A Study of the Relationship Between Self and Desired Mate Personality Testing Regarding the Big-Five Inventory (BFI) Factor of Personality Test Sky Sommerfeld Hunter College, The City University of New York Abstract There are numerous variations in the ways of which people display personality traits. Self-reported personality testing not only allots for analysis of how an individual views themselves, but also how they would like their idealized partners personality to appear. Using an assimilated form of the Big-five inventory of personality tests (BFI) assisted in the analysis of five commonly known personalities and their connection to self as well as mate reporting. These five personalities of agreeableness, conscientiousness, openness, extraversion, and finally neuroticism were all analyzed to see whether there was a correlation between self-reports and desired mate reports.

Each personality type is defined by belonging to a specific category, and then in terms of socialisation: how a person adapts to the world in which they live (Feist, Feist & Roberts, 2013).

The five stages are pre-encounter, encounter, immersion/emersion, internalization, and internalization-commitment (Tatum, 2003). Tatum’s explanation of these five stages was very clear and effective in understanding racial identity development. The first stage, called pre-encounter, is when the Black child absorbs many of the beliefs of the dominant White culture, including stereotypes, distortions, and the idea that it is better to be White (Tatum, 2003).
