More detailed Big 5 test

Courtesy of Steve Hsu, I found a more detailed online Big 5 personality assessment. This one takes much longer, but it has subdomain scores that can help people delve more deeply into their personality, and stave off objections that "I'm not really like that". The Out of Service Big 5 test paints a pretty broad brush, so at least sometimes people get put off by it.

This longer test is pretty good, I took it and here is a summary of my results. Each is scored 0-99, with 0 being low.

If you want more information, read this page by Sanjay Srivastava. Srivastava talks about the origins of the test, including the interesting fact that it has two names, Big 5 and OCEAN, because two different groups of researchers came up with the same five factors in different ways and only later found out they were the same.
