Many of us have a good idea what it mans to be extraverted or agreeable at an intuitive level, but we are interested in what form those descriptions take at the most basic level. One theory on this subject argues that there are five basic dimensions of personality -- Extraversion, Emotional Stability, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, and Openness to Experience. When you take this test, you will receive a report summarizing your standing in the Big-5 dimensions. This report is generated dynamically and is different for everybody taking the test. If you want to learn more about the Big-5 model and want to know where you might stand in that model, you should take this test.
