Overview
In this module, you will read about trait theory and take the Big Five Personality Test. When taking this test, consider using your emotional intelligence skills both as you complete it and when you are interpreting your results. This test is about providing you with more information about yourself and is not intended to promote any negative self-talk.
Each of the five dimensions is measured on a continuum. You can gain information and insight into your personality if you score low, high, or in the middle of each of the dimensions. For example, scoring low on neuroticism means you are more emotionally stable than if you scored high. However, if you score in the middle, that also provides valuable information because you exhibit some characteristics of each side.
