Happy to serve you with further in-depth insights into your personality having been recently awarded the qualification of psychometric test user occupational ability and personality accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the European Federation of Psychologists' Associations (EFPA). It includes the qualification in the NEO-PI-3 personality inventory which has been developed by Costa & McCrae and is being published by Hogrefe, one of the leading publishers of psychometric assessments. The NEO-PI-3 is a normative trait personality assessment based on decades of factor analytic research on the structure of personality, which has been consistently replicated across cultures. The NEO-PI-3 is the most recent edition of a series of NEO inventories dating back to the mid-1980s. It is considered to be “the gold standard” in personality assessment and is often used as a comparison in the development of new tools. The assessment measures the five broad domains of personality (the “Big Five”). These five personality traits and respective six facets of each of the five traits measured by this assessment are:
Extraversion (the extent to which the individual invests energy into various aspects of the external environment), with the Extraversion facets Friendliness, Sociability, Assertiveness, Pace, Excitement Seeking, and Positive Outlook.
Agreeableness (the role the individual adopts in relationships that affects the extent to which their decisions and actions are typically influenced by the perspectives, concerns and opinions of others), with the Agreeableness facets Trust, Straightforwardness, Altruism, Compliance, Modesty, and Compassion.
Openness (the tendency to proactively seek new experience for its own sake), with the Openness facets Openness to Imagination, Openness to Aesthetics, Openness to Feelings, Openness to New Activities, Openness to Ideas, and Openness to Values.
Conscientiousness (strength of purpose and drive to goal accomplishment), with the Conscientiousness facets Self-Belief, Order, Sense of Duty, Achievement Striving, Self-Discipline, and Deliberation.
Emotional Reactivity or Neuroticism (reported frequency and intensity of various emotions associated with discomfort or threat), with the Neuroticism facets Apprehension, Frustration, Despondency, Self-Consciousness, Impulsiveness, and Stress Proneness.
The Big Five personality traits are sometimes abbreviated as OCEAN (Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, Neuroticism).
