personality test – Questions like “who am I?”, “how am I?” or “why am I the way I am?” people ask themselves again and again, not only in the Toxic Family. On the Internet, you can find various tests under the Google search “personality test” that supposedly let you know who or what you are after completing a catalog of questions. From a psychological point of view, caution is advised here. A large part of the mostly free tests is not scientifically based or very outdated. This means that you can often do little with the result. On the other hand, if you tend to place some value in the outcome, be yourself deliberatelythat this will most likely affect you. But what actually is personality?


Personality is the sum of innate and learned characteristics of a person. So to speak, the union of self-image and external image. The concept of personality includes all internal processes such as fears, sensations, feelings or needs as well as external, visible behavior. A personality test is and remains an attempt to normalize characters. Character can never be pinned down to one point, but is to be understood as a range from ... to .... This range is one of the foundations for the scientifically recognized Big Five personality test, the im Toxic Family increasingly Application place.

Where does the Big Five personality test come from?

Coaching-Frankfurt-Business-Coaching-Frankfurt-Maßgeschneiderte Coachings, Keynotes und Trainings für Privatpersonen und Unternehmen. Ihr Coaching Institut Frankfurt am Main

As early as 1936, Allport and Odbert laid the foundation for today's Big Five model. They identified several thousand terms describing human personality in an English dictionary. They then challenged psychology as a science to determine how many categories can be used to uniquely describe a matter as complex as an individual's personality. It was not until the 80s that it finally became possible to effectively support evaluations using software programs in order to obtain reliable results. Finally, "five groups of synonymous terms could be shown with which the individual differences in personalities can largely be recorded" (Howard & Howard2002, pp. 23-25).




Today, these word groups form the five dimensions of the Big Five model, probably the most decisive personality test on the market.

The so-called Big Five or five-factor model for describing human personality has existed since the end of the 20th century. It is used in many ways and especially in the working world, for example in the coaching process for Teamdevelopment, management, personnel selection and many other areas. Since then, the Big Five personality test has been internationally regarded as the universal standard model in personality research and has been researched and confirmed better than almost any other model in psychology (application in over 3.000 scientific studies).




The Big Five personality test LPP from LINC Institute uses this by far the best model to explain personality. In summary, the Big Five personality test explains which behavioral preferences one shows in certain situations based on one’s personality profile (“how do I behave?”).

How is such a Big Five personality test structured?

In what is probably the most renowned personality test of the Big Five on the market from the LINC Institute, motives and competencies are analyzed and evaluated in addition to the Big Five. The characteristics of the Big Five personality test are:

1. Tolerance(cooperation vs. competition)

This dimension describes how someone typically behaves in social interactions. Agreeableness is not to be confused with the extraversion dimension!

2. Openness(Openness vs. Consistency)

This dimension captures the extent to which the person is interested in new things, is willing to open up or is willing to keep and pursue what has been tried and tested up to now.

3. Conscientiousness(conscientiousness vs. flexibility)

This dimension contains different perspectives. All of these are linked to human performance and individual work styles. In particular, it is about the questions of whether someone approaches a task in a very planned manner or rather spontaneously, how high the personal goals are set or how strongly one orients oneself to principles.

4. Extraversion(extraversion vs. intraversion)

The question of what I focus on in everyday life and in dealing with others provides information about this dimension. Is it my own inner experience and my interpretation of the outside world or rather the interaction with others and the resulting sensory impressions?

5. Neuroticism(Sensitivity vs. Emotional Stability).

The fifth and last dimension of the Big Five personality test describes a person's emotional sensitivity at one end of the scale and a person's psychological robustness in the face of crises, problems and resistance at the other end of the scale.

Big Five personality test is considered to be the most scientifically validated model

The motives explain underlying drivers such as the "what" and the "why" for the direction in which a person strives. The test draws on David McClelland's well-established motive model with the three main motives of relationship, achievement and influence. There are strong interactions between the Big Five and the motives, but they also differ significantly. Motifs provide a direction, the Big Five define personal style. The exact expression of competencies can only be measured by performance tests in which competency has to be shown, such as an IQ test. With the LINC personality test, the user's competency profile can be derived from their character traits in the Big Five, since there is a strong, verified correlation between the Big Five and the specific competencies. In this way you kill two birds with one stone.




"Each area of ​​the Big Five dimensions has a variety of different career opportunities that can be associated with it." (Howard & Howard2002, p. 138). The prerequisite for successful coaching is and remains the willingness to change and trust on both sides. With the personality test of the Big Five there is a scientifically founded and effective possibility to put yourself and the other person in the frame to get to know the coaching and to build trust.Reflection is thus stimulated in a natural way, which is an essential part of any coaching.




In coaching, tendencies and changes in personality can be crystallized over time, and motives and skills can be determined together. Together with your coach, you can steer the coaching process in your desired direction - sometimes through the results and analysis of your personality test. The nice thing is, we don't rate you on the Big Five personality test. In coaching, we analyze your unique dynamic personality together and leave room for development, creativity and self-discovery.

Professional coaching – what possible applications does the personality test offer?

The personality test itself is one thing. The other a synchronized professional coaching. Due to the wide range of applications, the personality test can be used very well at the beginning of a coaching process, during a coaching process or at the end of a coaching process. Assuming the test is used several times within a coaching process, different results may result. As already mentioned, personality is something dynamic and therefore never 100 percent tangible. The desired development over time can thus be mapped and checked very well. Possible fields of application for the Big Five personality test in connection with coaching are: personality development, Teamdevelopment, personnel selection, comparison of self and external image, couples counseling, mediation, management, sales




If you look around the Internet for personality tests, it quickly becomes clear that the sale of such tests is obviously flourishing. Countless providers in Germany are vying for the attention of users. Google returns 480 hits for the search term personality test. Current estimates assume that there are over 000 tests in the German-speaking area alone, many of which have a solid theoretical foundation and a clean methodological concept. On the other hand, there are countless dubious providers with untested in-house developments on the market, and users are faced with the very difficult task of separating the wheat from the chaff.




Pragmatists may take the position that a free market regulates itself and that high-quality offers will prevail in the long term. But if you take a close look at some personality tests, it quickly becomes clear that dubious methods have been on the market for decades and are still widely used.

Motives are the driving forces behind character traits and competencies that drive us to want to achieve a specific goal. Motives are thus an integral and essential part of personality. Everyone has all nine motives. Each motive is differently pronounced in everyone. Some of the motives drive your behavior more than others. Therefore, it is important to know the personal structure of the nine basic motives. Motives can also be seemingly contradictory. This is a sign of competing drivers and usually a useful starting point for personal reflection.




An essential added value for you is the structure, the significance and the possibility of interpretation of the Big Five personality test. In addition to an in-depth, well-founded analysis, you will receive an overview of the proportions of your motives. Here you can see very quickly which motifs are in the foreground. Accordingly, you will determine to what extent you correspond to the expression of the respective motive or not.




This represents the actual added value. Because the reflections that come to light through the well-founded results are of use to you as much as you deal with them. That's what we're here for, asking the right questions at the right time. What we see particularly often after a Big Five personality test are aha moments. Aha experiences are small insights that are extremely important for the further path of life.
