Fluid knowledge is a cognitive ability underlying all mental aptitudes and is thought to be impermeable to practice. Jaeggi and colleagues (2008) challenge fluid intelligences resilient nature by finding results. In addition, the popular press article by Hurley (2012) includes the shortcomings of the study and the skeptic view of Jaeggi’s and colleagues (2008). Hurley (2012) cites three major deficiencies with Jaeggi and associates (2008) article: only one reasoning task was implemented, the reasoning task was highly correlated with other measures, and the researches failed investigate whether these gains had transferability to school grades, job performance, real-world gains. Ethical issues/Slant Furthermore, the popular press article offered three scholar views that did not agree with the research articles findings.
The Big Five is the most widely accepted and used model of personality. The model consists of broad dimensions of personality traits. These dimensions are: Openness to Experience/Intellect, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness and Neuroticism. Upon completion of the Big Five Personality test, my results were somewhat surprising to me. Overall, I scored on the low end for Openness to Experience/Intellect, Extraversion and Neuroticism dimensions and on the high end for Conscientiousness and Agreeableness dimensions.
The Big Five Theory is a theory that we have 5 traits that make up our personality, them being Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Neuroticism and Openness to Experience. The Big Five Theory is an interesting and intelligent take on personality, but raises some questions. What research findings led to the decision of the 5 traits of personality that make up the Big Five? Five traits is a minimal amount to explain personality, but there is reasoning behind why only five make up this theory. Five traits were hand selected for the Big Five.
Introduction The Big Five traits of personality are broad dimensions of individual’s personality in psychological field. These traits are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism (Cobb-Clark & Schurer, 2012). Accuracy of Results I strongly believe that my results of Big Five Personality test are accurate. Pertaining to the five personality traits, the test showed that I posses 53% extrovert personality, 62% conscientiousness, 48% neuroticism, 34% agreeableness, and 15% openness. As the greater percentage is of conscientiousness, it held utterly true as I am an orderly person and is hard-working individual.
The article that I have read and understand is the article about the big five personality trait model. The big five consists of all factors including negative, emotionality, extraversion, openness, and conscientiousness. The big five is one of the factors, but has factors that are above it and that includes: the big four, three, two, and one, the article has plenty of things to say about this topic and it connects to the principle as a whole. It includes facts about the psychopathology and it is a disorder that is independently diagnosed to dysfunction. These facts are simple and have an effect on the article and idea as a whole.
Why aren’t we all roughly the same? According to Nettle, the answer is that there is not a single optimum personality that it is always beneficial to have. The heart of the book is five chapters that investigate each trait of the ‘Big Five’. Each term is described in how it relates to the brain’s mechanism or function that it expresses. For example, people that characterize themselves high in extraversion are usually energized and enjoy being social.
Individual Reflection – Big Five Personality Test After taking the Big Five Personality Test I’ve concluded that it is a fairly accurate assessment of my personality. 1) On Openness to Experience/Intellect I ranked at the 53 percentile, with the description that I don’t typically seek out new experiences. I would agree with this assessment. While I am somewhat creative, I am no artist. It takes me more time to do something creative than something analytical, but I do still like to be creative on occasion.
** Looking past its weaknesses the Big Five does have (distinctive) strengths that (overpower) its weaknesses. *Even though the big five is very general and vague in some ways, it brings order to personality evaluation and is the most popular personality assessment to this day. Although it is general and misses a few aspects, it does a very well job of evaluating a participant and condensing their results into five aspects to explain what kind of person they
Also, the test only provides answers to how the individual’s personality is at one particular time. Through the first eighteen years of life, a person will change drastically because interests, aspirations, and social situations change. Maybe future improvements of the test can incorporate predictions as to how traits and personalities will change overtime. Nevertheless, the Big Five personality test is the best test developed and is a great way of understanding what makes us
The Big Five Personality Test Results: • How would you score yourself on each of them? For openness, which are the characteristics of being creative, curious, and imaginative,- and agreeableness, the traits of kindness, trust, and warmth, (Rathus, 2010, pg. 394), I would give myself a 4 out of 5. In most situations, so long as their appropriate, I’m pretty willing to try something new. I’m tolerant, kind, warm, and sometimes almost too sensitive.
