Individual Differences Investigation
We notice that lots of lifters respond differently to a wide variety of training stimuli. Past investigations into why people respond so wildly differently to similar training stimuli haven't yielded satisfactory answers. So in order to start forming some valid observations, we want to collect some basic data on you and your best training.

Extraversion *
Please enter your percentile score
Your answer
E- Accuracy *
How accurately do you feel the percentile score for Extraversion reflects your personality? Remember that people high in extraversion are talkative, sociable, and love to be around people. They are adventurous, take risks, and generally view life as a playground. They tend to experience positive emotions. In contrast, individuals low in extraversion, or introverts, tend to prefer to withdrawal and spend time alone. They are able to enjoy activities that provide lower levels of stimulation, and may prefer social situations that allow close conversation with a few friends rather than high-energy situations with many people. They prefer to play it safe and not take too many risks. They may be more even-keeled in their emotions and not experience as many high-highs.
Agreeableness *
Please enter your percentile score
Your answer
A- Accuracy *
How accurately do you feel the percentile score for Agreeableness reflects your personality? Remember that people high in agreeableness are motivated to maintain positive social relationships. They are empathetic, caring, and may hide their emotions in order to get along better with others. People low in agreeableness don't place a a huge emphasis on maintaining positive relationships with others. Because of this they may be more blunt and forthcoming with their emotions, as opposed to hiding them for the sake of good relationships. They may be more likely to express their individuality, and less likely to be taken advantage of by others.
Conscientiousness *
Please enter your percentile score
Your answer
C- Accuracy *
How accurately do you feel the percentile score for Conscientiousness reflects your personality? Remember that highly conscientious people are organized, responsible, orderly, and dutiful. They tend to respect authority and follow rules. Because they are organized and responsible, they tend to be on time to meetings. People low in conscientiousness can be more careless, spontaneous, and unstructured. They may have a more difficult time making it to meetings on time, but they may also be seen as more relaxed by their peers.
Neuroticism *
Please enter your percentile score
Your answer
N- Accuracy *
How accurately do you feel the percentile score for Neuroticism reflects your personality? Remember that people high in neuroticism are likely to experience frequent negative emotions, including stress, anxiety, and feelings of low self-worth. On the other hand, individuals high in neuroticism may experience a richer array of emotions. They are also more vigilant in detecting dangers in their surroundings--both real and imagined. Individuals low in neuroticism tend to be more emotionally stoic. They don't experience a wide array of negative emotions, and may stay close to their emotional baseline at most times. On the extreme side of low neuroticism, people may be unaware and/or unafraid of legitimate dangers around them.
Openness *
Please enter your percentile score
Your answer
O- Accuracy *
How accurately do you feel the percentile score for Openness reflects your personality? Remember that Openness is a broad, diffuse personality dimension. Presently, most researchers call this personality dimension Openness to Experience. People who are high in openness tend to love art, music, and literature. They are highly creative, whimsical, and insightful. They tend to be prone to intellectual discussion and processing new ideas. As its name suggests, individuals characterized by openness love new experiences, including visiting new places, trying new food, and hearing new ideas. Because of this, open individuals tend to be a little more politically liberal. Highly open people may take more time to reflect on their thoughts and feelings, and as such, may have greater self-insight. People low in openness tend to prefer routine. They like familiar situations, and may dislike trying new foods or visiting new places. They may feel somewhat confident in their current thoughts, ideas, and beliefs, and may be less likely to consider new ideas and different beliefs. Their lifestyles tend to foster stability and security. Non-open individuals tend to learn more politically conservative.
