OCEAN Profile

OCEAN Occupational Personality Assessment - Research proven, internationally recognised

The OCEAN is based on the research proven, internationally recognised Big Five Theory of Personality. This model of personality examines a person's style and attitudes on 5, easily interpreted dimensions. Importantly, these dimensions aren't types and avoid 'labeling' individuals. This makes the OCEAN ideal for staff selection. The dimensions are stable over a 45-year period beginning in young adulthood (Soldz & Vaillant, 1999). International customers will be interested in the fact that these personality dimensions are considered universal, having been replicated in languages as diverse as German and Chinese (McCrae & Costa, 1997).

Openess Scale

Open vs Closed Mindedness:

The Openness dimension contrasts the 'open' person who is generally more willing to entertain novel ideas and unconventional values, with that the 'closed' person who tends to be conventional in behaviour and conservative in outlook.

Conscientiousness Scale Conscientious vs Unreliable:

The major aspects of the Conscientiousness factor include accomplishment, scrupulousness, and responsibility. People who score high on this trait are described as well-organised, planful, careful, and thorough. Individuals who score low tend to be disorganised, careless, inefficient, and undependable.

Extraversion Scale Extravert vs Intravert:

People who score high on this trait are described as talkative, sociable, having high energy, and assertive. Individuals who score low on this trait are described as quiet, solitary, having low energy, shy, and reserved.

Agreeableness Scale

Agreeable vs Inflexible:

Agreeableness is a dimension best perceived as interpersonal in its manifestation, containing aspects of sympathy, compassion, and generosity. People who score high are described as warm-hearted, kind, trusting, and compassionate. People who score low are described as antagonistic, unkind, suspicious, and unsympathetic.

Stress Propensity Scale

Stress Prone vs Composed:

People who score high on this trait are described as emotional, anxious, highly-strung, self-pitying, and self-conscious. Individuals who score low are described as calm, even-tempered, self-satisfied, and comfortable with themselves.
