Introduction To Traits, Psychometrics And The Big 5 – A Personality Guide By Jordan B. Peterson 

Till now, we have covered half of the personality guide. We came over the engineering part, which we can say is clinical psychology. From this lecture, we will go to the biological aspect of psychology. In this lecture,  we will start discussing the development of modern trait theory. Psychologists, experts in measurement and statistics, discovered extraversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness to experience and began delineating their social significance and biological underpinnings.

Key Points

 Jordan pinned all the personality traits under five basic groups to modify the study and research.

  • We have to investigate the value of philosophy to understand all the clinical psychological theories.
  • As clinical physicians working in psychology, we have two aims that involve using theories to make the lives of patients less terrible and add up to the quality of their lives.
  • The key to being a prosperous clinical psychologist is to go for a developed communication and set limits between prospective for a good and a bad lifestyle.
  • Having a structure for life is more effective than having no arrangement in life.

 In this lecture Jordan B. Peterson discusses the five big personality traits. Personality traits are measured using the Big Five Personality Traits model, which looks at five fundamental characteristics of people’s personalities. Discoveries from multiple separate studies dating back to the late 1950s have informed this theory. However, it was not until the 1990s that the vehicle as we know it began to take shape.

The five traits discussed above are Extraversion or Introvert, Natural reactions, Agreeableness, Openness, and Conscientiousness. If we go into details, we will find Openness is frequently referred to as “Intellect” or “Imagination,” It is a measure of your level of creativity and your yearning for new information and experiences.

Extraversion/introversion is the personality trait that assesses your amount of friendliness and openness to new experiences. If you are more likely to go for unique interaction and ready to meet new people in your life, you are an extrovert. But if you are less social with some respective boundaries, you might be referred to be an introvert.

Conscientiousness is a characteristic that examines the amount of attention you exercise in your personal and professional life. If you have a high level of conscientiousness, you are likely to be well-organized and meticulous, and you will understand how to develop plans and see them through to completion. If you receive a low score, you will be careless and sloppy.

Natural Reactions, often known as “Emotional Stability” or “Neuroticism,” is a psychological test that analyses emotional reactions. Those who react calmly to unpleasant news have a calm personality; meanwhile, those who get aggressive may develop a negative aspect of their character.

Agreeableness assesses how well you get along with other people. If you are more likely to work with a team, you are more agreeable. To know more about these personality traits, visit 2017 Personality 14: Introduction to Traits/Psychometrics/The Big 5 a brief lecture by Jordan B. Peterson.

Opinion Lecture Fourteen Jordan Peterson 

In my notes i made a slight typo but sod it that was my understanding of the big 5 extraversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, conscientiousness and openness to experience. I certainly can see this in people, and will at some point plan to take the test. Interesting but as suspected not such a good story, but certainly some good insight.
