About the Checklist:
Personality refers to unique characteristics exhibited by individuals across different situations. In simple terms, personality determines the way we talk, behave and carry ourselves in different situations. The main objective of any personality test is to help individuals find out their specific traits/characteristics and understand their unique patterns of behaviours.
There are different types of personality tests, however, the most prominent one is the Big Five Personality Test. According to the Big Five Factors, the following are the five personality traits - extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, openness and neuroticism.
These five traits serve as the emerging blocks of the personality of any individual. These traits are measured in the continuum/range and the individual’s personality is determined based on the extent to which one falls between both extremes.
Eblity’s Personality Checklist is adapted from the Big Five Inventory (BFI) that measures the personality traits and behavioural characteristics of individuals on five dimensions - OCEAN:
Openness (O) - It refers to the tendency or capacity to enjoy new experiences. Openness to exploration and new learning are key aspects of openness.
Conscientiousness (C) - It refers to the tendency to engage in goal-directed activities, be highly thoughtful and capacity to manage/control impulse.
Extraversion (E) - It is characterized by a high level of sociability, emotional and verbal expressiveness.
Agreeableness (A) - It refers to the tendency to engage in altruistic or prosocial behaviours.
Neuroticism (N) - It refers to emotional instability and lack of emotional awareness and management.
