Emotional Stability (score 35)


Emotional stability assesses overall emotional strength and the ability to withstand stress.

You report experiencing a lot of ups and downs in your emotions. It's hard for you to keep your feelings under control, which often interferes with your ability to handle the difficulties inherent in everyday life. It is also a struggle for you to tolerate annoying or unpleasant situations. You may go to great lengths to avoid or relieve yourself of any form of discomfort. When negative feelings arise in you, it's almost impossible for you to resist them - you allow yourself to be overwhelmed, which clouds your thinking and judgment. Staying composed is often easier said than done, but it is possible with a dedicated effort to be self-aware and to keep upsetting situations (and people) in perspective.

Extroversion (score 43)


Extroversion refers to whether you prefer interacting with others or enjoy spending time on your own.

You fall in the middle of the introversion and extroversion continuum, which means that you draw characteristics from both ends of the spectrum. Sometimes, you need time to yourself, while other times you enjoy being in the company of others. Overall, you are likely a fairly outgoing person who occasionally opts for solitude. This allows you to strike the perfect balance, and makes you a versatile employee because you can work alone and as part of a group.

Openness (score 59)


Open-mindedness measures the extent to which you seek out new experiences and are receptive to different views and people.

You are interested in expanding your horizons to some extent, but also enjoy the comfort of the familiar. This doesn't mean that you absolutely need routine and stability to thrive (although it would be preferable) - you do enjoy trying new things on occasion. You also understand that sometimes, change is necessary, but that doesn't mean you'll always like it. Essentially, if you can avoid the change you will, but you won't resist it if it needs to happen. You are moderately curious, but won't seek out novelty just for the sake of it.

Agreeableness (score 61)


Agreeableness refers to how likeable, approachable, and cooperative you are.

You are fairly agreeable. People generally find you approachable and good-natured. While you are generally pleasant to interact with, if you are tired, frustrated, or simply not in the mood to interact with others, you may sometimes be edgy - although you likely don't intend to be. Overall, however, you are quite easy to get along with and people likely enjoy your company.

Conscientiousness (score 62)


Conscientiousness measures how organized, reliable and rule-abiding you are.

You are generally reliable and disciplined person. Sometimes, you can be a little careless and disorganized, but this is more likely to be the case when you are stressed out or busy. Overall, you have a natural tendency towards being responsible and rule-abiding, and can be counted on to do your best when the situation calls for it, even occasionally going above and beyond the call of duty. Others can usually trust you to be responsible.

Impression Management (score 0)


Degree to which you responded in a socially desirable manner.

This scale assesses the degree to which results on this test are distorted or manipulated. Many people will try to present themselves in a better light, especially if the stakes are high.

Test-taker answers are compared to responses obtained from a large sample of the general population. When someone systematically selects socially desirable responses that are rarely endorsed by others, there is good reason to believe that a positive self-presentation bias is at play. A score that is suspiciously high may indicate that a person is lying, which may invalidate that whole test.

There was little or no indication in your results to suggest that you were lying or trying to present yourself in a favorable light.
