Before taking my Clinical Psychology class at UCI, I had little to no experience with personality tests. From my experience in working in teams for a job or a task, many times I have been described as a guy who likes to take the lead and also likes to have a clear goal to achieve. After taking the NEO FFI, I now have a better understanding of how my personality. My results were the following: for Neuroticism level was low with a score was of 16. According to the score interpretation, this means “Secure, hardy, and generally relaxed even under stressful circumstances.” For Extraversion, my level was high with a score of 32.

My openness level say I am always interested in new things and I agree with it because many times I go out of my way to try a new item at a restaurant or to learn about how other people feel about things I am interested in. I think out of all my results, agreeableness was the most accurate. I am a person who is really proud of what I do. I am skeptical about many things so when someone tells me news or interesting facts, I like to make sure that they are true. In addition, I feel like I can find a better or more efficient way of doing things even when following instructions seems to be easier. Conscientiousness was the only result I had some trouble fully agreeing with because I can be very well not organized, however, I try my best not to be careless. When it comes to keeping things
