Theories of personality are based on observations of how humans develop behavior patterns. Psychological testing assumes there are certain fixed aspects of human personality and those aspects can be identified through standardized measurements. As part of your application for a position, you may be administered one of these tests to determine if you are a good fit for the company. The Big Five personality trait assessment is in your Webliography. Take this assessment and comment on (1) its accuracy for you and (2) which of those traits may change over time.

In this second graded threaded discussion area, we will take an in-depth look at Personality by discussing how Personality Theories (Ciccarelli & White, 2015, pp. 502-524) relate to Terminal Course Objective 9 and 11:

TCO 9 (Given a friend who is lacking drive to succeed, or a colleague who is going through varying levels of involvement in, and commitment to, his/her goals, analyze the situation with regards to the factors that influence existing motivational levels, and develop a framework for improving such motivational levels).

TCO 11 (Given a need to understand, explain, and interpret someone’s behavior, examine the development, structure, and functioning of personality and compare and contrast the major theories, including the strengths and weaknesses inherent in each approach).

First, in your own words, define the “Big Five” Theory of Personality (O.C.E.A.N.; Ciccarelli & White, 2015, p. 520) – again, please remember that if you put content from an external source into your own words (paraphrasing), you still have to cite that content.
