Introduction to Agreeableness
This section of your profile describes your interactions with other people. The ways we communicate our feelings, beliefs and ideas to others are influenced by our cultural backgrounds, the way we were raised,and sometimes which side of the bed we got up on this morning. Some of us are very mindful of othersmaking decisions we hope will be in their best interests, even if it means sometimes neglecting our owninterests. Others of us believe each person should be responsible for themselves, taking deep pride inour own character and independence with a firm belief that others are best served by doing the same.The following describes how you engage with others; illustrating the dimension of your personality thatdetermines your independence or your desire to reach out and touch others in meaningful ways.
 You are best described as:CONSISTENTLY TAKING CARE OF OTHERSWords that describe you:
SympatheticTrustingAltruisticSelflessTenderheartedCompassionateStraightforwardDeferentialGenerous
A General Description of How You Interact with Others
"What can I do for you?" These words probably feel very natural to you. More than most people, you aregenuinely interested in the well-being of others. If they are in trouble, you offer compassion and go out of your way to be helpful. If they need someone who will listen, you are attentive, trustworthy andsympathetic. And you are direct with them; when they need advice or counsel, you offer it in asstraightforward and direct a manner as you can.There may even be times when you put others' needs in front of your own. And you do so without theexpectation of some reward or recognition. Yours is a different kind of compassion; you are genuinelytenderhearted and take pleasure in helping others while expecting little or nothing in return. For you, it'snot tit-for-tat, you truly want to do things for others that will better their lives. You mean it when you ask,"What can I do for you?"
Negative Reactions Others May Have Toward You

Though your motives arise from genuine compassion, some people might think of you as "a little toogood to be true." They could suspect that your kindness is something you use to ingratiate yourself withothers or to get them to like you. Others may suspect that your altruism is a mask for your own problems;you take care of others but never let others get to know you well enough to offer you their care. Some of this suspicion may be genuine; they just can't believe you're this kind. But it may also be triggered byenvy; people see in you a tenderheartedness they don't find in themselves, and it makes themuncomfortable so they take it out on you with their suspicions.Another critical response others may have may be something you want to take a serious look at. If youspend your time taking care of others, you may not have enough left to take very good care of yourself. If you're always asking, "What can I do for you?", you may not focus enough on your own needs. You're sobusy taking care of others that you neglect yourself and empty your reserves of energy and good health.Like we said, give it consideration and if it doesn't fit move on.
Positive Responses Others May Have Toward You
For the most part, people will feel gifted to come across someone like you. For those you help, you will belight in the darkness, a hand up when they've fallen into a ditch. Your true graciousness and selflessnessis rather rare these days and is often a breath of fresh air in this all too often dog-eat-dog world. Otherswill see in you the kindness that each of us seeks in life, both in our own characters and in our relationships with others. And you will become a model of that honest compassion; someone others mayeven look up to. Hopefully that feels okay to you.

Introduction to Openness
How firmly committed are you to the ideas and beliefs that govern your thinking and guide your behavior?Some people trust their current ideas and beliefs the way a climber trusts the mountain; whichever way theymove, whether the climb is on a familiar trail or over new ground, there is something solid beneath them,something they count on.For others, new ideas, new solutions to old problems, new beliefs that replace tired convictions are likewelcome wind in their sails. They can hardly wait to tack in a new direction and ride a new idea throughuncharted waters. If it's new, it's interesting, and they're ready to explore.The following paragraphs describe your responses to new ways of thinking and believing. How do youhandle new information? Are you more like the climber on a familiar mountain or a sailor with a tiller in handand a fresh breeze to propel you? How you integrate and process new information about the world andabout others is a core aspect of your personality.
On the Openness Dimension you are:VERY CURIOUSWords that describe you:
ImaginativeCreativeIntellectualAdventurousUnconventionalArtisticProgressiveDaringInspired
A General Description of How You Approach New Information and Experiences
You are a very creative and imaginative person who is especially open to new ideas or new ways of thinkingabout old problems. You love to approach a conventional idea or a traditional way of doing things by walkingaround to the other side and explore it from a novel perspective. What's new is what interests you. Like anartist looking for a new way to see, you focus your imagination on envisioning ideas, events or problems incompletely original ways. You are intellectually progressive, which means you like to think and feel your wayinto unexplored landscapes where you let your sense of intellectual adventure romp freely.Because you are so curious you can also be very teachable. You learn from personal and interpersonalexperiences as well as from classrooms and textbooks. You crave new information, and toss and turn it inyour vivid imagination. When you come across an idea from someone else or a thought in your own headthat is particularly provocative or original, you light up. With wit and wisdom, Dr. Seuss describes you likethis: "Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!"
