Factor Personality Inventory

Openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism are all personality traits that an individual might possess. Understanding one’s personality is important, because it not only affects an individual’s disposition but also his or her overall well-being. Personality also has major impact on world view and the ways in which people deal with discrete and chronic life-stressors.

How might your personality be manifested in your present life? Furthermore, how might your personality traits be working for (or against) you in avenues such as career, friendships, and personal relationships? For this Assignment, you take the Five Factor Personality Test (FFPT), located in this week’s Learning Resources, to better identify your personality traits. You will then reflect on your life and self-identity to determine whether you believe your results to be accurate.
