Reflection of Results
After completing the personality test I was given my results (Results can be found on reference page).

The first category is Extraversion. This category is about introverts and extroverts according to the results page. The higher the number is in this category the more extrovert you are. I scored a 4.1 on the 5.0 scale. I have always been very outgoing but in certain situations I am very introverted. The next category is Conscientiousness, which is about work ethic and order according to the results page. I received a 4.6. I believe that this is very accurate not only because I take pride in work but also often time my supervisors tell me how great I am with getting my work done. One of the few categories that I disagree with is Neuroticism. Neuroticism is a category, which is based on experience of negative emotions as according to the results page. According to the “IPI Big-Five Factor Markers” I received a 2.9. I feel many negative emotions often so I believe that score should be higher. It is also medically proven that I feel negative emotions a lot because I have been diagnosed with depression. The other category I disagree with in my results is the agreeableness category. The category of agreeableness includes pleasing others as according to the results page. I received a 3.9 but I believe I should have scored lower because I genuinely do not really care about making others happy but rather completing task at hand. The final category tested is Openness. This category is
