The Big Five (50 items)

The Big Five measure assesses five broad dimensions of personality: Extraversion/Introversion, Conscientiousness, Agreeableness, Openness to Experience, and Neuroticism. Your results will include your estimated position on all five dimensions, plus a list of adjectives describing your unique blend of personality traits. While this is shorter than the 100-item version, it is also slightly less reliable.
