T-F .19 .02 .44 -.15 .06
J-P .15 .30 -.06 -.49 .11
Seeing in the table (also accessible in Myers-Briggs Type Indicator - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, F correlates about as much with big five's A as it does with E,N and C (with the last one, negatively).

Hmmm, are we looking at the same table? I see a correlation of .44 for F to A+, but everything else is under .2...

Hmm, ment to say as much as they all put together. Correlations can't be just simply summed up, but as all the OCEAN variables are made statistically indendent, the total effect is close to having all them summed up, if I remember correctly.

I wish having finished the course in statistics :rolli:

Any idea what the p-values are?

I don't know about those, but most personality research is reported at 0.01 or 0.001. Without looking at the source, I'd assume it's one of those.

Bah, I looked it up - here's the "big daddy" that keeps getting referenced, including the ones at wikipedia.

The easiest way of thinking about influence is to square the number to get an idea of the influence it has. As such, 0.2 (4%) is 1/4 the effect of 0.4 (16%). As such, the influence for the 3 positive traits is roughly 19% to roughly 4%. Even in the case of J/P to Conscientiousness, where there is a 0.3 to openness, it's still dominated by the (-)0.49 (ie: 9% to ~25%).

Ok that's how it was, thanks!

7. O - 95
C - 2
E - 18
A - 83
N - 84

Hmmm, makes sense, most of it. The N part doesn't quite fit. I wouldn't say I'm insecure with myself, quite the oppostie, but I still kind of worry sometimes.

8. I'm a O88-C64-E42-A57-N97

Openness to Experience/Intellect
You enjoy having novel experiences and seeing things in new ways. (Your percentile: 88)

Conscientiousness
You are well-organized, and are reliable. (Your percentile: 64)

Extraversion

Agreeableness
You are neither extremely forgiving nor irritable. (Your percentile: 57)

Neuroticism
You are a generally anxious person and tend to worry about things. (Your percentile: 97)

9. Openness to Experience/Intellect . . . 53
Conscientiousness . . . 17
Extraversion . . . 9
Agreeableness . . . 44
Neuroticism . . . 49

10. O: 90
