Shichibukai: What, I wonder, is the output of all these personality traits?

This is one of the criticisms of trait theory when it comes to personality. They can be rather "circular": Alice does x behaviour because she is shy, Alice is shy so she does x behaviour. It tells us what but not why (as opposed to psychoanalytic or learning theories, for instance.)

Why are people getting such high scores for "Neuroticism"?

Neuroticism: 37% You are generally relaxed. \ High scorers tend to be nervous, high-strung, insecure, worrying; Low scorers tend to be calm, relaxed, secure, hardy.

"Generally relaxed"? I guess anything is high compared to my 9%...

Because the average troper is a stressed out nerd apparently.

I can attest to the laziness; though that only seems to apply when I don't actually have something to do.

Yeah, that makes no sense. I just tend to forget about things, so I keep track with this stopwatch I wear all the time.

None the less, I'm always happy-ish. If I had to describe myself with a song, that song would be this:

There are highs and lows in everything—except conscientiousness. No highs.

Openness - 100%

Conscientiousness - 56%

Extroversion - 31%

Agreeableness - 94%

Neuroticism - 13%

These look about accurate, I'm probably even less prone to stress than this suggests actually, after a point I revert to apathy. The only thing I really disagree with is the idea that I think people are decent and trustworthy. I believe all people are doing what they think is right, not necessarily what is right.

Openness - 60%. Conscientiousness - 56%. Extraversion - 28%. Agreeableness - 25&. Neuroticism - 29%.

I suppose that's rather average. It suits me well enough.

Openness to Experience/Intellect (High scorers tend to be original, creative, curious, complex; Low scorers tend to be conventional, down to earth, narrow interests, uncreative.) You are relatively open to new experiences. (Your percentile: 70)

Conscientiousness (High scorers tend to be reliable, well-organized, self-disciplined, careful; Low scorers tend to be disorganized, undependable, negligent.) You probably have a messy desk! (Your percentile: 1)

Extraversion (High scorers tend to be sociable, friendly, fun loving, talkative; Low scorers tend to be introverted, reserved, inhibited, quiet.) You probably enjoy spending quiet time alone. (Your percentile: 0)

Agreeableness (High scorers tend to be good natured, sympathetic, forgiving, courteous; Low scorers tend to be critical, rude, harsh, callous.) You find it easy to criticize others. (Your percentile: 4)

Neuroticism (High scorers tend to be nervous, high-strung, insecure, worrying; Low scorers tend to be calm, relaxed, secure, hardy.) You aren't particularly nervous, nor calm. (Your percentile: 49)

Just about accurate, although I'm surprised to find myself so neurotic.

Of course, the self-reporting bias must be taken into account.

I have devised a most marvelous signature, which this signature line is too narrow to contain.
Jan 24th 2011 at 1:23:58 PM

30, 58, 59, 8, 9. This is bullshit. Being forgiving and critical aren't the opposites of one spectrum.

If I weren't so non-neurotic, I would be jealous of the people who scored higher than me. . .

I'd certainly have liked to score higher on openness.

And extraversion, for that matter.

I was a little shocked at first to be honest, but I suppose it fits. I sort of wish I'd scored a bit higher on conscientious, but being honest means that I really am that disorganized.

Openness to Experience/Intellect You enjoy having novel experiences and seeing things in new ways. (Your percentile: 84)

Conscientiousness You probably have a messy desk! (Your percentile: 17)

Extraversion You are extremely outgoing, social, and energetic. (Your percentile: 86)

Agreeableness You find it easy to criticize others. (Your percentile: 17)

Neuroticism You tend to become anxious or nervous. (Your percentile: 60)

...but as some people mentioned, I'm never sure about the answers on these. Better tests are really long and are examined for inconsistencies, or phrased in more disguised ways; IIRC they're also examined by psychologists for a more accurate/less generalized summary.

Look, you can't make me speak in a logical, coherent, intelligent bananna.
