Personality is a defining factor in our everyday lives. It affects how we interact with others and how we understand ourselves. In five years I will remember the big five personality traits. The big five personality traits are openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. By knowing and understanding a person's score on the big five personality traits you can learn a lot about who they are and what they are likely to enjoy. Being aware of someone's personality traits can help you interact with them better and promote a relationship. I will not only remember the big five personality traits in the future but also use them to help get along with others. For example if someone scores low on openness to experience then maybe they would prefer to do something that they have done before and is therefore in their comfort zone rather than try something new. Knowing the big five can also help explain why some people don't get along and just can't seem to be friends. Their personality traits could be on opposite sides which means they probably enjoy very different things and act very differently from one another. The big five personality traits can also give insight into someone's fears and desires. Someone who scores low in extraversion will probably be uncomfortable and possibly afraid of being forced to talk to and be around large groups of people for an extended amount of time.
