Personality Report for ME 2016

  1. 1. Personality Report for: Michael Edwards Introduction [NOTE: IF YOU ARE VIEWING THIS AS A WEB DOCUMENT (HTML), WE RECOMMEND YOU PRINT IT 'LANDSCAPE' FOR THE BEST RESULTS.] Decades of research have shown that all personality traits can be grouped into 5 main dimensions, which provide a framework for understanding and explaining important individual differences in people. This report is a description of your personality based on this framework, which is called "The Big Five Model". When reviewing your report, you should keep the following in mind: There are and were no right or wrong answers to the survey questions, and this report does not describe skills, abilities, or competencies, but personality traits we all possess to one degree or another. The Big Five Model is one of the most widely accepted theoretical frameworks for understanding personality. Feedback in this report was generated from your responses to the survey. If you were to re-take the survey and answer differently, the feedback would change. This is not psychoanalysis or written therapy. Its focus is to explain aspects of your personality to you, and to potential employers. Insight into your personality can lead to more appropriate and rewarding career choices. Personality profile is one of the important criteria used by employers to search the database for job candidates. End of page 1
  2. 2. Personality Snapshot Following is an overview of the 5 main personality dimensions. Each is made up of a pair of opposite styles, or ways that people can be characterized or described. This creates a personality continuum - a line on which everyone can be marked at one point or another along that line. The arrowed bar graphic, below, illustrates where you fall in each continuum from the center point. The longer the bar in one direction, the stronger your preference toward one particular style. If the bar points slightly in both directions it means you are just as comfortable using one style as the other, probably choosing whichever you feel a situation calls for. Sociability How much you like being around others Adaptability How you plan and organize yourself Interpersonal Style How you relate to and interact with others Curiosity
  3. 3. How much you seek out new experiences Temperament How you naturally respond to stress and pressure About the Personality Factors Each of the 5 dimensions is like a folder that holds a set of specific traits that tend to occur together in people. When reading the in-depth descriptions that follow, please understand that just as no two sets of fingerprints are identical, so no two extraverts, for example, are exactly alike. Our feedback is also not meant to suggest that everyone will always be exactly as we describe them, or that, for example, an extravert can never exhibit introverted behavior. These are tendencies and generalizations derived from research. End of page 2 Sociability How much you like being around others
  4. 4. - Introspective - Reserved - Enjoy one on one - Enjoy reflecting - Low key - Expressive - Gregarious - Enjoy groups - Enjoy discussing - Enthusiastic Fairly Extraverted Your responses indicate that you are Fairly Extraverted. As an extravert, you are likely to make an effort to be around people much of the time. You tend to share your opinions, thoughts, and feelings easily with others, and this makes you somewhat of an “open book.― Your talkative, expressive, outgoing nature makes it relatively easy for you to meet people. If an opportunity for excitement came along, you would be one of the first to say yes! In a work setting, you tend to enjoy collaborative and stimulating atmospheres where you can generate lots of enthusiasm. This type of environment allows you the chance to think out loud and bounce your thoughts off others while you build your ideas and reach conclusions. When you get excited about an idea you communicate with energy, passion, and conviction. This enthusiasm is often contagious and probably makes you an attractive candidate for leadership positions. All in all, you like being around others and prefer environments where you can continuously create, build, and maintain social relationships. End of page 3
  5. 5. Adaptability How you plan and organize yourself - Leaves plans open - Go with the flow - Pressure-prompted - Open ended - Flexible - Methodical - Stay on schedule - Start early - Like to plan - Level headed Fairly Structured Your responses indicate that you are Fairly Structured. Having things orderly and controlled is important to you. Because you tend to be prepared and prefer to plan things out in advance, changes and last- minute surprises can be frustrating. You probably get started on tasks in advance of deadlines, and you are likely to establish some routines to support your desire for order. It is fairly easy for you to stay focused on tasks because you are self-disciplined. It takes a lot to distract you when you are working on something. In a work setting, your dedication to quality and conscientiousness leads people to depend on you, because they know you can be counted on to get the job done. You probably set your standards high
