About the Test

Q: How long will the test take me to complete?
A: The questionnaire will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. There is no time limit. Take the test at your own pace.
Q: What if I can’t complete the questionnaire in one sitting?
A: Your answers are saved between sessions. Just click the invitation link to resume the test.
Q: What is the test like?
A: The test consists of questions that you will answer on how true they are about you on a five point scale where 1=Strongly Disagree, 3=Neutral and 5=Strongly Agree. The purpose is to answer based on who you really are not who you want to be. Answer honestly. Your spontaneous answer is usually the most accurate.

The Science

Q: What is the Five Factor Model?
A: The big five personality traits are the best accepted and most commonly used model of personality in academic psychology. While there seem to be unlimited personality variables, five stand out for explaining a person’s answers to questions about their personality.
Q: What are the Five Factors?
A: : Extroversion, neuroticism, agreeableness, conscientiousness and openness to experience.
Q. Is this personality test scientific?
A. Yes. This test has been researched extensively to ensure it is valid and reliable. It is based on psychological research into the core of personality and refined over many years of application and research by our data scientists. We continue to grow our anonymous data samples in order to validate our research and show you how you compare to the other people in our international database of results for each of the Big Five personality traits.

The Test

Q: Why am I being asked to provide the name and email of a person who will be my validator?
A: To validate the study, we need someone that knows you and is familiar with your personality to cross reference your answers.

Q: Will my validator see my answers?
A: No, they will not see your answers. Validators are provided with a completely different set of questions from the test taker.

Q: Can I see how my validator answers the questions about me?
A: No, you will not see their answers.

Q: Should I tell my validator that I am asking them to help me to better understand my personality?
A: Yes, it is often helpful if you ask them before you take the test, so they know to watch for their invitation from us. And they know they are helping you better understand your personality

Q: Can my validator take their own HUCAMA Big 5 Test and understand they own personality?
A: Yes! After they complete the validation for you, they will be prompted to input their email address if they would like to participate in this study and get their own copy of the HUCAMA Big 5 Personality Report

The Report

Q: When will I receive my HUCAMA Big 5 Personality Report?
A: You will receive your HUCAMA Big 5 Report once your validator has validated your test.

Q: What should I expect in my HUCAMA Big 5 Personality Report?
A: The report will explain how to interpret your test results against the Five Factors of Personality

  • Openness – How open a person is to new ideas and experiences
  • Conscientiousness – How goal-directed, persistent, and organized a person is
