Discussion for The Big Five Personality Test
Jones Jennifer (Faculty)
This format is easy to use and very manageable from a time and content perspective for intro psych students. I will use it as a pre-class exercise. With something tangible in hand it opens up a myriad of opportunities for in-class activities that are self-reflective. I have not used it yet, but I play to in 5 weeks when we address personality. Great resource!

The personality test acted as a great tool for understanding the Big Five Factor Model. It was very self- explanatory and the test included a wide range of questions to cover each factor. The learner can fully engage in the activity because it offers a first-hand experience with a test that many psychologists use as a reference regarding personality differences. A very popular and somewhat difficult concept at times was portrayed in a manner that students can use and find intriguing. While the test was well-rounded, I would have provided more introduction information about personality and the Big Five Factor Model. I also found some of the questions to irrelevant. In addition, I would have liked the results to go more in-depth about each factor and explain to each student what their results symbolized.
