What do the scores tell me?In order to provide you with a meaningful comparison, the scores you received have been converted to "percentile scores." This means that your personality score can be directly compared to another group of people who have also taken this personality test.The percentile scores show you where you score on the five personality dimensions relative to the comparison sample of other people who have taken this test on-line. In other words, your percentile scores indicate the percentage of people who score less than you on each dimension. For example, your Extraversion percentile score is 31, which means that about 31 percent of the people in our comparison sample are less extraverted than you -- in other words, you are rather introverted. Keep in mind that these percentile scores are relative to our particular sample of people. Thus, your percentile scores may differ if you were compared to another sample (e.g., elderly British people).Where can I learn more?If you'd like to learn more about personality psychology, take a look at these links to other personality sites on the web.

This report consists of four sections. The first section briefly explains the theoretical background of the test. Your personality profile is discussed in the second section based on your scores for the five personality traits of the Big Five theory. In the third section, whether combinations of the five personality traits result in additional key personality traits is reviewed. The last section explains the meaning of the test and how the results can be interpreted or used.

Professional literature also refers to these as the Big Five. These are the five traits that can be found in numerous personality tests. Some personality tests consist of six, seven or even more personality traits. In these tests, one of the five main traits is often subdivided. As you read the results of your test, you will understand exactly what each personality trait stands for.
To one extent or another, all of the traits listed above affect the way people deal with or respond to others. High, low or average scores on personality traits all have their own advantages and disadvantages depending on the situation or the people involved in the interaction. An accommodating person, for example, will be liked by many people. By contrast, a critical...
