This takes a few minutes, so don’t rush it. And it’s not a simple question of the higher the score, the better!
The results are organized into five grids, which represent five key areas. When you have scored the test, your results will show how you described yourself in each key area. For example, the first one shows your degree of extraversion – the extent to which your thinking is shaped by the world around you, rather than by your inner thoughts and reflections.

How to interpret your answers?

Once you have a total sore for each category, you can read off your results form the tables below. All you need to know is that:

0-11 is a low score in that category
12-24 is an average score in that category
25-36 is a high score in that category

Lets see how you fared in each of the five categories

1. Extraversion

If you are a low scorer you are happy to work independently, away form the distraction of other people. You enjoy your own company and have little need for constant contact with others. It is likely that you will take a while to get to know new people and may slip into the background at social events. You are unlikely to require constant variety, change and excitement. You may prefer roles that involve independent work and not constantly having to meet and deal with new people.

If you are a high scorer you greatly enjoy the company of others. Talkative, outgoing and sociable, you dislike being on you own for long periods of time. By nature lively and participative, you enjoy social occasions and are likely to take centre stage at parties and events. You actively seek variety and change and need a high level of stimulation in order to avoid becoming bored. As a result, you may prefer roles that involve a high level of social contact, particularly if this involves initiating, developing and maintaining relationships.

2. Openness

Low scorers are down-to-earth people who have their feet firmly planted on the ground. Your thinking style is realistic and practical and you are inclined to reject theoretical approaches to problem-solving. You will be more interested in learning practical skills and techniques that have immediately relevance. Preferring to focus on concrete issues, you will be more concerned to get things working than to ponder why they work. As a result, you are likely to enjoy roles that involve solving real-life problems.

High scorers are inclined to think in abstract theoretical ways. At times you may become so involved with your own thoughts and ideas that you lose track of practical realities. Being open to theoretical possibilities and unconventional ideas, you are inclined to bring a radical, innovative approach to problem-solving. You are likely to enjoy roles that provide opportunities for you to express your creativity and originality in a scientific, artistic or business context.

3. Agreeableness

Low scorers are especially suited to roles where it is important to have a cool and questioning take on other people’s behaviour. You are likely to be a little cynical, suspicious or sceptical, and may sometimes question other people’s motives. As a result you will not easily be taken in by flattery or praise. With practice, you may be able to train yourself to be less suspicious.

High scorers are trusting and kind-hearted by nature. You are quick to help those you see as being more needy than yourself and are inclined to give people the benefit of the doubt. However, others may sometimes take advantage of you goodwill. You are a good team player, suited to all roles that require building trusting relationships with others.

4. Stability

Low scores are prone to mood swings and can be volatile, which can make life interesting at times. You may be easily upset by others or react badly to criticism, even if it is valid. You may have a tendency to worry about past failures. Stressful work is not likely to suit you, nor might working long hours under pressure.

High scorers are emotionally stable, calm and composed, and no prone to mood swings. You generally cope well under pressure, and are unlikely to become tense, irritable, moody or upset by what others say. You could be well suited to roles that are emotionally challenging or involve working under pressure for long hours.

5. Control

Low scorers tend to be spontaneous and impulsive, and comfortable with change. You are suited to roles that require adaptability and flexibility, and don’t enjoy making detailed plans and schedules. You are unlikely to be particularly well organized or systematic in your work, and must guard against losing interest in tasks before they are finished. You may spread yourself across too many different jobs at once. You might be ill-suited to roles that involve rigidly following set systems, procedures and rules.

High scorers on this scale pay attention to detail and display self-control and restraint. You are well organized and like to plan ahead carefully. Diligent and persevering by nature, you have a strong sense of duty. Once you have started a task, you are likely to feel compelled to see it through to the end. You feel comfortable working in well-structured environments. You might not be best suited to working in places with rapidly changing priorities and goals, where you have to constantly thing on your feet.

So, how accurate were your results? Did they help you start thinking about the kind of roles you might enjoy? Whatever the outcome, it’s worth remembering there are no right or wrong answers, and it might be that you came out somewhere in the middle in some of the categories. Alternatively, if you got a very high or low score in each of the five, it could be that you were cheating! But if it gave you a taste for more self-analysis, read on.
