Compare your personality results to anyone else on TraitLab
In the Basic Assessment, TraitLab estimates your position on five core personality dimensions.
For each dimension, you've received a score that describes how you compare to most people. These scores can range from 1 to 100. The higher the number, the higher you scored on this dimension compared to other people.
For example, a score of 20, means your score falls in the 20th percentile of all scores. In other words, you are higher than about 20% of people on this dimension, or lower than about 80% of people on this dimension.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Your results show up to 100 words that 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.
"According to TraitLab, I am contemplative, introspective, meditative, inner-directed, and serious."
Your personality results can also be expressed as one of the popular 16 personality "types". Using types carries less information than the Big Five dimensions above, but types may be a useful way to compare your TraitLab results to other popular personality measures.
Based on your personality dimensions, you are most similar to:
Each type is a four-letter code, and each letter indicates a preference on one of four dimensions: Introversion-Extraversion, Sensing-Intuiting, Thinking-Feeling, and Judging-Perceiving.
