Can we guess your domainant trait?

What factors influence a person’s personality? Everyone has a general understanding of their personality style, whether they are outgoing or shy, delicate or thick-skinned. Personality is described by psychologists who are trying to figure out the science of who we are as individual variations in how people think, feel, and act.

There are many ways to assess personality, but psychologists have largely abandoned attempts to categorise people into categories. Instead, they concentrate on personality characteristics.

The Big Five are the elements that go into forming a person’s personality. A individual may have a small amount of openness, a lot of conscientiousness, a moderate amount of extraversion, a lot of agreeableness, and almost no neuroticism. Alternatively, someone may be irritable, neurotic, introverted, attentive, and not very accessible. The following is a list of what each trait entails:

Openness
Openness is a term that refers to a person’s willingness to try new things. People who have a high level of openness enjoy trying new things. They are curious and enjoy art, creativity, and new experiences. “Variety is the spice of life,” the transparent individual’s slogan may be.

People who have a low level of openness are the polar opposite: they tend to stick to their routines, resist new experiences, and aren’t the most adventurous eaters. Changing one’s personality is typically thought to be a difficult task, but openness is a personality attribute that has been shown to change in adulthood. People who took psilocybin, or hallucinogenic “magic mushrooms,” became more accessible after the experience, according to a 2011 report. The impact lasted for at least a year, implying that it is possibly permanent.
California’s try-anything mentality is no illusion when it comes to experimental drug use. According to a 2013 study of personality characteristics across the United States, transparency is most common on the West Coast.

Conscientiousness
Conscientious people are well-organized and have a good sense of responsibility. They are dependable, disciplined, and goal-oriented. Conscientious people aren’t going on round-the-world trips with just a backpack; they’re planners.

People with a low level of conscientiousness are more spontaneous and uninhibited. They may have a tendency to be reckless. Conscientiousness is a beneficial attribute to have because it has been related to academic and professional success.

Extroversion
Extraversion vs. introversion is perhaps the most well-known of the Big Five personality traits. Someone who is more of an extravert is more of a social butterfly. Extraverts are gregarious, sociable people who get their energy from crowds. In their social interactions, they are assertive and upbeat.

Introverts, on the other hand, need a lot of alone time, possibly due to the way their brains process social interaction. Introversion and shyness are sometimes mistaken, but they are not the same thing. Shyness is described as a fear of social interactions or a social inability. Introverts can be charming at parties; they only prefer events that are done alone or in small groups.

Agreeableness
The degree of a person’s warmth and kindness is measured by agreeableness. The more accommodating someone is, the more trusting, supportive, and caring they are. People who disagree are cold and dismissive of others, and they are less likely to work together.

Women rate men with a high level of agreeableness as better dancers, indicating that body movement will reveal personality. (According to the same 2011 report, conscientiousness often makes for good dancers.) But, in the workplace, disagreeable men receive more than agreeable guys. Disagreeable women did not have the same wage advantage as men, implying that a no-nonsense demeanour is only advantageous to men.

A study published in August 2016 in the journal Science Advances found that being envious, which can contribute to people being seen as unsociable, was the most common personality type among the four studies. When anyone else is more popular than they are, envious people feel threatened.

Neuroticism is a form of neurotic personality.
Look no further than George Costanza of the long-running sitcom “Seinfeld” to grasp neuroticism. George is known for his neuroses, which the show blames on his unstable parents. He worries about everything, is obsessed with germs and illness, and once left a job due to his fear about not having access to a private bathroom.

George may have a high level of neuroticism, but the personality trait exists. People with a high level of neuroticism worry a lot and are prone to anxiety and depression. And when things are going well, neurotic people will find something to be concerned about. According to a 2012 report, when neurotic people with decent salaries got raises, the extra money made them unhappy.

People with low neuroticism, on the other hand, are emotionally calm and even-keeled.

Neuroticism is, unsurprisingly, related to a variety of negative health consequences. Neurotic people die earlier than emotionally healthy people, likely because they numb their nerves with cigarettes and alcohol.

Parasites can make you feel neurotic, which is possibly the creepiest thing about neuroticism. And we’re not talking about the inherent fear that comes with discovering a tapeworm has taken up residence in your intestine. According to a 2006 report, undiagnosed infection with the parasite Toxoplasma gondii may make people more vulnerable to neuroticism.
