YOUR Fascinating Personality Facets

Fascinating Personality Facets Exploration + Discovery + Strategy

Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. - Oscar Wilde

The first step of the Fascinating Individual Style™ framework is where you discover the personality facets of your fascinating aesthetic — the unique strengths and psychological triggers that influence your experience of beauty and vitality and inform your style expression.

How do you make aesthetic decisions? Where do you get your energy? How do you take in information? How do you organize your world? How do you respond to the world around you? What are your innate impulses, your desires, and things in your subconscious that drive you to action?

The Fascinating Facets assessment takes a look at each of the Big Five dimensions of Openness (associated with aesthetics and interest in ideas), Conscientiousness (associated with responsibility, duty, and precision), Extraversion (associated with a pronounced engagement with the external world), Agreeableness (associated with concern with cooperation and social harmony), Reactiveness (associated with processing emotion).

The Big Five domains are vast, representing a cluster of many personality characteristics. These characteristics are more specific and granular than each of the five traits. Thus, each trait can be generally defined and broken down into several facets. These facets allow for nuanced discrimination within the Big Five domains, revealing subtleties in differences otherwise undetected. Moreover, each Big Five trait represents a spectrum or continuum. Most people will fall somewhere in the range.

The personality assessment questions are a part of many open-source research projects. They may be found, along with similar question sets, elsewhere on the web. It’s, however, the highly detailed, extensive results and correlation with your aesthetic and style expression that is unparalleled among available style personality tests and quizzes.

Revealing your personality facets illuminates the approach you take in how you experience beauty and vitality. It’s at the core of style expression — What feels good and attracts without compromising your true self, values, beliefs, and comfort.


What does Openness mean? Openness, also known as Openness to Experience, refers to how you take in information. Openness encompasses Openness (creativity and aesthetic sensitivity) and Intellect (interest in abstract concepts and ideas).

High Score

If you score high on Openness, you might:
  • have a sense of curiosity about others and the world
  • be more creative or artistic
  • have a good imagination and value innovation
  • enjoy trying new things
  • see beauty in objects that others may not notice
If you score high on Intellect, you might:
  • be willing to consider new ideas and new things
  • be adventurous, experimental, and curious
  • be future-focused
  • have a rich vocabulary
  • formulate ideas quickly and clearly

A high score on Intellect can mean you enjoy solving problems with new methods and finding it easy to think about things differently.

In addition, being open to new ideas may help you adjust quickly to change.

You’re always on the hunt for new ways of creating a richer, more exciting world. This is because you have a facility for thinking in symbols and abstractions far removed from concrete experience.

As a visual idea generator, your aesthetic feels creative, playful, and individualistic in nonconforming ways.

Driven to find out what’s possible — you see the potential in an unusual accessory item, repurposing an everyday clothing item, or produce more nuanced creative works of art.

Low Score

A low Openness score might mean you are likely:
  • inartistic
  • down to earth
  • prefer to do things in a familiar way
  • not see the value in unnecessary things like art and music
A low Intellect score might mean you are likely:
  • to be conventional or traditional in your thinking
  • have narrow interests
  • avoid the unfamiliar and change
  • to not be willing to try new ideas
  • to have a lack of curiosity or thirst for knowledge

A low Openness score can mean you have no flights of fantasy and are ready to do things in familiar ways. You may lack aesthetic sensitivity and interest in the arts.

A low Intellect score can mean you consider concepts in straightforward and conventional ways.

You prefer dealing with people or things rather than ideas. Sticking to what you know, you’re more oriented to facts than fantasy. Others likely see you as being grounded and down-to-earth.

Your aesthetic looks and feels authentic and correct for who you are physically (age, colouring, size, and body style) and psychologically (conventional, traditional, loyal, and careful).

You prefer the plain, straightforward, and obvious over the complex, ambiguous, and subtle design — The familiar over the novel. More naturalized over abstract art forms and patterns. Tried and true is most comfortable for you.


What does Conscientiousness mean? Conscientiousness describes how you order your life. Conscientiousness encompasses Industriousness (engaging in sustained, goal-directed effort) and Orderliness (to schedule, organize and systematize).

High Score

If you score high on Industriousness, you are likely to:
  • be achievement oriented
  • be competent
  • be persistent
  • carry out your plans
  • finish what you start
  • get things done quickly
  • always know what you’re doing
If you score high on Orderliness, you are likely to:
  • be planful and come prepared
  • be disciplined

  • keep things in order

If you score high on Industriousness, you are goal-driven, accomplished, and self-disciplined.

You may follow a regular schedule and have a knack for keeping track of details.

