    Default Big Five

    I have just taken my first big five personality test, and these are my results.


    <a href="http://www.outofservice.com/bigfive/results/?oR=0.75&amp;cR=0.417&amp;eR=0.156&amp;aR=0.528&am p;nR=0.344">I'm a O59-C17-E3-A22-N18 Big Five!!</a>

    I personally do not thing that they are accurate. They are inaccurate somewhat, especially when compared to my MBTI test results.

    INTP
    Introverted Intuitive Thinking Perceiving
    Strength of the preferences %
    100 75 44 28

    INTPs are very logical, analytical people who like to think about concepts and ideas, searching for the perfect solution to problems. They are detached, intellectual, and complex, always looking for different challenges. INTPs are very independent, skeptical and often brilliant. They are able to stay calm, even in the most difficult situations. INTPs are intolerant of redundancy and slow people, and are bored by simple issues. They are likely to ignore any rules, people or tasks they consider trivial. One thing they often consider trivial is emotion, their's and other's. Because of this they don't realize that other people need praise and reassurance, and INTPs are usually not good with relationships. They are intensely private, and very hard to get to know. INTPs are highly selective about with whom they will share their ideas, and they won't share their deepest feelings with anyone. They dislike and distrust authority, only respecting knowledge.
    INTPs are on a constant search to understand everything, and learn everything they can. They learn anything they decide is worth the effort at an incredible speed, and are able to apply the knowledge to other areas immediately. INTPs have a natural skill for finding flaws in projects and logic, and at finding solutions to the problems. They are good at thinking up ideas, and starting projects, but they often lose interest or ignore the details of it, and it doesn't end as well as they had hoped. INTPs work best alone, and when in groups they seem detached and rarely contribute. They have creative imaginations and see possibilities where others don't. INTPs have a global perspective, and are more interested in theories than their practical applications.
    They are not very good at sharing their complex thoughts and ideas, and in conversation they will often pause to think. INTPs are not very appearance-conscious and often look slightly disheveled. They also are not generally well-understood, and feel slightly isolated.

    My big five results put me at an aloof, close minded asshole. That is more like my ISTJ brother.

    People, please at least post your MBTi and big five test results side by side, and say which one is more accurate and why. Having a description of what you are like according to each one would be nice.

    Well I'm not closed-minded, but I can be an asshole at times.
    Like your family, my brother is the closed-minded one, and an asshole!


    Mine:
    O=80 You enjoy having novel experiences and seeing things in new ways.TRUE
    C=69 You are well-organized, and are reliable. TRUE
    E=89 You are extremely outgoing, social, and energetic TRUE
    A=10 You find it easy to criticize others (LOL) GUILTY, I mean TRUE.
    N=55 You aren't particularly nervous, nor calm. TRUE

    Actually, just looking at my scores, anyone could assign an MBTI type to it easily.

    However, I'm no fan of MBTI for too many reasons to list.
    I think Xander said it best, "I may be INTP but INTP isn't me"
    Great line!

    Hey , don't be so concerned about a score.
    Hold fast and true to who you are, no matter what any blasted test says of you.


    Take Care.

    First of all the two tests are measuring different things. I/E for Big 5 is not the exactly the same as I/E in MBTI. The rest of them are different too.

    There's a moderate correlation between Big 5 and MBTI types but that's moderate... r = 0.3-0.4? Can't recall. Which means you can't expect the two to be the same. It only make sense since they're measuring different things.

    And looking at your numbers, they do fit INTP... and definitely not SJ

    Openness 59 - average leaning towards high
    Conscientiousness 17 - rather low, Conscientiousness is correlated with J... low score => P
    Extroversion 3 - extremely low, corresponds to I
    Agreeableness 22 - low, slightly associated with F... low score => T
    Neuroticism 18 - low, emotionally stable, again neuroticism is slightly associated with F (emotionality)... lower score => T

    I don't see how that doesn't fit with INTP.

    Okay, I think I'm an ISFP and my results were O4-C6-E1-A17-N76. Does that even go with ISFP? Anyway, I like MBTI better because the Big Five test looks like it relates things negatively. idk

    Also, the big five is innacurate in its own terminology. It is saying that introverts are unhappy.

    Low on Agreeable and high on Neuroticism mean F? I got a very low score of 10 on Agreeableness and a high 90 on Neuroticism. I'm a surefire T. Disagreed, this is separate from the MBTI, it doesn't directly relate to it.

    I don't see anything in conflict here.

    Nah, high Agreeable correlates with F, and Neuroticism probably has a slight correlation with F, too. Here's a good table of believable correlations (scroll down to "Correlations"/"Big Five").

    MBTI is never consistent for me, but Big Five is. I usually score highest on Openness or Agreeableness, which fits well with the title of Benevolent Inventor.

    Here are my scores this time around:

    Openness to Experience/Intellect
    High scorers tend to be original, creative, curious, complex; Low scorers tend to be conventional, down to earth, narrow interests, uncreative.
    You enjoy having novel experiences and seeing things in new ways. (Your percentile: 80)

    Conscientiousness
    High scorers tend to be reliable, well-organized, self-disciplined, careful; Low scorers tend to be disorganized, undependable, negligent.
    You are well-organized, and are reliable. (Your percentile: 74)

    Extraversion
    High scorers tend to be sociable, friendly, fun loving, talkative; Low scorers tend to be introverted, reserved, inhibited, quiet.
    You are neither particularly social or reserved. (Your percentile: 59)

    Agreeableness
    High scorers tend to be good natured, sympathetic, forgiving, courteous; Low scorers tend to be critical, rude, harsh, callous.
    You are good-natured, courteous, and supportive. (Your percentile: 96)

    Neuroticism
    High scorers tend to be nervous, high-strung, insecure, worrying; Low scorers tend to be calm, relaxed, secure, hardy.
    You probably remain calm, even in tense situations. (Your percentile: 7)

    I find this test to be as useful as the IQ. Not my favorite.

    Where on earth did you get introverts are unhappy from?

    Introversion in big 5 has very little to do with emotions (that's neuroticism). It has to do with your preference to do things by yourself or for group activity.
