The big 5 personality characteristics

  • Extroversion
  • Agreebleness
  • Conscientiousness
  • Openness to experience
  • Emotional stability 

These traits reflect the most prominent ways that people differ from each other. To become better at understanding the people around you, start with these five dimensions.

Agreeableness

It reflects how much people want others to like them and have difficulty delivering bad news, giving criticism, and standing up for themselves to others.

People with agreeable personalities really want others to like them, while disagreeable people do not necessarily care whether others like them.

Conscientiousness

Conscientious people are driven to complete the tasks they start and to follow rules.

It is easy to undervalue the people low in conscientiousness, because they need a lot of supervision. However, those low in conscientiousness may try creative solutions to problems, because they do not feel the need to follow rules.

Openness to experience

Openness reflects people’s willingness to consider new ideas

People who are open will try new ideas on for size, while those closed to experience will typically reject new ideas just because they are new.

Emotional stability

Emotionally stable individuals are stoic. They are unfazed by circumstances. Emotionally unstable individuals experience significant highs and lows in their lives. This instability can cause difficulties in the workplace when people get angry or upset at others.

Personality is not enduring

Personality is not constant but changes over time. For example, self-confidence, warmth, self-control, and emotional stability tend to increase with age.

Earlier studies suggest more autonomy at work can increase a person's ability to cope with new situations, while a demanding and stressful job can make someone more neurotic.

Effects of chronic job insecurity
  • Reduced emotional stability. Chronic job insecurity can cause us to become anxious, tense, irritable, and depressed.
  • Reduced agreeableness. Agreeable people are naturally focused on sympathy, co-operation, and helping others. Chronic job insecurity shifts our focus to be more on ourselves instead of on others and can affect our standing as a positive and likable person.
  • Reduced conscientiousness. When we're always worried about our jobs, we are likely to become less motivated to put in an effort.
