Frequently asked questions

How do the big five personality traits predict work behavior?

Knowing an individual’s Big 5 personality traits can help identify what type of worker the person is. Big 5 personality traits include Conscientiousness, Emotional Stability, Extraversion, Openness, and Agreeableness.
Conscientiousness is a trait that has big influence on your performance. People high on conscientiousness are usually orderly and more self-disciplined. People with high emotional stability are better at dealing with workplace conflict and fast-paced, unexpected change. Extroverted people tend to take charge of situations, while people high in openness are usually more adaptable. Agreeable people generally tend to follow the rules and are more compromising.

What is the difference between strengths and soft skills?

Strengths are personality traits that one is “naturally” good at. Strengths include - for example - curiosity, social intelligence, courage, grit, adaptability. On the other hand, soft skills, like any other skills, are something you can learn and improve through repetition. Soft skills are traits that are essential for interacting with others and succeeding in the workplace. Examples of soft skills include time management, communication skills, negotiation, leadership aptitude, bias to action.

How to identify strengths in the workplace?

One’s professional strengths are closely linked to their personality traits. Thus, you can identify your strengths in the workplace by learning your personality type. The Myers–Briggs Type Indicator in the workplace is very popular among corporations but very unpopular, and considered invalid, by psychologists. The most empirically validated and useful personality assessment is the Big Five (OCEAN) model which provides a scientific, psychometric tool for assessing personality traits both in personal life and at work, which our free online assessment is based on.

What are examples of soft skills and strengths at work?

Soft skills at work are tightly linked to personality traits. For instance, conscientiousness implies good organizational skills, time management, being on time, setting timeframes for completing work, and sticking to them. Openness is related to creativity, openness to criticism and differing opinions of colleagues, which is good for conflict management. Agreeableness implies higher levels of cooperation, teamwork, and ease in following instructions. Extraverted people are good at communicating and negotiating with colleagues and clients and tend to have strong leadership skills. Emotional stability involves strong stress management skills and coping abilities.
Strengths in the workplace are linked to personality traits. Examples of strengths implied by conscientiousness are being hardworking, dependable, and responsible. As for openness, it's curiosity, a wide range of interests, independence, and innovativeness. Agreeableness means being helpful, trusting, empathetic, and cooperative. Being extraverted implies proactiveness, imitativeness, sociability, and risk-taking. Emotional stability means self-confidence and being easygoing.
