Introduction This portfolio will provide an analysis of my intrapersonal effectiveness contextualised by the Five-Factor Model’s ‘Big Five’ personality traits. A theoretical understanding of intrapersonal effectiveness and the Five-Factor Model (FFM) will preface a discussion of my intrapersonal effectiveness, framed by results from the International Personality Item Pool (NEO IPIP) questionnaire.

2.2 Career Goals I am currently studying a Bachelor of Business and a Bachelor of Mathematics, to become an actuary within the next 10 years. The actuarial occupation was identified as conventional, investigative and enterprising, when measured by Holland’s RIASEC codes, which consist of; realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and conventional (Armstrong, Allison, & Rounds, 2008; Wille, & De Fruyt, 2014). Whilst the investigative dimension shows limited correlations with the Big Five, the conventional and enterprising traits both have strong positive correlations with conscientiousness and negative correlations with neuroticism (De Fruyt, & Mervielde, 1997) (see Appendix A). Furthermore, the enterprising dimension has a positive correlation with extraversion (De Fruyt, & Mervielde, 1997) (see Appendix A). It is evident that, to be a successful actuary, I will need to establish high conscientiousness and extraversion, and low neuroticism. 3.0 Kaitlyn’s Intrapersonal Effectiveness In order to assess my intrapersonal effectiveness, I completed a NEO IPIP questionnaire consisting of 50 items. My results are recorded below (see Table 1). Personality Dimension Score out of 50 Score as a percentage Evaluation of Score Neuroticism 47 94% Very High
