Big Five refers to the five most important dimensions of personality: Extraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Emotional stability, Openness to Experience, Intellect or Creativity. These five factors are the proceeds of scientific research into personality-related words in a dictionary. Various researchers have laid the foundations for these factors, including Tupes & Christal (1961), Goldberg (1982) and Costa & McCrae (1985). This basic personality structure has been confirmed in various surveys. The five factor structure is the most widely accepted personality theory and is often applied during assessments.
Work-related Personality questionnaire
There are many Big Five Personality Questionnaires that are used for a range of objectives. They differ in substance and quality. Some are used in general psychology, others are specifically focused on assessment applications and can be used during selection processes and career development dialogues. Ixly has developed a personality questionnaire specifically focused on working situations. This questionnaire is incorporated in the Test-Toolkit and is called the Work-related Personality Inventory (WPI).
The Work-related Personality questionnaire also uses a five-factor structure, specifically focusing on work situations:
- Influence: the degree to which people are ambitious and wish to influence others
- Sociability: the degree to which people are extrovert and focused on others
- Drive: the degree to which people are driven and energetic
- Structure: the degree to which people are orderly and accurate in their work
- Stability: the degree to which people are immune to stress and self assured.
