She tends to be skeptical and to assume that others may be dishonest. P.’s straightforwardness is also very low with a scale score of 30. Those two facets seem related.

On the other hand, the client’s negative attributes like avoiding her aunt because she looks like her mother for example, can also be viewed as self critical feelings and limitations. In spite of the client’s minor setback in this example and her lack of social functioning in school, she does not have patterns of damaging self concepts. Thus, the social worker’s initial assessment concluded that the patient had affective self perception functioning with minor impediments.
Of the Big Five personality traits, I scored highest on neuroticism. I compared myself to my friend. My friend scored highest on extraversion. I scored lowest on extraversion, whereas my friend scored lowest on agreeableness. I was somewhat surprised at my results that my friend received. However, I was not surprised by my results. I am a typically anxious person, so I knew I would probably score high on neuroticism. However, I thought my friend would score higher on agreeableness. I don’t agree with some of these because I believe that my friend falls a little higher on the agreeableness, while I believe we both fall a little higher on the openness scale. I also believe there is more to a person’s personality than that.
a. According self tests using the Five Factor Model, my personality has low extraversion and emotional stability, a high degree of openness, and moderate levels of agreeableness and conscientiousness. Low extraversion is demonstrated in both professional and social envionments. While working a corporate job as a financial analyst, taking the time and initiative to interact with coworkers beyond the scope of the job was limited to a brief conversation once a day with the same two people. In large social gatherings, interactions are limited to familiar people with whom I have pre-existing friendships. If I attend a concert by myself, I will bring a book to read in between musical acts to prevent people from speaking to me. Low emotional
As mentioned, she took the IPIP-NEO online shortened version of the assessment in the comfort of her apartment. Her results mentioned that she is average in extraversion, which according to her demographic information regarding her social circle could be accurate, as she does have close friends, but her stress and anxiety could factor in where she does not open herself up as much to others outside of her social circle. She is average in terms of her friendliness, gregariousness, and cheerfulness, which seems to point out that she is an overall nice person, but does not go over the top in this regard with everyone she encounters, which is how the average person is. Her assertiveness is borderline average, which could suggest that her anxiety causes her to not be completely assertive as she does not want to interfere with the norms of her surrounding environment. Her activity level is extremely high, while her excitement seeking is low, which leads me to believe that she enjoys doing things, but does not enjoy adventuring outside of her comfort zone. Overall, according to this assessment, she is average in the categories that define extraversion, but her anxiety could be causing her to not score high in this

Public self -consciousness (PSC) describes the personality trait in which individuals are constantly concerned with how they appear to others, (Fenigstein, 1987). This trait is also positively correlated with fear of negative evaluation.

The two traits are closely linked and are significant predictors of social anxiety (Kocovski & Endler 2000).
