According to New Research, People Fit into These 4 Personality Types

The five factors have been defined as openness to experience,  conscientiousness,  extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism, often represented by the acronyms OCEAN or CANOE.

The breakdown into 4 types as follows:

Average: This personality type tends to be high in neuroticism and extraversion, and low in openness. Researchers wager that the typical person would probably line up with this personality type, though women are more likely to fall into this category than men. In “Sex and the City,” this’d be Carrie.

Reserved: This type is not open, neurotic, or extroverted, but they’re pretty agreeable and conscientious. Charlotte all the way.

Role Model: This personality type is low in neuroticism and high in everything else. You’re more likely to be a role model as you get older, and women are more likely to be role models than men. “These are people who are dependable and open to new ideas,” co-author Luís Amaral said in a press release. “These are good people to be in charge of things.” This would probably be a Miranda.

Self-Centered: This personality type is high in extraversion and low in openness, agreeableness, and conscientiousness. You’re less likely to fall into this type as you get older. This is your garden-variety Samantha.
