Which of Cattell's personality traits do you think you express the most?

Posted by: PetersSmith

Raymond Cattell concluded that a total of 16 personality traits were the source of all personalities, and that every single person had these traits to some degree. Which trait do you think you express the most? I included what the "higher range" means, so if you depict those personalities a lot, then you should probably consider voting for that option. I also won't believe anyone who votes for "emotional stability". I also bet most people will choose "reasoning".

People on this site sure think highly of their own mental capabilities. That is not actually surprising though, due to the nature of debates.

Banjos42: Or due to the internet causing narcissism in individuals.
