INTERPRETATION NOTES


Your Social Boldness: Introverted VS Extraverted
You are quite introverted. Socially, you prefer a more relaxed, low-key environment, rather than the hustle and bustle of a wild night in the city. You tend not to talk a lot, but when you do people listen, because when you say something it has meaning. You are not seeking the limelight, usually you prefer to let the attention-mongers do their thing while you observe. In an unfamiliar setting, you tend to be cautious and shy while you evaluate the circumstances. You prefer to avoid conflict, so you do not put yourself into a threatening situation. Your shyness may be perceived as unfriendly, but that could not be further from the truth. People need to be patient with you and take the time to get to know the complex, private you.
 
Your Agreeableness: Candid VS Considerate
You are quite candid. You are very good at making tough and absolute, objective decisions. You are not trying to win a popularity contest by making sure everyone is happy. You are trying to make smart choices. As a result, people may find you to be intimidating. You have a realistic, no-nonsense outlook on life and are more interested in truth and impartial justice rather than being sympathetic. You have very high self-esteem, which works well with your ability to be self-reliant and tough-minded. These traits are especially beneficially since you prefer to work alone and do not seek approval from others. With regard to your relations with others, you tend to be cautious. You do not blindly trust people. Sometimes you are unwilling to let others see the real you, so you tend to be somewhat guarded.
 
Your Self-Control: Impulsive VS Cautious
You are very impulsive. You are an independent thinker. You do not need a book of rules to tell you how to behave – you know inside what is right and what is wrong and you act accordingly. You are able to live life spontaneously, because you are able to make decisions without endless deliberation. In fact, when you and another person are making a decision, you are able to reach a solution fairly quickly while the other person has to cautiously plan every step. Eventually, they will agree with you, which is frustrating when your first impulse is usually the correct one in the decision-making process. You tend to be a little more casual, and you do not feel out of sorts when your home or office is not perfectly neat. In general, your life is pleasurable – you know how to have fun and will never be accused of being staid or stuffy.
 
Your Anxiety Level: Excitable VS Relaxed
You are very excitable. You do not like stressful situations. You tend to react emotionally to stress, which can lead to bad moods, or even anxiety, anger, or depression. You like to be treated fairly, and may become upset if you sense that someone is trying to cheat you. You may find urges and cravings irresistible to the point that you are giving into them even if you know you will regret it or feel guilty later. Sometimes you may feel uncomfortable in social situations, even thinking that others are judging you. This self-consciousness may show through as shyness, because you do not want people to think poorly of you. You tend to worry and are apprehensive in unfamiliar circumstances.
 
Your Openness to Change: Practical VS Imaginative
You are very practical. You want just the facts – keep it plain and simple. You are practical, pragmatic and well grounded. You have no time for carelessness and impracticality. You prefer to keep your emotions to yourself, rather than exposing your feelings to the world. Life moves along much better for you when you can maintain a schedule and have routine in your life. Unexpected surprises and chaos are a major inconvenience to you. You tend to be conservative and are somewhat resistant to change. Others respect your ability to act properly in your everyday life.
 
The way you Think/Reason: Concrete VS Abstract
You are slightly concrete in your thinking. Your thinking is neither simple nor complex, to others you appear to be a well-educated person but not an intellectual. You tend to be intellectually curious and have the uncanny abilities to distinguish imaginative, creative people from down-to-earth, conventional people.

(2) Personality traits describe, relative to other people, the frequency or intensity of a person’s feelings, thoughts, or behaviors. Possession of a trait is therefore a matter of degree. We might describe two individuals as extraverts, but still see one as more extraverted than the other. This report uses expressions such as “extravert” or “high in extraversion” to describe someone who is likely to be seen by others as relatively extraverted.
 
(3) Please keep in mind that scores on a personality assessment are neither good nor bad. As with any personality inventory, scores and descriptions can only approximate an individual’s actual personality. Questions about the accuracy of your results are best resolved by reviewing and discussing your report with people who know you well.
