Big 5/OCEAN Test

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail
This is a personality test inspired by the Big 5/OCEAN/Five Factor model of personality psychology. The Big 5 can tell you many things about your behaviour and lifestyle and can be used to predict a lot about your behaviour and personality. Are you more creative and curious or are you more laid back and traditional? Are you more outgoing and chatty or are you more shy or reserved?

The Big 5 can give you a small indication to your most likely Myers Briggs Personality Type, and the best thing is that its traits are backed up, statistically consistent and easy to understand, test and measure. That means your test can be described as more accurate than most online personality tests. It does really describe you, and your behaviour, and actions, provided you answer honestly.

  1. I literally have always got INFP for years. Did this and got ISFP for first time ever?

    Hey I’d love to be the artist, I am an artist. But I’m very INFP I reckon. So not sure why I get the ISFP result here? I suppose ISFP are still healers and very much similar to what I am. But would like to know which I definitely am? Just did test again to double check and even when I was much more direct in my answers I still got ISFP. Interesting.

  2. Erik, I’ve read a few of your articles and listened to a few of your videos on my type, the INFP, and I must say that you are by far the most insightful writer on INFP’s I’ve listen to read thus far.

    Your insights make me feel truly seen and that hardly ever happens. Thank you for applying your talents to personality type, seeing the best in others and helping us to be our higher selves. You’re a very much appreciated. Truly, thank you.

  3. I just did the test again accepting my stressfulness and got O-72.5%, C-50%, E-12.5%, A-67.5%, N-80% but I still get INFJ which is not correct. I thought 80% neuroticism would change my result to INTP but it didn’t work. It seems a high agreeableness doesn’t match INTPs, which I think is wrong because I’m a nice, positive and agreeable INTP.

  4. I’m an INTP for sure but got INFJ in this test. O-70%, C-50%, E-17.5%, A-77.5%, N-42.5%. In what way is this not compatible with INTP? Because I’m agreeable and not so neurotic? I’m an optimist, trust people and have a hard time saying “no” but I’m a critical thinker and need proof to be sure before I do something or accept some body’s argument. Maybe I’m more neurotic than I believe to be and that’s why I got the wrong type? Could be. I’ll try it again trying to score higher in the questions related to stress.

  5. Got INFP on Big5 and ENFP with your standard test. Im incline to stay at INFP after swinging btw: INTP, INFJ, ENFP ( I/E 50%-50%) for couple of years ( what throws me is the INFJ ghosting that im so so good at ) INTP i get when im in stressful life situations.. but it is very clear change of attitudes ( within me ) btw INFP and INTP states. ( ( ENFP i state when im very happy with life). I love MBTI. and i have been long time listener of your YouTube channel. Huge thanks for your passion

    1. Oh what?! I just got ISTJ on your big 5 test! Every single mbti or big 5 test I have ever taken (at least 30!), including your mbti test has put me as a strong INFJ. How has this got me as an ST? The S I am particularly interested by as that’s such a problem for me. I got low S marks on your mbti test… actually I got zero for SE! I know these two tests are different but this is hugely different. I’d rather be an ISTJ though I can’t lie.

  6. Hmm. I looked up the cognitive functions of an ENFP and they don’t fit me? Can you please help me finally figure it out… i have literally been diagnosed as every feeler under the sun. I just wanna know hat I am

  7. Not exaggerating, I’ve taken the MBTI test on various websites for the sixth time now(just wanted to be sure), and yes, I always get INFP, so I guess I am indeed an INFP, confirmed haha ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. This is amazing! Your videos and blogs are amazing! Thank you, Erik. I also got INTP on this test as well. This helped me a lot in finding ways on how to control my anxiety and lower my neuroticism.
