personality traits

  1. Big Five
    I feel like Big Five describes traits people look for in natural leaders, though there needs to be other names for the various traits, without the negative connotations: Open Minded (Spiritual-Intellectual Growth): being open to new ideas and ways of thinking, and viewing intellectual...
  2. General Psychology
    In the book, On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society, American author Dave Grossman interviewed a veteran, who claims that the majority of people are sheep, in that they are incapable of "true aggression", "bloodlust", "battle fury", "bloodwrath", or...
  3. General Psychology
    Representation styles (four temperaments): Visual people - "Sanguine", fast movements, appear active and enthusiastic Auditory people - "Melancholic", medium-speed movements, appear analytical or quiet Olfactory people - "Phlegmatic", slow movements, appear peaceful and relaxed "Choleric"...
  4. Sex and Relationships
    After examining the correlation between my personality traits and my friendships, I found out that, as I am really open, conscientious (and extraverted) at the same time, I only have friends that are either really open, or really conscientious. However I also found out, after further...
  5. Myers Briggs Forum
    A general consensus from the members of PerC through comments and poll-taking. Keep in mind the criteria of what is attractive varies for each person. But I guess the poll is just meant to see what type accommodates most of these different criteria and through the comments, we can see the kind...
  6. Type 4 Forum - The Individualist
    I am trying to get a better grasp on Enneagram Type 4's. I feel like most Type 4 descriptions seem very mystical and wordy, very clinical and abstract. A curiosity I had, was about Type 4's and their relationship to art. Most descriptions of Enneagram Type 4's include art and creativity as...
  7. General Psychology
    Hi all :) I'm a master's student from the University of Liverpool, currently conducting a research study investigating the relationship between personality traits and the everyday experiences of the Black British community. If you could spare just 15-20 minutes of your day, I'd really...
  8. Blog
    About personality: To read someone is to understand the tendencies of traits that people can at times be told is their disorder after being diagnosed at a hospital. (I don't like the word disorder, as it can be discouraging) Shh. Do not self diagnose, if you're going to try to say you have a...
  9. General Psychology
    :ninja: I don't really know. I'm reading a lot of organizational psych lately and clearly premeditation (lacking), urgency, and sensation seeking are elements related to impulsiveness. These are pretty neutral things though. I have been looking at value of what I'm doing, environmental...
  10. INTP Forum - The Thinkers
    I hate posting threads. And this is why... I always get excited about an idea... :crazy: ...but sometimes it is hard to explain to others just why it is so great. Or it turns out to be crap anyway. I then feel like some ENTP wannabe for having even bothered. :blushed: Also, I *like* being...
  11. ENTP Forum- The Visionaries
    So I'm curious, what personality disorders and mental illnesses are ENTP's most prone to? Which ones are they least prone to? I use to be a little paranoid, but I think that's been replaced by sociopathic tendencies (although I do have a high moral code) from dissociative states. I mean, why...
  12. Type 7 Forum - The Enthusiast
    So I'm curious, what personality disorders and mental illnesses are type 7's most prone to? Which ones are they least prone to? Do you think there's a difference between 7w8 and 7w6 for these 2 questions? I'll go first. I can be a little OCD from time to time and can definitely be...
  13. General Psychology
    So this is probably a better place to ask than most. I'm curious as to where the lines between personality traits, personality disorders, and mental illnesses lie. It seems like I have a lot of the traits that are exhibited in antisocial personality disorders (sociopaths), schizoid personality...
