'Average' personality is a good thing
Here at Disqovery I've had some of our awesome beta users asking me:
Varun, why am I coming up as average in so many personality traits?
What being average means
First, here's some data about Neuroticism and Extraversion from our current users:
Why it's not a bad thing
How you should think about it
You are not as simple as a few personality scores. You've heard that before, I know. For example, an average extraversion score could be because you are a combination extraverted and introverted tendencies. You might be mostly average but still have one or two traits which are high or low, but those average traits are still an important part of your identity. Unlike intelligence, with personality traits more is not always better.
Hiring managers: don't assume that you always want to hire the most hardcore personalities. Extreme introverts, extroverts, neurotics, non-neurotics, etc. all carry their own advantages and disadvantages. We've seen how extraversion can help sales, but there is still "too much of a good thing."
How Disqovery can help
Disqovery helps you dive deeper. We go beyond just the Big Five personality traits to provide deeper facets of each. For extraversion, we help you understand your assertiveness, activity level, cheerfulness, excitement-seeking, friendliness, and gregariousness. These facets can offer a lot of color to break apart what your 'average' score is really made of.
Disqovery gives you a 'Personality Pattern' as your sixth insight. We look at your two most extreme personality traits figure out what kind of person you are. From 'debonair' to 'humble' there are 40 different personality patterns you could identify with.
Be average. Be proud.