  6. 6. because you know you have the commitment needed to accomplish the goal. Having something close to perfect is important to you, so you probably continuously refine and polish until something is just right. Structured and organized work settings probably offer the best outlet for your planning skills to shine. All in all, you like living with schedules and order; if there is no plan, you might feel uneasy. In your world, you have a place for everything and have everything in its place. End of page 4 Interpersonal Style How you relate to and interact with others - Questioning - Confronts - Expresses opinions - Skeptical - Tough
  7. 7. - Cooperative - Seeks harmony - Reserves opinions - Accepting - Tolerant Fairly Direct Your responses indicate that you are Fairly Direct. As a direct individual, you likely relate and interact with others in a rational straight-forward manner. Logical thinking and objective analysis probably guide your approach to communication and decision-making. At first, you can be skeptical about the intentions and actions of others and, as a result, showing sympathy for the problems or feelings of others might be difficult for you. In a work setting, you can be passionate about your opinions and ideas and often share them with confidence and without hesitation. When you set your mind on something, it is unlikely you will change it. If challenged, you are up for debate and rarely back down even in intense situations. The bottom line is probably your main focus, and you can be counted on to make the tough decisions. As a result, you often overlook interpersonal niceties to stay on course. In a team environment, you likely speak the truth no matter what. If someone’s feelings get hurt in the process, you might feel bad, but you understand that business is business. All in all, you are likely a rational and tough-minded individual. You have a bold, competitive, and forceful interpersonal approach. End of page 5
  8. 8. Curiosity How much you seek out new experiences - Practical - Realistic - Leave it alone - Preserves - Likes details Nonconforming - Imaginative - Change it - Explores - "Big Picture" Fairly Novel Your responses indicate that you are Fairly Novel. As a novel individual, you are likely drawn to new experiences and will sometimes explore new ways of doing things, even if current ones are working just fine. Because you are relatively open to possibilities you probably have broad interests and are curious about many different topic areas. Change does not bother you. In fact you probably embrace it, because it paves the way for experiencing and trying something different. In a work setting, your ability to easily grasp abstract intangible information and use it to envision what is needed for the future makes you a valuable addition to any team. You are probably most productive when your creative juices can flow. Brainstorming and coming up with insights and imaginative original
  9. 9. ideas is how you enjoy spending your time. As a result, innovative and stimulating work environments are probably most appealing to you. All in all, you are an imaginative and original thinker. You are resourceful in dealing with change and unusual experiences. End of page 6 Temperament How you naturally respond to stress and pressure - Excited - Passionate - Reactive - Sensitive - Responsive - Calm - Composed - Resilient - Unflappable - Relaxed Very Steady
  10. 10. Your responses indicate that you are a Very Steady person. Ups and downs do not seem to unsettle you. Logic helps you keep your emotions in check, and helps you handle difficult times, and decide what to do. This provides a buffer between you and stress and helps you cope. Some people will envy you for this ability, though you might not experience some of the highs as intensely as those people do. When you do get angry or frustrated, you tend to get over it quickly. Worrying about things you cannot control makes little or no sense to you. In a conflict between your head and your heart, your head gets a head start. End of page 7 Milwaukee Career Network Final Thoughts We sincerely hope that you have enjoyed taking our survey and receiving and reading the feedback on it. We trust that it gives you some insight into yourself and helps you in your job search. Some of it may be a surprise, but we suspect that if you filled out the survey openly and honestly, you will see yourself in these paragraphs. We believe you are more likely to be satisfied and happy in life, and therefore more productive, if you are working at something that you find interesting, and doing the work in an environment that is compatible with your personality. Whilst we understand that personality is not everything, and that personality traits are not the same as intelligence, talent, education, training, or aptitude, we do consider the personality fit an important piece of the job search puzzle, which will help indicate to an employer how well you will fit into a job, a team, and a company. Background The Big Five Model is probably the most researched model of personality, and there exists a level of conscensus within the area of psychology that the model is the best current description of the structure of personality. The survey you took and this feedback report are based largely on the Model, and we went to a lot of effort to preserve the Big Five's theoretical framework in the design of our survey and report content.
  11. 11. The survey itself was created, tested, and validated by an established PhD in the field of Instrumentation Design and Test Development.
