This paper discusses how the author's big 5 personality test resulted in a very accurate measure of his true personality. It briefly examines some of the author's traits that were ranked such as extraversion, neuroticism and agreeableness. In conclusion the author attempts to determine which of the major personality theorists has the best explanation for how his personality has developed.
From the Paper:"Although there are traits of my personality that are not necessarily desirable, there is nothing that I would change about my personality. I think that I work very well with my personality traits to create a happy environment for myself. For example, my high degree of neuroticism makes me worried about attention to detail, which I think contributes to my reliability and ability to get things done. Likewise, I think that the fact that I am uncomfortable in social interactions with strangers pushes me to make a greater effort to try to make others comfortable when they are the new person in a situation. Furthermore, the fact that I know that I have a tendency to be critical of other people forces me to ignore my first impressions of people and make an effort to get to know someone before judging him or her. Therefore, I would not change my personality. "
