What are the Personality Traits Big Five

What is a Personality Trait?

A Personality trait is a distinguishing characteristic or quality, typically one belonging to a person. It can be a genetically determined attribute of that person. Some synonyms for the word β€˜trait’ are attributes, characteristics, features, particularity, and quality of a person, etc.

In psychological trait theory, the Personality Traits Big Five, also known as the five-factor model (FFM) are a suggested classification, for the personality traits. It is also known as Personality Traits Big 5 or the OCEAN model developed from the 1980s onwards. Moreover, each of the Personality Traits Big Five is subdivided into six sub traits which I will try to cover in my next articles.

Psychologist Gordon Allport categorized these Personality Traits and created a list of more than 4,000 personality traits, while Hans Eysenck proposed that there were just three. In fact, all these are summarized into these 5 Personality Traits theory. Train Your self-discipline to Create a Better Version of You. In today’s article, we are going to explore this trait theory.

Five Big Personality Traits

1. Openness in a Personality Trait:

Openness means honestness, frankness, and directness. It is one of the five personality traits of personality traits big five theory. Openness in a personality trait indicates how open-minded a person is. A person with a high level of openness in a personality enjoys experimenting with new things in life. Openness makes a person imaginative, curious, and open-minded.

People with Openness in personality are usually imaginative, rather than practical. Being creative, open to new and different ideas, and in touch with their feelings are some of the topmost characteristics of these people.

Being open to every change may take a person to a high level of achievement in life. Openness in personality most of the time leads a person towards success in all fields of life.

In simple words, conscientiousness means meticulousness or carefulness. It is one of the traits of the Big Five personality trait theory. A person with high conscientiousness usually has a high level of self-discipline. Conscientiousness trait indicates how mastery a person is. Conscientiousness people prefer to follow a strategic way towards their goals, rather than act spontaneously. Their planning and determination help them become highly successful in their profession.

3. Extraversion Personality Trait:

Extraversion which is also pronounced as extroversion is the state of primarily obtaining fulfillment and satisfaction from outside oneself. This is one of the personality traits of personality traits big five theory. Also, an Extravert tends to enjoy human interactions and to be enthusiastic, talkative, self-confident, and gregarious. Extraverts are strong, energized, and thrive off being around other people.

It indicates how outgoing, communal, and social a person is. Extraverts love to attend social gatherings, functions, and being with people. However, a person low in extraversion is less outgoing and is more comfortable working and staying alone. You might also like How to Set Goals in Life to get real time Success.

    I’m an ambivert. I can take so “much” of crowds. I feel GOD WANTS me to bless others; to NOT go into my own hole. But I can. Because I love my alone time. It’s taken me years to be comfortable with just being ME. Crowds drain me. After 15 years as a Principal it was common for me to be around crowds….of “small humans” lol. But I seek nature, solitude and one-on-one time with my maker. I love people. I do. I just seek peace. Crowds and stress are draining. And I should add that I love humor. Where would one be without laughter? Peace to you!
