Understanding the concept of personality .

What is the personality concept?

Throughout the history of this concept, each era has tried to define personality by classifying people according to certain psychological criteria.

Personality refers to a set of affective, emotional, and dynamic characteristics that are relatively stable and general in the way a person reacts to life situations. It is not a question of intelligence, aptitude, or knowledge (cognitive aspects), but of affect, emotion, and dynamism. 

Personality is described in terms of traits rather than types. 



What are The Big5 personality traits?

Personality traits are measured using the Big5.

The Big5 does not classify people into five different categories. Instead, it assesses them five times, and on five different personality traits. By analysing the Big5 results, we can see that a person is extroverted, without judging their ability to be friendly or open-minded. 

Personality sub-trait.

Each of the Big 5’s main traits is subdivided into four sub-traits for more detailed analysis.

Why do we use the Big 5 test to assess personality?

A large proportion of personality tests are based on the Big 5 methodology. These traits give us an overall view of all aspects of a candidate’s or employee’s professional life. The Big5 personality traits help us to understand a person’s behavior at work and to accurately predict their future performance, which is why we chose them. 

It’s important to Highlight that the Big5 analyses preferences, not skills or expertise. For example, a person whose dominant trait is extroversion will put more emphasis on his or her extroversion skills: this does not predict his or her ability to be friendly or conscientious.

Thus, each test result made up of the combination of preferences on the five traits constitutes a minimum to describe a person’s character. Based on these traits, we have an overall view of all aspects of a candidate’s or employee’s professional life.

The result will surprise you! Give it a try!
