Contemporary thought about personality is no longer primarily focused on Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. To find the roots of NEO Big Five personality assessment, you need to reach back some two millennia and start with a student of Aristotle named Theophrastus.

So begins this fascinating talk by Dr. Jason Rentfrow, who presents results from the BBC Big Personality Test, which is based on the ‘Big Five’ personality traits, and reveals associations between personality and important life domains.

Dr Jason Rentfrow is a Lecturer in Social and Developmental Psychology at the University of Cambridge with research interests in psychological characteristics and person-environment interactions.
