Personality traits reflect people’s characteristic patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Personality traits imply consistency and stability – someone who scores high on a specific trait like Extraversion is expected to be sociable in different situations and over time. Thus, trait psychology rests on the idea that people differ from one another in terms of where they stand on a set of basic trait dimensions that persist over time and across situations.
Even though I have taken a number of personality tests myself in order to evaluate my very own personality traits, I do have my doubts in its results accuracies and would never judge or even hire / fire people solely based on such tests outcomes only.
