  5. 5. Detailed Personality Analysis Report for Random Girl 1. Introduction to Your Personality Analysis 1.1 About this Analysis The items in the Signal Patterns Personality Patterns survey and your responses to them were developed and interpreted by a team of research psychologists. The information in this Detailed Personality Analysis is based on your pattern of responses to all of the items in the personality survey. As you read your feedback, it is important that you try not to evaluate the information in terms of "good" or "bad." All aspects of personality have advantages and disadvantages, depending on the context youre in, whom youre with, and where you are. A personality characteristic, like talkativeness, may be advantageous in one situation and disadvantageous in another. If sections of the report seem incorrect or inconsistent with your life experience, go with your personal history because no one can know you as well as you know yourself. Should you find something completely inaccurate, email us (mailto:feedback@signalpatterns.com) as we are always looking for ways to improve the survey. 1.2 Big Five Model The Personality Patterns survey is based on decades of theory and research in personality psychology on the Big Five factors of personality. These five factors are considered to form the basis of personality and evidence indicates that the factors are universal. According to the model, the five factors of personality are: Extraversion (reflects your level of sociability and enthusiasm) Agreeableness (reflects your level of friendliness and kindness) Conscientiousness (reflects your level of organization and work ethic) Emotional Stability (reflects your level of calmness and tranquility) Openness (eflects your level of creativity and curiosity) The impact that these personality factors have on peoples behavior and their daily lives is a commonly studied area of research among psychologists. In general, the results from empirical investigations indicates that personality is stable throughout life and associated with a range of important life outcomes, from academic and occupational success, to marital stability and physical health. It is important to understand that these factors do not reflect "types" of personalities but rather dimensions of personality. Just as we think about objects in terms of three dimensions (length, width, and height), the five factors allow us to think about human personality in terms of five dimensions. So a person may not be just extraverted, but also agreeable, maybe not very conscientious, perhaps emotionally unstable, and open.Prepared for Random Girl by Signal Patterns. http://signalpatterns.com (c) 2009, Signal Patterns.

  7. 7. Detailed Personality Analysis Report for Random Girl 1.4 Big Five Based Personality Facets The Big Five dimensions provide a broad overview of what someone is like. But each dimension is comprised of more specific traits, which provide a more precise depiction of someones personality. Consider, for instance, someone who is high in Openness and high in Extraversion. This person would be both sociable and creative. But the combination of high Extraversion and high Openness reveals the subtler characteristic of being witty or humorous. In contrast, suppose someone is high in Openness but low in Extraversion. The combination of these two characteristics reveals the quality of being reflective. Because people can be high or low on each of the Big Five dimensions, when we combine the different possible combinations we end up with 45 personality traits (also known as facets) from which we can compute a persons score for each Big Five factor.Prepared for Random Girl by Signal Patterns. http://signalpatterns.com (c) 2009, Signal Patterns.

  9. 9. Detailed Personality Analysis Report for Random Girl 2.1 Extraversion EXTRAVERSION is the tendency to direct ones attention externally, toward others and the environment. People who are extraverted tend to be assertive and active, energetic and confident, talkative and gregarious, and often experience positive emotions. The opposite is introversion, which is the tendency to direct ones attention inwards and to focus on ones own thoughts and feelings. People who are introverted tend to be quiet, low-key, and comfortable spending time by themselves. Assertive You behave in a confident and forceful manner, take charge of the situation, raise your hand in class, stand up for what you think is right, and lead others. Among those who have a high score on the "assertive" trait, many have jobs in which they are valued for their organizational skills as well as their talent for supervising others. This trait reflects the capacity to behave in a confident and forceful manner. Highly assertive people are likely to take charge of situations automatically, stick-up for themselves, and lead others. In contrast, less assertive people need a lot of time to do things and struggle to push themselves forward. Because they tend not to stand up for themselves, they occasionally find themselves doing things that they dont want to do. Such people may also be perceived as laid back, preferring to their own thing instead of forcing things on others, and happily working on their own, taking time, and focusing on the job at hand.Prepared for Random Girl by Signal Patterns. http://signalpatterns.com (c) 2009, Signal Patterns.

It takes a lot to rattle you, and when rattled you recover quickly and gracefully. This trait reflects the capacity to behave in a graceful and balanced manner. People who are highly poised feel comfortable around people and in unfamiliar situations. In contrast, less poised people tend to find it difficult to approach others, embarrass easily, and only feel comfortable with friends. They are unsettled and although comfortable in familiar settings with familiar people, become very self-conscious in unfamiliar environments and with people they dont know. Captivating You have a gift for organizing, motivating, and inspiring people. You dont shy away from making decisions; in fact, you thrive on it. When faced with a challenge, you know how to marshal your forces to meet your goal. This trait reflects an ability to organize and direct groups of people to pursue a particular objective. People who are captivating are able to take charge of situations by impressing others and making difficult decisions. Such people do not shy away from challenging situations, but actually thrive on them. When faced with obstacles, people with such leader-like characteristics know how to delegate and motivate others to help reach the goal. In contrast, less captivating people tend to wait for others to lead the way, dislike drawing attention to themselves, and have difficulty expressing themselves. They tend to be more self-contained and prefer minding to their own matters and avoid competitions with others.Prepared for Random Girl by Signal Patterns. http://signalpatterns.com (c) 2009, Signal Patterns.