You likely deliberate over options and work hard to achieve your goals.

You may tend to micromanage situations or tasks. You might also be cautious or difficult to please.

You like to be informed by well-vetted information on the colours, styles, and fabrics, patterns that’ll work best for your aesthetic.

You’re efficient and spot-on because of careful contemplation of long-range goals and organizing and planning routes to these goals.

Whether planning a new wardrobe, refreshing a personal brand style, designing a new direction for your creative works, or bringing some organization to your creative workspace, you persist toward your goals.

  • prefer things spontaneous, flexible, and less structured
  • be low on attention to detail
  • be less organized
  • leave your belongings around
  • not be bothered by disorder or messiness
  • dislike routine

A low Industriousness score can mean you’re happiest leaving options open. You may be somewhat spontaneous and make snap decisions.

Tending to procrastinate or show poor follow-through, you may fail to complete tasks — even tasks you want very much to complete, such as finding the perfect pair of shoes to complete an outfit.

A low Orderliness score can mean you might consider yourself a perceptive individual who prefers an environment without structure. Rather than working to a deadline, you may prefer doing things at your own pace. This might make you appear unreliable, disorganized, and scattered to others.

You usually prefer to leave your options open as long as possible. Then eschewing any systemized approach to style rules, you create your own set of unique rules based on your aesthetic.

Consider that a poorly put-together outfit may result from a messy closet. Likewise, a poorly put-together brand style may result from a lack of attention to detail.

If you score high on Assertiveness, you understand how to tap into your aesthetic and use your style purposefully to influence and achieve your desired outcomes.

An active individual with a fast-paced, busy life, you move about quickly, energetically, and vigorously and are involved in many activities.

Therefore, it would be best if you had a wardrobe that could keep up and support you in all that you do.

Be sure to capture all of the assertiveness and enthusiasm in your personal brand style.

You’re fuss-free and don’t require too much time, attention, or effort for a sense of style that suits you entirely.

In some situations, you might be a little too trusting or willing to compromise. Try to balance your knack for pleasing others with self-advocacy.

If you score high in Politeness, you may be modest and straightforward, “What you see is what you get.”

Your aesthetic is charming and who you will be with and what will help you connect with others drives your most stylish choices.

A low Politeness score may mean you lack awareness of the impact of your visual impression on others, how to work with it, and adapt it to suit the occasion and audience.

You may see dress codes as unnecessary or stupid. You question the logic of any longstanding norms or precepts — if there are few or no consequences, you bend them to fit your aesthetic.

Close friends have given up on saying anything about what you wear, which is okay with you.

You’ve worked hard on your website SEO (search engine optimization). But you’re scratching your head on why visitors don’t stay, and the bounce rate is high.

You like it, but you’re not sure why your creative works are not hitting the mark with your target audience.


What does reactiveness* mean? Reactiveness refers to emotional regulation of impulsivity, anxiety, depression, self-consciousness, or vulnerability.

Reactiveness encompasses Tempestuousness (tendency to become irritable and upset when things go sideways) and Withdrawal (avoidance in the face of uncertainty).

If you score high in Tempestuousness, others may describe you as high-strung, over-reacting – emotionally, you experience extreme highs and extreme lows.

You often find sales irresistible, and some of your biggest style missteps have occurred because you bargain buy – prioritizing cost over other factors such as quality, colour, fabric, and fit.

You might easily get irritated or frustrated with yourself, especially if you make a mistake.

If you score high in Withdrawal, you may blame yourself when things go wrong.

Chances are, you’re also prone to worrying or being anxious about making a wrong decision on your style choices. But you’re likely also more reflective than others, which helps you examine and understand your feelings.

You have difficulty understanding the ‘why’ behind the ‘how’ of your aesthetic, so you find yourself making style mistakes.

You often struggle to put together the right look appropriate for a particular occasion. You’re frustrated not being able to settle on a personal brand identity that feels like you.

Low Score

If you score low in Tempestuousness, you are likely to:

  • have resilience
  • be composed and patient
  • keep calm in stressful situations
  • rarely get irritated or annoyed
If you score low in Withdrawal, you are likely to:
  • have a pretty stable mood
  • feel comfortable with yourself

To avoid style mistakes, you calmly reflect on your understanding of the ‘why’ behind the ‘how’ of your aesthetic.

You confidently put together the appropriate look for the occasion. You don’t get flustered or worry about choosing a wall colour for your bedroom.

Faced with a personal rebrand, you’re comfortable and worry-free making a date for a photoshoot to update pics for your social media feeds.

*Reactiveness is often seen elsewhere as a measure of Emotional Stability or Neuroticism.
