Understanding Career Personality
The Big 5/45 with CAPPs report is intended for use to aid self-understanding and career research. Knowing one's personality profile in detail can help one understand oneself. Knowing the profiles of one's spouse or partner or child can also improve understanding and awareness. We can be more tolerant of each other if we know that our behaviors are shaped largely by our unique personality profiles through taking career tests such as this.
Some of us are innately more conscientious than others. Laziness is not simply "disobedience". Some of us are destined for highly responsible roles as leaders, by virtue of our very high scores on many personality facets. Indeed, combined with intellectual aptitudes and training, our personalities largely determine who we are and who we have the potential to become. Knowing ourselves well can help guide us into our most fulfilling lives and career paths, both in terms of careers and hobbies.
The AB5C was developed by Goldberg as a research instrument. The present author (McConochie) is a clinician and I/O practicioner. He saw potential value in the AB5C as a tool valuable in applied psychology. He developed a personal computer scoring and report preparation system for it. This instrument he named the "Big 5/45" to reflect its content. He also developed a system for predicting one's corresponding Career Area Predicted Preferences (CAPPs) scores based on the obtained personality scores as part of the Career Assessment Test.
The correlations between the 50 personality traits and 305 job self-ratings were entered into the CAPPs portion of the report preparation computer program, extending the CAPPs report to a total of 341 predicted career areas of greatest skill/satisfaction based on personality scores (the original 36 CISS areas and the additional 305).
