  3. Neuroticism (or Emotional stability)
  4. Openness (or Intellect / Imagination)
  5. Extraversion

If you are a coach, the full Big 5 test is included as part of your Evalinator subscription. You can combine the Big 5 test with a DISC, Strengths Finder, or a Wheel of Life assessment to get a full picture of your client’s needs.

All of these assessments are included in your subscription. You can also combine these with custom assessments that are tailored specifically to your coaching practice.

They all come with goal-setting features, and can be hosted on your website to provide a white-labeled experience to your clients. They all also have demographic profile fields (age, gender etc.) and benchmarking to help you work with your clients in more detail.

What are the Big 5 Personality Factors

This scientific Big 5 Personality assessment that you can create for your practice is based on 50 key factors identified by Dr.  Lewis R Goldberg at the Oregon Research Institute. IPIP is in public domain.


High scores on conscientiousness indicate that you tend to be disciplined and detail-oriented. This implies that you tend to have less difficulty meeting the goals you set or completing tasks assigned to you.


High scores on agreeableness indicate that you come across as helpful and sensitive. As a result, you will tend to get along better with people because you will inspire trust. 


High scores on extraversion indicate that you are generally outgoing and comfortable meeting and mingling with people. Low scores indicate that you tend to be more reserved.   

Openness to Experience

High scores on openness to experience indicate that you are by nature curious and more adventurous. On the other hand, if you score low on this category, it would indicate that you may not prefer more familiar and set routines.  

Emotional Stability (vs. Neuroticism)

Low scores on Emotional Stability indicate that you are more likely to tend to feel anxious and moody. You may also be prone to having low self-confidence.
