The big five

notes - sketches

Hi diary.
Here are my results in the big five aspects scale.

I. Agreeableness: Moderately Low

32nd percentile

Agreeableness has two aspects:
Compassion: Typical or Average (48/100).
Politeness: Low (21/100).

I thought I would score higher than this -- surprised!

II. Conscientiousness: Very High

95th percentile

Conscientiousness has two aspects:
Industriousness: High (88/100).
Orderliness: Very High (95/100).

This came out higher than I expected. Golly, orderliness looks a bit much.

IV. Neuroticism: Very Low

10th percentile

Trait neuroticism is made up of the aspects:
Withdrawal: Low (19/100).
Volatility: Very Low (7/100).

This was a big fat surprise. I thought I would score high.
I mistakenly equated neuroticism with my tendency to fuss about sorting chaos.
Perhaps I'm just eating more lard?
Sunny side up!

80th percentile

Spot on in the aspects.
I am reminded of Scott Adams' lesson on the three types of people in the world.
