    My results:

    The Big Five Personality Test
    Here are the five personality traits, how you scored on them and what that may mean for you. (Scale is 1 for the low and 5 for the high)

    Extraversion is characterized by positive emotions, surgency, and the tendency to seek out stimulation and the company of others. The trait is marked by pronounced engagement with the external world. Extraverts enjoy being with people, and are often perceived as full of energy. Your rating for extraversion is 1.2. The average person is 2.15 more points extraverted than you.

    Agreeableness is a tendency to be compassionate and cooperative rather than suspicious and antagonistic towards others. The trait reflects individual differences in general concern for social harmony. Agreeable individuals value getting along with others. Your rating for agreeableness is 4. The average person is 0.19 less points agreeable than you.

    Conscientiousness is a tendency to show self-discipline, act dutifully, and aim for achievement against measures or outside expectations. The trait shows a preference for planned rather than spontaneous behavior. It influences the way in which we control, regulate, and direct our impulses. Your rating for conscientiousness is 4.4. The average person is 0.66 less points conscientious than you.

    Neuroticism is the tendency to experience negative emotions, such as anger, anxiety, or depression. It is sometimes called emotional instability. Those who score high in neuroticism are emotionally reactive and vulnerable to stress. Your rating for neuroticism is 3.9. The average person is 1.22 less points neurotic than you.

    Openness is a general appreciation for art, emotion, adventure, unusual ideas, imagination, curiosity, and variety of experience. People who are open to experience are intellectually curious, appreciative of art, and sensitive to beauty. They tend to be, compared to closed people, more creative and more aware of their feelings. They are more likely to hold unconventional beliefs. Your rating for openness is 5. The average person is 1.92 less points open to experience than you.

    Here is another personality measure then: Selfishness vs Sacrifice.

    1. Do you think that self evaluated answers to a question describes your personality?

    I may add more tarot cards to the deck, but for now just one question should suffice.

    What sacrifice?
    I don't know if I understand you completely. Jung whats to describe how people behave and one important aspect of how we bahave is how and why we interact with others. So he puts us on a scale of introvert to extrovert by our tendencies for social needs. The key word is scale, he is not saying that every person needs constant attention or complete isolation.

    I don't follow. I'm saying: I am introvert/extrovert, I choose to be by myself/with others, my choice was selfish or unselfish.

    Matt 12:7 If you had known what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice , you would not have condemned the innocent.
    Matt 9:13 Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice.
    Hosea 6:6 For I desire loyalty and not sacrifice,
    the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings

    Have you twisted the meaning for a selfish pursuit? It looks like you have twisted that a perfect 180 degrees. I am amazed, but I have seen it before.

    Very well. Love is a more appropriate word. My scale is the selfish-loving scale, and in pretense I will measure it by the answer to a question:

    Do you think your self evaluated answer to a question describes your personality?

    Your answer can rank your personality on a scale between being selfish, and loving.

    Alright



    It would depend upon how honest you are with yourself. This would take introspection. Some people don't want to take an honest look in the mirror.

    I'm listening....

    Selfish :(

    However, I don't think your answer to a question describes your personality. :)

    We are faced with choices in our lives, and we have the choice of whether to be selfish, or loving, or ...

    The scale says you are selfish.

    According to your words, you don't go to your loved ones and ask them whether you are being loving, but instead think that personal introspection of your personality will reveal it to you. Similarly, being honest is a matter of speaking those words which are not fabricated for your personal pleasure, even in the face of a man with a record of violence.

    They are free to tell me, without fear of reprimand, knowing I will listen to them.

    And your point is? :confused:

    That would make me a INTP? It does describe me to the letter. According to the Keirsey Temperament Website I'm an Architect, so with my "what animal are you" I would be a architectual mountain goat! I have a strong urge to sketch some concept art around such a character.

    You are proving the scale correct. Reprimand can be unpleasant, and loving is more than listening.
