Share the results of your test in a short paragraph (100-300 words) summarizing what the test results say about you on each of the five dimensions of personality.
Step 4: Summarize (200-300 words) what a potential employer looking at these results might say are your strengths and weakness as a potential employee.
In the first dimension of personality, extraversion, my score was high (80). The highest-scoring traits in this category were Gregariousness and Activity Level. The lowest was Cheerfulness. The next dimension of personality is Agreeableness. I scored very very low in this category (1). I scored 1/100 in all categories except for one, trust, where I scored 16. The next dimension of personality is conscientiousness. In this category I scored low (26). I scored an 80 in self-efficacy, but also scored an 8 in Dutifulness. The next dimension of personality is neuroticism, where I scored (41). The highest trait in this category was Anger (yikes). The website states “Your score on Neuroticism is average, indicating that your level of emotional reactivity is typical of the general population. Stressful and frustrating situations are somewhat upsetting to you, but you are generally able to get over these feelings and cope with these situations.” The final dimension of personality is openness to experience. I scored very low in this category (6). I scored well in liberalism, adventurousness, and intellect. The rest of my scores were 1’s.
As an employer, looking into traits can be an important component of selecting the right candidate for the job. finding someone with the right traits and personality can benefit both the employee and the organization. If an employer were to look at my test results here is what I think they would think. In the first dimension, I scored an 80, this presents me as an extrovert, who would be able to make friends with my coworkers and would easily form relationships with others. This could be a beneficial trait, especially if I will be meting with customers or clients on a regular basis. the next dimension of personality is agreeableness. I scored very very low in this category. I think this would give a negative perception of myself to a potential employer. It would make me seem hard to get along with or that I may cause some conflict down the road. While this would likely be a negative thing, there is some potential for this to be a positive in certain roles. The next dimension of personality is Conscientiousness, where I scored low. This low score would likely also be seen as a negative for many employers, making me seem like I don’t care about others feelings or problems. Again this could also be seen as a positive for some roles where emotion should not be an important decision maker. In the next dimension, neuroticism, I scored average. This puts me in the middle of the pack for this trait, not telling the employer much about myself in this area. The final dimension is openness to experience, which I scored low as well. This is another trait that could be seen as both a negative or a positive thing, depending on the role. Some jobs require you to be innovative and creative, while others are more clearly outlined with quantifiable expectations and goals.
