In five years, I think one aspect of psychology that I will utilize in my daily life is the Big Five. Ever since we learned about the Big Five earlier this semester, I have been using it to analyze several of my classmates from both first and second semester, and have made some very interesting observations.
One classmate has shown high extraversion, and low conscientiousness. He is consistently zipping around campus on high speeds without his bike helmet. This person, as it turns out, may want to be an entrepreneur, which may go along with high levels of thrill-seeking and risk-taking behavior.
Another student is studying to be a classical musician. This person is very intellectually curious and creative, signs of openness to experience. Combined with this is a high level of conscientiousness, shown by her willingness to practice 4 hours every day. I think this combination of personality traits will likely help her succeed in her chosen field.
A third classmate has shown high levels of agreeableness. She avoids controversy and conflict whenever possible, which goes along with her interest in a field such as politics, diplomacy, or human relations.
In conclusion, an analysis of the Big Five may provide helpful insights into individuals' career choices.
