Trait psychology

Trait psychology

Trait psychology aligns you along five dimensions that describe universal aspects of differences between people. These are:

  1. Open to experience vs those who are more closed.
  2. Conscientiousness vs those with a more careless approach to life.
  3. Extroversion vs more introverted people
  4. Agreeable individuals vs those not agreeable.
  5. Neurotic individuals vs those who are more stable.

The implications of trait psychology

The five dimensions of trait psychology have implications for our well-being.

For example:

  • Openness and conscientiousness are good predictors of life success. Open people achieve success through being audacious, and conscientious people by sticking to deadlines.
  • Extroversion and agreeableness are both conducive to working well with people.

Extroverts and introverts communicate differently

Extroverts need stimulation by finding exciting things, such as loud noises, parties and social events. They like to have a lot of eye contact, they use more diminutive terms when they meet somebody. They prefer simple, black and white language.

Introverts are more likely to spend time in a quiet space where they can reduce stimulation. They may be misinterpreted as antisocial, but that is not necessarily true. You may simply realize that you do better with less stimulation. Introverts prefer contextually complex sentences. As a result, they sometimes talk past each other.

Why we're not always what we seem to be

Why we're not always what we seem to be

We also have free traits where we act out of character. You're very agreeable, but act disagreeably in order to advance a personal project in your life. It may relate to your kid, where you've been to hospital but they still don't know what's wrong. Or it could be your mom. 

You may be an introvert but have a core project that makes you act in an extroverted way. So, don't ask people what type they are. Instead, ask them what are the core projects in their life

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ghazala Begum

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
