my top 10 traits


You are in touch with your emotions, and sometimes you  react before you think. The good news: you don’t tamp down your  feelings. The bad news: you sometimes say or do things that you later  wish you could take back.

You do not live your life on an even keel; you do not go for long periods without experiencing some mood swings.


You like to get to the bottom of things. You’re not content knowing what someone did; you want to know why they did it.

You  don’t simply take things as they are and move on; you’re not content  skimming along on the surface; you don’t feel you’re wasting time by  digging for the meaning of things.


You’re comfortable expressing yourself in words and  actions, with no self-censorship. You believe that if someone doesn’t  like what they see it’s not your problem, but theirs. A high score on  the “accessible” trait suggests that you have a lot of friends,  socialize often, and enjoy rap/hip-hop music.

You don’t see the  need to keep your thoughts to yourself, or to have a zone of privacy  that encompasses only yourself and a small circle of friends and  relatives.


You have a knack for knowing what’s going on in the  hearts and minds of those around you, without their having to tell you  explicitly. People tend to turn to you with their problems because they  know you care, and that you will likely offer good advice and a helping  hand.

You do not feel that people with sad stories are just looking for attention, or have brought their problems upon themselves.


You would rather hang out with others than spend time  alone, and you’d far rather be doing something with your friends than  just sitting around. You’re happy in a crowded room, club, stadium, or  auditorium.

You’re not a private person who is ill at ease in a group; you don’t view excessive socializing as a waste of time.


You have a genuine interest in other people. You’re a  natural host, and are always thinking about how you can increase the  happiness of those around you. When friends have problems or are in  trouble, you’re usually the first person they turn to for aid and  comfort. Scoring high on the “warm” trait suggests that you are among  those who enjoy domestic activities — doing things around the house —  and are enthusiastic about charitable work, helping others, and making  the world a better place.

You don’t always say exactly what you’re thinking; you don’t like the idea of causing anyone pain because of your criticism.


You are gentle with others, both physically and  emotionally. You are careful not to upset people and go out of your way  to find the nicest way to say something. You naturally focus on the fact  that the world is full of wonderful people, places, and things. More  often than not, people with a high score on the “tender” trait enjoy  spending time with children, love romantic movies, and are enthusiastic  about making the world a better place.

You don’t think of yourself  as tough-minded or gruff, nor do you need to be seen as some kind of  objective source of truth and rationality.


You get excited easily, allow yourself to react without  censoring your feelings, and sometimes blurt out the first thing that  comes to mind.

You generally don’t consider what you’re about to say before you open your mouth to speak.


You let it all hang out, and those around you always know what you’re going through.

You are not isolated from your emotions; no one would call you “cold-blooded,” or even “cool as a cucumber.”


You come up with a lot of ideas; if one doesn’t work out,  there’s always another waiting in the wings. You often have interesting  solutions to difficult problems. You’re practically a one-person  brainstorming session.

You are less interested changing the world  than in dealing with things as they are. Unlike those who spend all  their time trying to solve problems, you prefer to zero in on things  that work and stick with them.
