1. What is the "Big 5" personality test?
In psychology, Big Five refers to a descriptive model of personality, based on five fundamental dimensions (the "Big 5"). The five major personality traits are Extraversion, Agreeableness, Openness, Conscientiousness and Neuroticism. Each represents a range between two extremes.
For example, Extraversion represents a continuum between Extreme Extraversion and Extreme Introversion (the majority of individuals fall somewhere between the two polar extremes of each dimension).
2. How are the Big 5 results computed?
The Big 5 test is used to characterize each candidate in relation to these five dimensions. For each dimension, the candidate is assigned one of three groups: "Low", "Medium" and "High", depending on his or her actual score on the test. Assignment is based on a representative sample study (calibrated cohort).
A candidate who belongs to the "High" group is a candidate who falls within the definition of this dimension; conversely, a candidate who belongs to the "Low" group is far from it.
3. How can we interpret the results of the Big 5?
Let's take the example of the "Extraversion" dimension:
"Low": introverted, solitary and reserved candidate
"Medium": ambivert candidate (neither extrovert nor introvert), engaging and flexible
"High": outgoing, lively and sociable candidate
