Assessment – The Big Five
Organizational Behavior-MAN 3240-7035D
Some people are calm and relaxed, and others are regularly nervous and anxious;
some are warm and friendly, while others are hostile and aggressive; some people are
organized, neat, and fastidious, while others are disorganized, sloppy, and scattered. So
that said I have discovered my big five as above the norm in conscientiousness and
extraversion. I am equal to the norm in agreeableness and openness to experience. And
finally, I am under the norm in neuroticism.
For conscientiousness I am above the norm as stated above. This is more
efficient/organized vs. easy going/careless. Meaning I have more of a tendency to show
self-discipline, act dutifully, and aim for achievement; planned rather than spontaneous
For agreeableness I am equal to the norm as stated above. This is
friendly/compassionate vs. cold/unkind. I have equal tendency to be compassionate and
cooperative rather than suspicious and antagonistic towards others.
For neuroticism I am under the norm as stated above. This is sensitive/nervous
vs. secure/confident. I am below the tendency to experience unpleasant emotions easily,
such as anger, anxiety, depression, or vulnerability.
For openness to experience I am equal to the norm as stated above. This is
inventive/curious vs. consistent/cautious. I am equal for appreciation for art, emotion,
adventure, unusual ideas, curiosity, and variety of experience.
For extraversion I am above the norm as stated above. This is outgoing/energetic
vs. solitary/reserved. I am above this category for energy, positive emotions, surgency,
and the tendency to seek stimulation in the company of others.
I see for my self that in the extraversion I have surgency. This trait reflects
preference for, and behavior in, social situations. People high in extraversion are
energetic and seek out the company of others.

we tend to interact with others. People high in agreeableness tend to be trusting, friendly
I see for my self in the conscientiousness I have will or dependability. This trait
reflects how organized and persistent we are in pursuing our goals. High scorers are
methodical, well organized and dutiful.
I see for my self in the neuroticism this trait reflects the tendency to experience
negative thoughts and feelings. Low…
