Personality Summaries & Analysis
I am said to be extraverted, sensing, feeling, and perceiving. My results consider me to be "The Performer." They say that this typer of person is very literal and concrete. It is said that I am a lover of people and being a part of new experiences. Inter-personal skills are absolutely very present, and very strong, peacemaking is usually present in this type of person. Performers are very sympathetic people which is an absolute fact about myself. They are always striving to find out what is wrong with others, and to develop a solution for this said problem. They are not the best at giving advice, but absolutely rock in the area of providing practical care. These types of people love to have fun, and tend to place their focus on that rather than their duties or assignments that truly need completion. These types of people are entertainers, life is just a straight party in their eyes. Generally they do not avoid certain people, they are accepting to all. Deep distaste for others can arise if someone crosses this type of person's path in an unfavorable way. This person gets overwhelmed with stress and negative thoughts, small excuses are normally used to battle these pressing issues. They are more hands on learners, who avoid reading out of the book to enhance their knowledge. Interaction with others is key in the life of the performer for their success. They usually like fine foods, and the more "finer things in life" overall. Problems rarely arise from a person like this because of their innate ability to mesh with a team of others. These people are just always looking for fun, and the upside in life, but must still remember to have some fear of what could arise from their actions.
The Big Five
My Big Five results were interesting to me. The test revealed that I am more of a close-minded thinker than I truly believe myself to be. It considers me to be somewhat conventional and places me in the 20th percentile for the Openness to Experience/Intellect section. The test revealed that I am more disorganized rather than conscientious. The test claims that I tend to do things haphazardly, and places me in the 35th percentile of the Conscientiousness section. I am said to be slightly more extraverted than introverted. I am said to be neither particularly social or reserved, and I am place in the 59th percentile of the Extraversion section. I am more agreeable than disagreeable. It is said that I tend to consider the feelings of others, and I am placed in the 74th percentile of the Agreeableness section. I am said to be slightly more calm/relaxed than nervous/high-strung. I am not particularly nervous, nor calm, and I am placed in the 43rd percentile of the Neuroticism section.
The Humanist Theory is characterized by the attempt to move toward congruence with who you are, what you perceive yourself to be, and what you aspire to be. Carl Rogers is the developer of this theory and illustrates it through the use of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. My personality could be described using this theory due to the fact that my results illustrate that the first 4-5 stages on Maslow's Hierarchy are pretty much fulfilled, so I spend my time searching for peace and understanding with others in order to achieve my ideal self, and satisfy my existing needs.
The Behaviorist Theory, introduced by B.F. Skinner, is characterized primarily by learning, and the effects of surrounding environments. My results could be analyzed by this theory due to the fact that my results reveal that am more of myself and excel socially in a group environment. Learning can be put to the side for myself so I can focus more on having a fun time and enjoy myself, but when learning is taking place, it is done more hands on rather than just simply reading out of a book. Both tests results agree that I am a lot more extraverted than introverted, which can be used to describe how I can become dependent on guidance while learning and tend to trip up while studying on my own.
The Social-Cognitive Theory, developed by both Albert Bandura and Julian Rotter, is characterized by how immediate social interaction affects peoples acquisition of knowledge. My results can be described using this theory beginning with Bandura's ideal of reciprocal interaction. This idea is described by how we act on the environment to see interaction and stimulation, which is entirely present in my results and is shown when it is said that I search for a group setting for agreement, amusement, and seek to entertain the entire group. Also self efficacy is present in my results when it is said that when someone doubts or crosses my path I struggle to forgive them because I am so headstrong about my opinion or ability. The environment controls the mood I will be in, as shown in the External Locus of Control.
The Psychoanalytic Theory, introduce by Sigmund Freud, focuses primarily on human's unconscious thought and its effects on development and personality. My results can be explained using this theory beginning with the fact that my id (what i was born with and utilize to meet my basic needs) is my innate ability to be extraverted. I seek interaction and understanding of my surrounding to satisfy my needs. I would consider my ego to be my serious want to not negatively interfere with my environment and the needs of others, so that my id (extraversion) is satisfied without conflict. My superego is my continuous want to approach peoples issues and address their needs in order to avoid a negative environment. This allows me to expand my care for others to them by analyzing the situation and formulating what is right and wrong to better the situation.
Jung's Analytic Theory and Alder's Individual Psychology (both Neo-Freudian) both focus heavily on the activity of the unconscious, but expand in separate ways usually relating to society or culture. My innate ability to be an extravert, as shown in my results, illustrates how I strive to satisfy society to satisfy myself, and enhance my feeling of superiority. By wanting to always be surrounded by others, I have a good sense of right and wrong due to my collective unconscious that determines this during these interactions.
The Trait Theory, introduced by Gordon Allport, is organized by five categories. My results can be explained using this theory beginning with the fact that the results illustrate that I am more disorganized rather than organized. The results show that I do things haphazardly, and places me in the 35th percentile of the Conscientiousness section. The results show that I am more of an agreeable person, rather than disagreeable. This is shown by stating that I consider the feelings of others, and I am placed in the 74th percentile of the Agreeableness section. The results state that I am slightly more calm rather than full of anxiety, and I am placed in the 43rd percentile of the Neuroticism section. My results demonstrate that I am more of a practical thinker. They consider me to be somewhat conventional, and I am placed in the 20th percentile for the Openness section. My results show that I am slightly more extraverted than introverted. I am considered neither particularly social or retiring, and I am place in the 59th percentile of the Extraversion section. With the analysis of both tests it would be said that my cardinal trait would be extraversion. My central trait would most likely be my consistent patients, as shown in my agreeable section. A secondary trait as seen as a result of these tests could be the deep distaste that I can develop if someone crosses my path the wrong way.
