First, please take the following personality assessment (The Big 5):

The Big Five Personality assessment is arguably the most widely accepted measure of personality broken into smaller subscales (OCEAN; Openness to experience, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism**). These traits are neither good nor bad, and everyone lands on a continuum on the 5 subscales. Answer the following questions on the Big 5 (and the personality chapter in Rathus):

  1. After reading the descriptions of your traits how well do you feel they fit your personality? What aspects of the test do not work as well?
  2. How does the Big 5 differ from the other personality theories discussed in your text (psychoanalytic theory; humanistic theory; Big 3; etc). Compare/contrast the Big 5 traits with one other personality theory mentioned in your text.
  3. What aspects of personality does the Big 5 overlook? Would you add anything else as a subscale? 
  4. Finally, take a look at these researchers’ explanations regarding neuroticism as “mental noise.” How does “mental noise” differ from the Big 5 definition of neuroticism?
