The author of this paper relates that after taking the Five Factor Personality Test, he was surprised at the accuracy of the test in profiling him the way he sees himself. The author reveals his scores on the five factors of extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism and openness, and professes the belief that he has been strongly influenced by his family.

From the Paper:

"My score on the extraversion factor was about average. This factor refers to preferences and behaviors in social situations. I believe it is accurate to say that I am generally comfortable in most social situations and yet I prefer that I am not the center of attention. Both of these qualities have served me well in the workplace. In my position, I am often called upon to meet new people and talk to them about the work we do through our organization. I have to interact with diverse individuals and my ability to do so comfortably has netted me praise from my superiors, who know they can count on me to present a positive image. The fact that I do not like to be the center of attention allows me to very comfortably let others do the talking, whether it is a co-worker or a client. Although I believe I have valuable input for conversations, I do not believe I should always be speaking and making my opinions known. In this instance, "average" means "balance," and that can be a very good thing in a business situation.
"My score on the agreeableness factor was relatively high. According to the test, I am trusting, friendly and cooperative; I believe my colleagues would agree. I tend to believe that most people have good intentions and no hidden agenda."
