness: 98th percentile
You are higher than most people on the Openness to Experience dimension.
As a highly open person, you crave new experiences and enjoy learning about different points of view.
You are likely deeply curious about a wide range of topics, and you may occasionally get lost when diving into a new subject, hobby, or intellectual pursuit.
You may be eager to escape from familiar sights and routines, and you often defy conventional norms or ways of thinking.
In the world of ideas and feelings, you are adventurous. You are unusually sensitive and aware of your own emotions and patterns of thought. You feel a need to consistently expand your perspective and often reflect deeply on your past experiences.
You have a high tolerance for ambiguity and an appreciation for complexity. While some people prefer things to be merely black or white, you are very comfortable with shades of grey.
Conscientiousness: 93rd percentile
You are higher than most people on the Conscientiousness dimension.
You are usually very systematic in your thinking and planning. You prefer detailed plans, schedules, and routines, rather than simply figuring things out in the moment.
You can maintain focus on long-term goals (e.g., schooling, career, or health goals), persist through difficult challenges, and are less easily distracted by short-term opportunities and other temptations.
You value order and regularity. While you may not agree with every socially-accepted rule and guideline, you tend to do things by the book, regardless of the situation.
Extraversion: 2nd percentile
You are lower than most people on the Extraversion dimension.
You try to limit most social engagements when possible. You prefer to sit back and observe, and you avoid being the center of attention.
You gravitate towards less stimulating environments, and you avoid loud, busy, and crowded spaces. After a long or intense social engagement, you may feel overstimulated and exhausted, and you may need extended downtime to recover.
In group situations, you are more reserved than most people. You tend to speak less often, speak more softly, and smile and laugh less frequently than others in these settings. You are more comfortable when playing a supporting role, rather than taking charge and leading the group.
Agreeableness: 75th percentile
You are higher than most people on the Agreeableness dimension.
You are highly motivated to maintain warm, friendly relationships with other people. You avoid conflict as much as possible, and when conflict does arise, you immediately seek to reduce or resolve any interpersonal tension.
You strive to be helpful and cooperative, and people often see you as a team player. You are more likely to do what is best for the group, rather than only do what is best for you.
You are highly sensitive to the emotions of other people. You often try to see things from another person's perspective, and you consider their feelings before taking action. You readily take on the emotions of people close to you. For example, if your friend is sad, you feel sad, too.
Neuroticism: 42nd percentile
You are in the middle of the spectrum on the Neuroticism dimension.
Under periods of stress, you may feel some negative emotions, like sadness, anxiety, and anger, and these will typically fade when the situation resolves.
You may worry about future events occasionally, but not excessively. You are neither overly optimistic nor pessimistic.
Stressful events can sometimes disrupt several areas of your life, such as your thinking, eating, and sleeping, but you often recover soon after the event. You may have occasional bouts of depression or anxiety, but these are relatively infrequent and short-lived.
Personality in Words
Another way to describe personality is through a unique combination of descriptive words. While there are thousands of words for describing someone, some will be a much better description for you than others.For example, based on your results, you might be described as particularly contemplative, introspective, meditative, inner-directed, and serious.
"According to TraitLab, I am contemplative, introspective, meditative, inner-directed, and serious."
Below is a visualization of up to 100 words that roughly describe your personality. While all of the words below describe your personality to some degree, some words are better descriptors than others. The size of each word is determined by how closely the word describes your personality. Bigger words describe prominent aspects of your personality, and smaller words describe less prominent aspects.
A common way of thinking about personality involves typology, or categorizing personalities into distinct types. While typological approaches present a very simple and clear description, these approaches are oversimplifications and tend to ignore the important nuances that make individuals unique.
Because all typologies throw away useful information, TraitLab does not assign types to individuals or use typological approaches internally. However, TraitLab can predict how you would likely be categorized according to popular typologies. This might be a useful way to compare your TraitLab results to other popular personality measures.
For example, in the popular "16 personalities" typology, each type is described with four letters, and each letter indicates a preferences on one of four underlying dimensions: Introversion-Extraversion, Sensing-Intuiting, Thinking-Feeling, and Judging-Perceiving.
Based on your results, you would likely be categorized as:
According to the theory behind this typology, INFJs tend to prefer:
- Introversion: oriented towards the internal world, rather than the external one
- Intuition: oriented towards internal intuition, rather than direct sensory information
- Feeling: oriented towards judging new information by its emotional qualities and impacts, rather than through logical analysis
- Judging: oriented towards organizing, categorizing, and processing information as soon as it is encountered
