Describe personality trait theorists with whom you particularly agree and disagree, and explain

You have experienced firsthand one or more personality trait assessments this week. Take a moment to recall the assessment(s). Reputable tools like those in the Week 4 Learning Resources are developed based on personality trait theories. Through the readings in the text, you are examining those theories and the contributions of three key theorists: Gordon Allport, Raymond Cattell, and Hans Eysenck. In this Assignment, you will consider personality trait theories applied to your own life, evaluate the effectiveness of personality trait theories in explaining human behavior, and discuss the theorists about whose ideas you feel the strongest.
To prepare:
Review this week’s Learning Resources on personality trait theories and theorists.
Review the personality trait assessment you completed for the Discussion and your results, as well as any other assessments you explored.
Think about how you would apply your assessment results and personality trait theories in your personal and/or professional life. Be prepared to address two specific areas of functioning, such as academic, occupational, social, or others of your choosing.
By Day 7
Submit a 2- to 3-page paper that addresses the following:
Explain how applying personality trait theories to your assessment results might help you understand yourself and your relationships in two specific areas of functioning (e.g., academic, occupational, social, or others).
Explain whether you find personality trait theories more effective as an explanation for human behavior than psychoanalytic or humanistic theories, and provide your reasoning.
Describe personality trait theorists with whom you particularly agree and disagree, and explain your reasoning.

The personality test that I decided to take was the big five project. For open-mindedness I got 42% percent it stated that I do not typically seek out new experiences. I was honestly expecting that I am not a person to seek out new things when I get bored, I am used to the same things. For conscientiousness it gave me an 86% meaning I am well organized and can be relied on. I believe this to a certain extent I know I can be relied on but being organized is a hot or miss I am 50% of the time. One of the answers I am shocked with is extraversion It was 73% meaning I and sociable and enjoy the company of others. I do not believe that I am very social and tend enjoy being alone. For agreeableness I got 69% meaning I tend to consider the feelings of others, this makes much sense to me I always feel like I put other feelings Infront of my own. The last trait that it tested was negative emotionality I got 25% this meaning that I am generally relaxed. This was not surprising; I am a relaxed person I usually take everything with a grain of salt. The percent of this test is based on the rest of the people who take this test. For example, I am 42% less likely to seek out new experiences then the rest of the people who took this test.
If this test was used for the workplace there would be some strengths and limitations to this test. In our textbook it states that “Personality traits refer to consistent patterns in the way individuals behave, feel, and think” (Cervone & Pervin, 2019, p.182). The two limitations to this test is that a person can try and manipulate this test by picking the “right answer”. Another limitation would be that it is compared to other people that take this test meaning only if 2 other people took this test results might not be accurate. The two strengths of this test are that it reveals how much of a team player and if they will be reliable or not. Another one is that it is a broad and straight forward test and it explained exactly what this test is used for.