  11. 11. Detailed Personality Analysis Report for Random Girl Extroverted You are ready to talk at the drop of a hat. Whether youre in the office or at a party, youre likely to be found gabbing away in the middle of a group of people. If you have a high score on the "extroverted" trait, you are probably among those who enjoy communicating with their friends (on the phone, on line, texting…), hanging out, and finding the best parties. This trait reflects the degree to which a person enjoys socializing with others. Generally, people who are very gregarious are likely to attend parties and social gatherings, and are comfortable starting conversations with just about anyone. Theyre extraverted people who love to talk. In contrast, people who are not gregarious try not to draw attention to themselves, tend to stay in the background, and keep their thoughts to themselves. People low in gregariousness are reserved, shy, and not particularly interested in socializing with others. As a result, such people can be difficult to get to know. Friendly You would rather hang out with others than spend time alone, and youd far rather be doing something with your friends than just sitting around. Youre happy in a crowded room, club, stadium, or auditorium. This trait reflects the extent to which a person is warm and comfortable with others. Typically, very friendly people are open about their feelings, seek contact with others, and exude a positive mood. In contrast, solitary people tend to keep others at a distance, are somewhat secretive, and are generally difficult to get to know. They are private, uncomfortable in big groups, and view excessive socializing as a waste of time.Prepared for Random Girl by Signal Patterns. http://signalpatterns.com (c) 2009, Signal Patterns.

  12. 12. Detailed Personality Analysis Report for Random Girl Accessible Youre comfortable expressing yourself in words and actions, with no self-censorship. You believe that if someone doesnt like what they see its not your problem, but theirs. A high score on the "accessible" trait suggests that you have a lot of friends, socialize often, and enjoy rap/hip-hop music. This trait reflects a propensity to openly express ones thoughts and behave freely. People who are self-disclosing tend to be playful, expressive, and are able to just let go. Such people are comfortable expressing themselves and believe that if anyone doesnt like something about them, its the other persons problem. In contrast, less accessible people are inclined to interact with others in a formal manner, seldom joke around, and rarely disclose their intimate thoughts to others. Theyre private and dont really see the need to share their thoughts and feelings with everyone around them. Someone who is very private is content being at home, instead of at parties, clubs, or crowded places. Independent You are comfortable being by yourself, and would often rather be alone than, say, in a crowded club. You dont generally succumb to group pressure unless the group wants to do the same thing that you want to do. Independent people seek quiet, dont like crowded events, and tend to go their own way. In contrast, people who are less independent enjoy being with large groups of people, would rather not be alone, and enjoy being on the go. Social people are also likely to be wherever the fun is at.Prepared for Random Girl by Signal Patterns. http://signalpatterns.com (c) 2009, Signal Patterns. All Rights Reserved. Patents Pending. 12
  13. 13. Detailed Personality Analysis Report for Random Girl Authoritative You have found that others will often do what you want them to do, without significantly pushing back. Youve also discovered that many people will accept harsher criticism from you than they would take from anyone else. Many of those with a high score on the "authoritative" trait hold leadership positions in industry. This trait reflects a propensity to elicit strong reactions in people. Authoritative individu-als are assertive and say things that may offend others, express criticism, and boast about their talents. They tend to expect others to do what they want without a challenge. In contrast, less authoritative people tend to steer clear of confrontations, try not to come across as pushy, and usually display a certain amount of caution while interacting with others. Such people are acquiescent, feel comfortable with themselves and dont feel the need to influence others. Outspoken You like to talk. Luckily, you always have something to say, you tell a good story, and people generally enjoy listening to you. Its no wonder that youre often the center of attention. This trait reflects the tendency to talk frequently. Outspoken people have a tendency to dominate conversations, speak loudly, and enjoy being the center of attention. Such peo-ple are outspoken, good storytellers, and people generally enjoy listening to them, perhaps because theyre good at keeping others in the conversation. In contrast, people who are not talkative usually speak softly and feel uncomfortable interacting with others and talking about themselves. This discreetness prevents them from sharing their thoughts unless they have something important to say and feel secure that others are truly interested.Prepared for Random Girl by Signal Patterns. http://signalpatterns.com (c) 2009, Signal Patterns.

  18. 18. Detailed Personality Analysis Report for Random Girl Irritable You have your own problems to deal with, and little patience for those who need help to get through the rough spots. Going out of your way to lend a hand not only takes time away from your own pursuits, it ultimately harms those youre "helping" by insulating them from the harsh realities of life. This trait reflects the ability to provide emotional and physical care for another.

Such people do what is necessary without demanding that all the details line up perfectly.

  34. 34. Detailed Personality Analysis Report for Random Girl 3. How Your Personality Compares to Others In addition to knowing which personality characteristics are most distinctive of a person, its useful to know how one compares to other people. For example, creativity and recklessness might be two traits that define the core of someones personality, but compared to other people that person may not be especially creative or reckless. Thus, to develop a clearer sense of your personality we provide detailed information about how you compare to other people similar to you in terms of age and gender. Comparing Personality Scores To develop an understanding of how your personality compares to the personalities of others, we compared your responses to the Personality Patterns survey to a set of personality norms derived from a pool ofover 50,000 people who also completed the survey. Although that is a large sample for establishing personality norms, you should be aware that the sample of respondents may not be the most representative sample. It is conceivable that people who choose to take personality tests on the Internet are slightly different in certain respects than the average person. For that reason, the way to think about your normative comparisons is that they reflect how you compare to other people who have taken the Personality Patterns survey. This section is organized by each of the Big Five factors. For each factor, youll see your traits and how you compare to others by gender and age range. Specifically you will see: Your top traits Top traits of your gender Comparative trait analysis relative to your gender Top traits of your age range Comparative trait analysis relative to your age rangePrepared for Random Girl by Signal Patterns. http://signalpatterns.com (c) 2009, Signal Patterns.
