Ooh! So this is a question I’ve been wondering about. Are there bounds around each type’s Big-5 traits? Like do all (or, say, 99.9%ish) of SiTe people fall between the 0th and 60th percentiles for openness to experience? More specifically, I’ve been wondering if it’s feasible to ask a question like, “What is the median and standard deviation of openness to experience (as percentile rankings) among SiTe people?” Then, if you find that their median is 30% and their standard deviation is 10%, you could say something like, “Pretty much all SiTe people fall between the 0th and 60th percentiles for openness to experience.” And if you were able to say that, then what type of validity would that bring along with it? (especially considering how well established the big 5 is).


Anyway, here are my results:


Extraversion – 17th percentile – very low
Agreeableness – 65th percentile – high
Conscientiousness – 39th percentile – low
Neuroticism – 6th percentile – extremely low
Openness – 75th percentile – high
The Big Five personality dimensions are broad personality traits that describe the majority of ways that people can differ from each other. What does this mean?

Each of the Big-Five personality dimensions contains several smaller “facets.” What is a facet?
