In the Big Five Personality model there are five key dimensions of personality. These are Openness, Conscientiousness, Extroversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism.

Openness measures your willingness to participate in new experiences or have new ideas. Conscientiousness determines your ability to focus on a goal and delay gratification. Extroversion establishes your natural sociability. Agreeableness measures your cooperation and levels of trust, and Neuroticism determines your levels of emotional instability.
