Personality Assessment Before taking this test, I began to think every open-minded about this five factor personality assessment. During this assessment, I realized that I was asked too little of information for this assessment to determine my exact personality. After, I received this screen telling my personality.

Personality is a deep structure and this test only see’s part of it. (Huffman & Dowdell 2015, pp. 425) Factor two has been researched that some agreeable individuals are likely to be untrustworthy and help in unhelpful acts.
