The Big Five Personality Inventory
The “Big Five” model of personality dimensions has emerged as one of the most well-researched and well-regarded measures of personality structure in recent years. The models five domains of personality, Openness, Conscientiousness, Extroversion, Ageeableness, and Neuroticism, were conceived by Tupes and Christal.
I am asked to evaluate the use of language or symbolism used by five different friends to my facebook personality domain (according to your own perception).
Then, I need to copy 10 posts of text, pictures or emoticons that appear in my facebook into Notepad.
I use a software named AntConc to analyze language or representation in all the 10 posts (example: d1_01. Txt to d1_10. Txt) used by my Facebook friends according to the personality domain.
Then I create a report on the frequency of phrases that show the personality of my facebook friends (not from the ELS/Linguistics students who are taking this course)according to the context of the interaction that causes them to use the phrase.
The Big Five traits are characterized by the following:
|1||Openness to Experience||curious, intelligent, imaginative.
High scorers tend to be artistic and sophisticated in taste and appreciate diverse views, ideas, and experiences.
|2||Conscientiousness||responsible, organized, persevering.
Conscientious individuals are extremely reliable and tend to be high achievers, hard workers, and planners.
|3||Extroversion||outgoing, amicable, assertive.Friendly and energetic, extroverts draw inspiration from social situations.|
|4||Agreeableness||cooperative, helpful, nurturing.People who score high in agreeableness are peace-keepers who are generally optimistic and trusting of others.|
|5||Neuroticism||anxious, insecure, sensitive.Neurotics are moody, tense, and easily tipped into experiencing negative emotions.|
