Openness to experience is one of the Big Five Personality traits and the first which we will focus on in this mini-series on personality. Openness is much less known than many of the other traits and was not recognised as its own distinct trait for years. The Big Five Super Trait: Openness to Experience Openness to Experience is one of the super traits belonging to the Big Five model used to describe the major drivers of human personality.

  • What is someone good at who is high in openess, very low in conscientiousness, high in neuroticism, high in agreeableness and very low in extraversion?

  • Extremely high on openness.
    Extremely high on conscientiousness.
    Extremely low on extroversion.
    Extremely low on agreeableness.
    Low on neuroticism.

    Maybe that explains why I’m an alien XD

  • Thank you for this. I recently had my “scores” established through Jordan Peterson site. It turns out that I have to dedicate a lot of time to working on myself since my results are almost all outliers. If I can allow myself to share for the sake of our common curiosity. O: 93% C: 0% E: 97% A: 90% N: 61%. It is worth mentioning that I have a bipolar type II-diagnosis.

  • Your descriptions are always so very accurate.

    I often experience this back and forth struggle between being extremely productive and having very strict guidelines (probably from my high conscientiousness) and yet getting constantly distracted by abstract ideas or fantasy (due to my very high openness). This bothers me very much and it is a daily battle.

  • What about people with high openness, but everything else pretty low. That would be me. My psychologist says I might have autism. And honestly people think I am pretty weird, even though I am quite happy usually.

  • I don’t know if I am an extreme introvert. I want to eat alone, cannot stand people talking loudly in cafes etc. I want a relationship but also like my own space so much. Try not to share my private life people yet I can look very friendly and cheerful sometimes (it makes me damn tired and the next day I have to recharge myself). How do we measure introversion?

  • @drgrande what about low agreeableness, extreme extroversion and extreme openness to experience. Low neuroticism and normal to high conscientiousness? Career advice?

  • The fact that everyone keeps repeating the same thing about the 5 traits ad nauseum instead of trying to analyze COMBINATIONS of the traits and personality matrix beggers belief

  • I’d say that very high in openness also equates to bad leadership skills (that is, if you’re not extremely low in agreeableness). Because the openness trait makes you more intrigued and able to shift and change opinions regarding issues debated. When in fact leadership means making and sticking to a lot of decisions, even though they might be wrong. Just to move the ship forward in one direction

  • I scored 4% in conscientiousness and 98% in openness and I’m having severe difficulty coping with life… how do I seek help? Psychoanalysis? (and I scored 50% in Extraversion, 27% agreeableness and 29% in neuroticism, and I’m 23 years old so hopefully conscientiousness will rise as I age..)

  • Dr Grande you have to smile more. You don’t seem like you enjoy anything!?
    Your OCEAN: assess you as moderate openness, high conscientiousness, low in extraversion, moderate agreeableness, and low neuroticism. How did I do?

  • I did not know too much about openness to experience before viewing this video. I think it’s interesting that it’s the biggest predicts of success out of all of the personality traits and that it is the most heritable.

  • Good explanation of openness to experience. My score on openness to experience was low indicating that i think in plain and simple terms. I would be described as down-to-earth, practical, & conservative

  • Different combinations of personality traits seem to fit well with different skills and different careers. I can see why it is beneficial to take a personality test, especially if you are choosing your career path.

  • Early childhood education programs also,dont change IQ to psychologists great sorrow in the 60s, 70s and 80s, we wanted it TO! SO much we wanted it to…but no. Inherited SORRY! WE WANT people to be equal because we are democratic in our thinking. WE want equality of opportunity to,translate,into successful lives. RE character, thatmisma totally different construct…character or moral development. THere are high IQ psychopaths and sociopaths, but especially psychopaths sitting in prisons all over America…people can and do use their high IQ to do horrible things.Yes re linguistics…..learning lannguage… there is so,much research on these topics because in the 70s onwards we psychologists so desperately DID want to,discover how to,raise IQ. FAIL!

  • It makes sense that individuals high in agreeableness demonstrate poor leadership skills. I imagine that individuals high in agreeableness in managerial or supervisory positions may appear as though they’re trying to be friends with their subordinates rather than be their supervisors.

  • This video ties in well with the video on how the different traits are associated with mental disorder symptoms but goes ahead to show the different characteristics of people who score low or high on the 5 domains of personality trait

  • Test subjects who are given magic mushrooms have been shown to rate significantly higher in openness over a substantial period of time. Shrooms cause neurogenesis in the brain (“opening more connections” as I understand it). Maybe openness is directly related to how well “connected” your brain cells are.

    I don’t really know much about all this, just throwing it out there.

    I believe it was John Hopkins University that conducted the experiment.

  • Thank you for publishing this! Enjoying the series immensely! Really awesome, wow. <3 I do have a question though. Correct me if I'm wrong please. Shouldn't the answer in the last example (at 1:29:06) be 7 in stead of 3? I can’t really draw it out here (can only use text as response). My reasoning: every line of triangles has all three colors (so, the triangle at x must be black). That leaves answers 3, 5, 7. The vertical stripes in each line have only two colors, one instance of one, and two instances of another (1st line: yellow, blue, yellow; 2nd line: yellow, black, x; 3rd line: blue, black, black), so vertical stripe at x must be either yellow or black. This leaves answers 5 and 7. The horizontal stripes also have only two colors per line (1st line: black, yellow, black; 2nd line: black, blue, x; 3rd line: yellow, blue, blue). It can’t be 3, because of the vertical stripes, which leaves answer 7. Doesn’t matter if you check from left to right, or up-down. Thanks!

  • Do you all agree that the mathematicians are the most intelligent students??
    Because i think that everyone “roughly speaking ” worked hard and practiced enough exercise… can be good at math, and get good degrees at it!!

  • Number of digits I’ve bounced between some jobs one of them require numeral memorization when I start each time my quantity is around 4-5 by the time I leav between 7-8 numbers.
