Personality Traits (Ocean Model)


The purpose of learning about personality traits is to understand the differences between human beings. A few examples of personality terms include introverted, extroverted, shyness, perfectionism, love-thirst, narcissism, depression, and neuroticism. One of the most important models for personality traits is called the Ocean Model. This model considers five personality factors. These five factors include Openness (O), Conscientiousness (C), Extraversion (E), Agreeableness (A), and Neuroticism (N). Each of these factors includes a combination of more specific traits that are related to each other. The Ocean Model has many applications in technology. For example, understanding and predicting customer's interests in a product or service based on their feedback and comments on social media. Furthermore, it has applications in workplaces and organizations. For example, managers can understand their employee's personalities and use them to create a better culture in their teams. Additionally, assign employees to roles that better suit their personalities.
