What to do when your jaw aches and you can’t sleep:

Take an online test:

Your Five Factor Personality Profile


You have medium extroversion.
You're not the life of the party, but you do show up for the party.
Sometimes you are full of energy and open to new social experiences.
But you also need to hibernate and enjoy your "down time."


You have medium conscientiousness.
You're generally good at balancing work and play.
When you need to buckle down, you can usually get tasks done.
But you've been known to goof off when you know you can get away with it.


You have high agreeableness.
You are easy to get along with, and you value harmony highly.
Helpful and generous, you are willing to compromise with almost anyone.
You give people the benefit of the doubt and don't mind giving someone a second chance.


You have low neuroticism.
You are very emotionally stable and mentally together.
Only the greatest setbacks upset you, and you bounce back quickly.
Overall, you are typically calm and relaxed - making others feel secure.

Openness to experience:

Your openness to new experiences is high.
In life, you tend to be an early adopter of all new things and ideas.
You'll try almost anything interesting, and you're constantly pushing your own limits.
A great connoisseir of art and beauty, you can find the positive side of almost anything.


  1. You came out better than I did on it!

  2. P.S. I hope your jaw has stopped hurting.

  3. You and I came out the same on some of these. Actually, I retook the test and my extroversion was higher as was my conscientiousness was higher too.

    Right or wrong I enjoy killing time with these tests. Something screwed up in my html, though, so mine didn't look as good on the page as yours did.

  4. I have been trying to learn stock trading the way it happens in the United states for the past one and a half years. Last month, I bumped into some trading psychology literature which stated that the trading system must be according to your personality and temprament.
    That was quite a revelation.

    Why stop at personality alone. When one considers that there is something like "Career Meditation" to help a person determine his true potential, why not go the whole hog when one considers the fact that some people languish for a lifetime in the wrong occupation.

  5. I truly like the part about your "Agreeableness!"

  6. oooooooooh, I love quizzes. It's so sad, I hardly even read the answers, i just like doing them :)

  7. I read this post last night but one quiz led to another quiz to another quiz... Had fun though! Thanks

  8. I haven't tried this quiz yet. I'll let you know when I do!

  9. Jody—Thank you.

    Catt—Thank you. What do you find neat about it?

    Mike—How did you come out? Thanks, I fear I may have an infection in that jaw.

    Squirl—I wonder what would happen if I retook the quiz? I have a habit of trying to “psych out” the questions the second time around.

    Hiren—Quizzes such as this one are more of a game than anything else. I don’t think I would make any life decisions based upon this one.

    Abby—Thank you. Sometimes I think my “Agreeableness” costs me a lot, but never more than I am willing to give.

    Song—There are plenty on the Internet to take. Have fun with them!

    Sonson—Sounds as if you and Song have a similar leisure pursuit!

    Punkmom—Yes, let me know.
