Everyone likes a nice person, and most of us try to be good in our own lives. Why is it, then, that there are so few people in the world who are good all the time? As hard as may try, there are always those rotten days and moments of weakness where it just feels better to be bad.
All of us lose things. Sometimes we don't even realize they're lost. Remember the feeling of desperation as you checked your pockets for the fifth time just to make sure you didn't miss it? Lost objects have a way of staying lost, only to turn up months after you've given up looking and forgotten all about them. Finding things lost by other people works the same way. You don't usually look for lost purses or wallets on purpose. It happens usually doing something else.

The big five personality traits are the best accepted and most commonly used model of personality in academic psychology. The big five come from the statistical study of responses to personality items. Using a technique called factor analysis researchers can look at the responses of people to hundreds of personality items and ask the question "what is the best was to summarize an individual?". This has been done with many samples from all over the world and the general result is that, while there seem to be unlimited personality variables, five stand out from the pack in terms of explaining a lot of a persons answers to questions about their personality: extraversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, conscientiousness and openness to experience. There are many different measures of the big five personality traits. This test uses the Big-Five Factor Markers from the International Personality Item Pool, developed by Goldberg (1992).
