Q. What is the difference between Big Five, Five Factor, and the OCEAN model of personality?
A. Big Five, Five Factor, and OCEAN are all ways of describing the same theory of personality. Multiple psychological studies have arrived at the conclusion that the differences between people's personalities can be organized into five broad categories, called the Big Five or Five Factors. These are sometimes referred to as the five broad dimensions of personality. The Five Factors of personality are:
- Openness - How open a person is to new ideas and experiences
- Conscientiousness - How goal-directed, persistent, and organized a person is
- Extraversion - How much a person is energized by the outside world
- Agreeableness - How much a person puts others' interests and needs ahead of their own
- Neuroticism - How sensitive a person is to stress and negative emotional triggers
This Big Five assessment measures your level of each of the Big Five traits and shows your scores as they compare with an international sample of people of all ages.
