Psychology Profile

A Big 5 Personality Test, is a core psychology test designed to help a person understand fundamentally what kind of profession is best for them based on their inherant personality.

I undertook a test designed by Jordan Peterson, a Canadian clinical psychologist. He is a professor for the University of Toronto, and has authored or co-authored more than a hundred academic papers. If you would like to take the test I took to compare yourself, the test is available here on his website.

This psychological profile is split into 5 areas, which have 2 sections each. A higher percentage means the trait exhibits more in the personality, a lower percentage means the person uses this feature less in their psyche.

Click on each section to get a breakdown for what it means to have the traits at these percentages. The breakdown descriptions are split into Exceptionally High, Very High, Moderately High, High, Average, Low, Moderately Low, Very Low, and Exceptionally Low percentage points for how each trait enacts in a person.

The test also gives comparisons to all other test takers for the average. Ie, average % for women, average % for men, so you can see how different you are from the general population of test takers.

These are my percentages for each section;
