"This test measures what many psychologists consider to be the five fundamental dimensions of personality" The Big Five Personality Test (2000). The psychologist of the test recommended that the test taker also rate someone else on the test (this author rated only Rodriguez from the reference given on the reference page). After rating Rodriguez, the score obtained is adequate. The score shows that Rodriguez is down to earth (Intellect 16%), reliable (Conscientiousness 92%), sociable (Extraversion 64%), good natured (Agreeableness 83%), and relaxed (Neuroticism 9%).

As shown above, Rodriguez scored high on Conscientiousness. His conscientiousness score was 92%. That shows that Rodriguez is reliable, well-organized, self-disciplined, and careful. Rodriguez scored low on Neuroticism with a 9%. That is not a bad thing however. His 9% reflects that he is calm, relaxed, secure, and hardy.
