    Openness and The Big 5

    Openness and The Big 5

    Our discussion of The Big 5 Personality Traits continues today with a focus on Openness. Do you consider yourself a creative person? Are you open to new experiences? Can you manage change--even if you don't like it? Are you curious about life and learning? These are all hallmarks of openness and this quality is directly related to health and well-being. People with a higher degree of openness tend to be more flexible thinkers and able to adapt more easily to the ups and downs of life. But if you think you are on the lower end of the openness spectrum, don't worry, because in this episode we cover some ways you can adopt a more open mindset by moving out of your comfort zone every once in a while.

How you answer these questions says a lot about how you operate in the world. These behaviors are part of what researchers call the Big 5 Personality traits. They exist on a spectrum within all of us, and by understanding how they work and contribute to who we are, we can also understand ourselves better and find greater satisfaction.
    Over the next few weeks, we'll have shows dedicated to the Big 5 traits and how they shape who we are.
