Know yourself: A Simple Test

i am no great believer of these kind of tests, but it is fun. Go here and answer some straight-forward questions(be honest and accurate) to get back some 'instrospectives' at the end of it, in terms of 'Big Five' personality model. For eg., i got this:

Extroversion |||||||||||| 44%
Orderliness |||||||||||||||| 68%
Emotional Stability |||||||||||||||||||| 82%
Accommodation |||||||||||| 50%
Inquisitiveness |||||||||||||||| 70%

The Big Five is currently the most accepted personality model in the scientific community. The Big Five emerged from the work of multiple independent scientists/researchers starting in the 1950s who using different techniques obtained similar results. Those results were that there are five distinct personality traits/dimensions. Here are your results on each dimension:

Extroversion results were moderately low which suggests you are reclusive, quiet, unassertive, and private.

Orderliness results were moderately high which suggests you are, at times, overly organized, neat, structured and restrained at the expense too often of flexibility, variety, spontaneity, and fun.

Emotional Stability results were high which suggests you are very relaxed, calm, secure, and optimistic.

Accommodation results were medium which suggests you are moderately kind natured, trusting, and helpful while still maintaining your own interests.

Inquisitiveness results were high which suggests you are very intellectual, curious, imaginative but possibly not very practical.
