Personality Theory Project

I took the similar minds quiz, this theory is based on the Big Five factors which is called the Five

Factor Model (FFM) which are five dimensions of personality that are used to describe human

personality. The Big Five model is a comprehensive, empirical, data-driven research finding.

Identifying the traits and structure of human personality has been one of the most fundamental goals in

all of psychology. The five broad factors were discovered and defined by several independent sets of

researchers. These researchers began by studying known personality traits and then factor-analyzing

hundreds of measures of these traits (in self-report and questionnaire data, peer ratings, and objective

measures from experimental settings) in order to find the underlying factors of personality.

my life, I realize that I can't let it overcome my life. Spending time with my family and enjoying them

is more important than cleaning.

When I was very young my father left and I had very little contact with him growing up. This feeling

of rejection may have led to my low scores in extroversion. Perhaps the fear of rejection may have led

me to become somewhat reclusive, quiet and private. As a child not understanding why he left

sometimes made me think it was something that I did or said wrong so I felt that I should keep quiet for

fear of saying something wrong and having others close leave as well. It took many years, even into

early adulthood to realize that my reclusive behavior pushed people away by not letting ...
