The Big Five personality traits, also known as the five-factor model (FFM) and the OCEAN model, is a taxonomy, or grouping, for personality traits. When factor analysis (a statistical technique) is applied to personality survey data, some words used to describe aspects of personality are often applied to the same person. For example, someone described as conscientious is more likely to be described as "always prepared" rather than "messy". This theory is based therefore on the association between words but not on neuropsychological experiments. This theory uses descriptors of common language and therefore suggests five broad dimensions commonly used to describe the human personality and psyche.

Why should I take the test?

  • Human beings are social animals and social interaction is inevitable. We estimate our and other people's worth based on the quality of interaction and comparison with each other. Understanding yourself and others makes it easier to get along with other people. It has proven to improve relationships and results in career success. 

  • Our compassion and kindness are a by-product of understanding other people's perspectives and misfortunes. The Big Five report gives you an in-depth analysis of human temperaments helping us feel their pain and struggles. 

  • The test has been translated into the Urdu language to cater to people speaking the Urdu language around the world.

Personality disorders and FFM

As of 2002, there were over fifty published studies relating the FFM to personality disorders that confirm the psychopathological predictive ability of FFM scores. Since that time, quite a number of additional studies have expanded on this research base and provided further empirical support for understanding the DSM-V personality disorders in terms of the FFM domains. Lee Anna Clark asserted that "the five-factor model of personality is widely accepted as representing the higher-order structure of both normal and abnormal personality traits". The five-factor model is claimed to significantly predict all ten personality disorder symptoms and outperform the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) in the prediction of borderline, avoidant, and dependent personality disorder symptoms.


  • GPA and exam performance are both predicted by conscientiousness

  • Neuroticism is negatively related to academic success

  • Openness predicts utilizing synthesis-analysis and elaborative-processing learning styles

  • Neuroticism negatively correlates with learning styles in general

  • Openness and extraversion both predict all four learning styles.



  • Research has demonstrated that Agreeableness is negatively related to salary. Those high in Agreeableness make less, on average than those low in the same trait.

  • Neuroticism is also negatively related to salary while Conscientiousness and Extraversion are positive predictors of salary.

  • Occupational self-efficacy has also been shown to be positively correlated with conscientiousness and negatively correlated with neuroticism.

  • Significant predictors of career-advancement goals are extraversion, conscientiousness, and agreeableness. Some research has also suggested that the Conscientiousness of a supervisor is positively associated with an employee's perception of abusive supervision. While others have suggested that those with low agreeableness and high neuroticism are traits more related to abusive supervision.




Dating couples

  • Self-reported relationship quality is negatively related to partner-reported neuroticism and positively related to both self and partner-reported conscientiousness.

Engaged couples

  • Self-reported relationship quality was higher among those high in partner-reported openness, agreeableness, and conscientiousness.

  • Self-reported relationship quality was higher among those high in self-reported extraversion and agreeableness.

  • Self-reported relationship quality is negatively related to both self and partner-reported neuroticism

  • Observers rated the relationship quality higher if the participating partner's self-reported extraversion was high.

Married couples

  • High self-reported neuroticism, extraversion, and agreeableness are related to high levels of self-reported relationship quality

  • Partner-reported agreeableness is related to observed relationship quality
