Personality Profile | gregorypark
Below are estimates of gregorypark's placement on five broad personality traits, known as the Big Five in personality research:
Each personality dimension is described by a best estimate and a margin of error.
The best estimate is a single number (between 1 and 99) that describes how gregorypark compares to other people who answered the same questions. The higher the number, the higher gregorypark scored on this trait compared to other people on TraitLab.
The margin of error describes the reliability of the best estimate. A highly reliable estimate will have a small, narrow margin of error, while a less reliable estimate will have a bigger, wider margin of error. Estimates become more reliable by answering more questions.
Openness to Experience
Based on their answers so far, our best estimate of their level of Openness puts them at the 90th percentile. In other words, they scored higher than 90%, or lower than 10%, of other people. This estimate will vary as they answer additional questions, and their true value is likely somewhere between the 77th and 97th percentiles.

While there are thousands of words for describing someone, some words are especially fitting for gregorypark, based on their personality dimensions.For example, gregorypark might be described as particularly considerate, quiet, thoughtful, compassionate, and caring.
Below is a visualization of up to 100 words that roughly describe their personality. While all of the words below describe their personality to some degree, some words are better descriptors than others. The size of each word is determined by how closely the word describes their personality. Bigger words describe prominent aspects of their personality, and smaller words describe less prominent aspects.
16 Personality Type Similarity
A popular way of thinking about personality involves typology, or categorizing personalities into simple types.
For example, in the popular "16 personalities" typology, each type is described by four letters, indicating a combination of attitudes and favored cognitive functions: Introversion-Extraversion, Sensing-Intuiting, Thinking-Feeling, and Judging-Perceiving.
Below are TraitLab's estimates for your relative preference on each of the four dimensions underlying the 16 personalities model:
The four preferences above are typically used to classify people into a single personality type. However, all typologies are oversimplifications, and nobody falls neatly into a single type.
One way to improve the typology approach is to think of an individual personality as a unique blend of multiple types. Below, you can see TraitLab's predictions for how closely their personality aligns with all 16 popular personality types.

Enneagram Type Similarity
The Enneagram is a popular framework that categorizes personalities into nine interrelated types.
According to this model, each Enneagram type has characteristic patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving.
Based on your answers to the previous questions, TraitLab has estimated which of the Enneagram types is most similar to you. TraitLab's best estimate is:
Like all typologies, the Enneagram is an oversimplification, and nobody falls neatly into a single type. Instead, most personalities are better described as a unique blend of several types.
Rather than label you with a single type, TraitLab calculates your similarity to every Enneagram type. Below, you can see which of the nine types is most similar to your personality, along with a similarity score (from 0% to 100%).
Two people classified as Type 5s may still have significant differences in their personalities.
Some Enneagram practitioners use the concept of wings to distinguish an individual's personality beyond a single type. Wings are subtypes, or secondary types, that describe differences within a primary type.
For example, while your primary type may be Type 5, you may also share some characteristics of one of Type 5's neighboring types: Type 4 (The Individualist) and Type 6 (The Loyalist).
If you are more similar to Type 4, then your wing subtype would be 5w4, or Type 5 with a 4 wing, also known as The Poet.
Or, you may be more similar to Type 6. In this case, your wing subtype would be 5w6, or Type 5 with a 6 wing, also known as The Technician.
Based on your type similarities, TraitLab estimates that the wing subtype that best describes you is:

Strengths are your unique set of positive qualities that you use when you are at your best.
Each person's combination of personality traits, interests, and experiences leads them to develop their own unique set of strengths.
Below are a few of this person's most well-developed strengths. This person is typically more satisfied, enthusiastic, and engaged when a challenge lets them use some or all of these top strengths:
Judgment is the willingness to remain open-minded, consider conflicting perspectives, and carefully weigh evidence from all sides.
Love Of Learning

Your combination of interests strongly influences your preferences for different types of work. People feel more satisfied and engaged with their work when its demands match their interests.
For example, some people naturally gravitate towards highly hands-on activities that demand manipulating objects with their hands, tools, or machinery. On the other end, some feel far more engaged when working with other people through communicating, teaching, nurturing, and helping.
Below is a snapshot of this interest profile across six broad dimensions, followed by descriptions of each interest and a small sample of potential career options.
You have very strong Investigative interests.
People with higher Investigative interests enjoy tackling challenging research and analytic problems. They often describe themselves as rational, logical, and intellectual.
Highly Investigative people often like working at the intersection of things and ideas. For example, they can become deeply engrossed in understanding how systems or natural phenomena work and interact.
Intense Investigative interests usually fit well with careers that require a blend of technical skills and abstract concepts, like mathematics, sciences, and engineering.
You have moderate Artistic interests.
People with higher Artistic interests prefer working and experimenting with ideas. They are usually more comfortable with abstract concepts and creative, unstructured environments than strict processes and procedures.
Highly Artistic people also tend to be higher on Openness to Experience, and they are generally highly perceptive of emotional aspects and other abstract features. In addition, they are likely to describe themselves as imaginative, creative, and philosophical.
Intense Artistic interests fit well with careers that focus primarily on ideas and may require creativity and artistic risk-taking.
You have moderate Realistic interests.
People with higher Realistic interests enjoy hands-on, physical activities and tasks. For example, satisfying work often involves working directly with their hands or through tools or machinery to get a job done.
Highly Realistic people generally prefer working directly with things and tangible objects rather than working primarily with ideas and abstract concepts.
They are usually more comfortable taking physical risks as part of their work, and they may also enjoy adding competitive features to their daily tasks.
As a result, they often gravitate towards jobs with opportunities for working outdoors, competition, and physical risk-taking.
You have low Enterprising interests.
People with higher Enterprising interests prefer roles that involve leading, influencing, and persuading others. They are comfortable taking control, making decisions, and commanding the attention of others.
Highly Enterprising people tend to be highly assertive and skilled communicators. In addition, they are more likely to describe themselves as tough-minded, influential, and outspoken.
Intense Enterprising interests are a natural fit for domains that rely on influencing others, such as sales and marketing, or leading others, such as management and executive roles.
