Types of personality traits

21 Sept 2022

In my previous article, I spoke about the first 2 types of personality traits: Openness and conscientiousness. In this article, I will speak about the remaining 3 types of personality traits.

This category describes your outgoing and energetic personality. Extraversion (also known as extroversion) is a personality trait that is characterized by excitability, sociability, talkativeness, assertiveness, and a high level of emotional expressiveness. Extraverts are outgoing and tend to gain energy in social situations. Being in the company of others makes them feel energized and excited. People who are introverted or have a low level of this personality trait are more reserved. They have less energy to expend in social situations, and social gatherings can be exhausting. Introverts frequently require solitude and quiet in order to "recharge."

Your agreeableness is defined as your friendliness, compassion, and willingness to assist others. Trust, altruism, kindness, affection, and other prosocial behaviors are examples of this personality trait. People with high agreeableness tend to be more cooperative, whereas those with low agreeableness tend to be more competitive, and sometimes even manipulative.

This category, which is sometimes referred to by its opposite trait, emotional stability, accounts for your emotional sensitivity as well as your proclivity to worry or be temperamental. Sadness, moodiness, and emotional instability are characteristics of neuroticism. 1 Individuals with high neuroticism are prone to mood swings, anxiety, irritability, and sadness. Those with low levels of this personality trait are more stable and emotionally resilient.
