How we design questions

Test candidates on core Short Big Five Personality Hiring Test topics

Conscientiousness: Conscientiousness is a measure of the extent to which individuals are organized, careful, and reliable. It is important to measure this skill in the test as it provides insights into a candidate's level of responsibility, attention to detail, and ability to manage tasks effectively.

Agreeableness: Agreeableness refers to the degree to which individuals are cooperative, friendly, and compassionate. Assessing this skill helps recruiters understand a candidate's ability to work well with others, maintain harmonious relationships, and contribute positively within a team.

Openness: Openness is a measure of an individual's willingness to embrace new ideas, experiences, and perspectives. Including this skill in the test enables recruiters to gauge a candidate's adaptability, creativity, and curiosity, which are valuable qualities in a rapidly changing work environment.

Extraversion-Introversion: Extraversion-Introversion measures an individual's preference for social interaction and stimulation. This skill is important as it helps recruiters assess a candidate's level of assertiveness, sociability, and energy level, which can impact their performance in roles that require frequent collaboration and networking.

Neuroticism: Neuroticism is a measure of the extent to which individuals experience negative emotions, such as anxiety, depression, and irritability. By including this skill in the test, recruiters gain insights into a candidate's emotional stability, resilience, and ability to cope with stress, which are crucial factors for overall job performance.

Big 5 Traits: The Big Five Traits, also known as the Five-Factor Model, comprise a set of five personality dimensions: conscientiousness, agreeableness, openness, extraversion-introversion, and neuroticism. These traits provide a comprehensive assessment of an individual's personality, allowing recruiters to gain a holistic understanding of a candidate's strengths, weaknesses, and potential fit within an organization.

What roles can I use the Short Big Five Personality Assessment Test for?

Here are few roles for which we recommend this test:

    Can I see a sample test, or do you have a free trial?


    The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions and the candidate experience of giving a test on Adaface.

    You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

    How do I interpret test scores?

    The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

    I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

    No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.
