    ok, I took my BFI & it verified just about my idea of personality type but I was somewhat surprised to score highest on Openness.

      Hi bob! The best part about these personality quizzes is the insight they can provide. Embrace your Openness! 🙂 -Danielle and the Science of People Team

      I think all the artsy answers fall under ‘openness’. So, if Creative Live brought you here… 🙂

  2. Tanja Jensen

    I scored highest in openness (37) and neurotiscm (31). No wonder I often feel like being in conflict with myself. I really have some work to do….

      Hi, Tanja! One thing you can do to overcome the struggle between wanting to be in control (neuroticism) and wanting to try new experiences (openness) is to schedule time to refuel. After meetings, networking events or any other mildly stressful event, give yourself some time to recover. Thanks for watching! -Danielle and the Science of People Team

    I did the test after watching Vanessa on Create Live and understanding my own personality better helped me so much understanding other people better as well, can’t wait to use this knowledge in my own business!

    The higher the Open-ness, the higher the creative flow? … Seems like a common strait among artists, as it’s in our job description to be open to our imagination, open to new ideas, open to inspiration and new ways to accomplish a project. My favorite part of my personality, without a doubt. I want to leave behind the anxiety and fear over being good enough though… is that neurotic?

  5. Karrie P Bond

    Really interesting. I actually wonder if the results could vary over time. If I answer the questions in the middle of my busiest time of year, for example, versus when things are slow. Or if there would be a shift after attending a big conference, versus after attending a class.

    Hi Patrick, the number at the far right of your graph is the number your scores are out of (it’s different for each person). So if the number on the right is 60, any scores above 45 would mean “high” in that factor, any score around 30 would mean “medium” and any score 25 or less would mean “low”.
