Big Five Inventory BFI Assessment

The Big Five Inventory is a personality test that measures five subscales.

  1. Openness to experience (inventive/curious vs. consistent/cautious)
  2. Conscientiousness (efficient/organized vs. extravagant/careless)
  3. Extraversion (outgoing/energetic vs. solitary/reserved)
  4. Agreeableness (friendly/compassionate vs. critical/rational)
  5. Neuroticism (sensitive/nervous vs. resilient/confident)

Neuroticism can be used as a predictor in sex addiction. Openness can be a predictor of cognitive flexibility, important for emotion regulation. Extreme scores in agreeableness can be seen as a form of attachment insecurity (trauma).

Self-awareness is critical in mental health recovery. What we can name, we can tame. Doing these assessments can help you become more self-aware. This data also helps your therapist/coach know you better and can individualize a therapy/coaching plan quicker and more effectively.
