A useful book for looking at personality traits. The Big Five is used by those who tend to eschew the use of Jungian or Enneagram typing. The focus of this book is the workplace. Pople are grade along a scale of five traits:
N Negative Emotionality reflects on the need for stability, so measures stress.
E Extraversion measures sociability
O Originality measure opennes to experience.
A Agreeableness reflects ones accommodation in the workplace nd the need for negotiation.
C Conscientiousness measures one focus and reflects on ones consolidation in the workplace.
It is fully as complicated as Jungian or Enneagram typing, but does not really require subscribing to a psychological philosophy that youare not sure about.
The authors do look at how all this functions in the workplce for leadership, selling, career planning, trouble-shooting, tem development and hiring decisions. It also gets into the managerial side of a company on the one hand as well as the employee side. ( )
