My colleague Marie Wallace has written a great article distilling her own profile infographic and I have copied the following list from her blog:

  • Hedonism: seeking pleasure and sensuous gratification for oneself.
  • Conservation: emphasizing self-restriction, order and resistance to change.
  • Self-transcend: showing concern for the welfare and interests of others.
  • Open-to-change: emphasizing independent action, thought, feeling, and readiness for new experience.
  • Self-Enhance: seeking personal success for oneself.
  • Excitement: getting out there and living life, upbeat emotions, and having fun.
  • Harmony: appreciating other people, their viewpoints and their feelings.
  • Ideal: a desire for perfection and a sense of community.
  • Curiosity: a desire to discover, find out and grow.
  • Closeness: being connected to family and setting up home.
  • Self-expression: discovering and asserting one’s own identity.
  • Openness: the extent to which a person is open to experience a variety of activities.
  • Neuroticism: the extent to which a person’s emotion is sensitive to the environment.
  • Conscientiousness: a tendency that a person acts in an organized or spontaneous way.
