 The 34 Big Five competencies 

The Bridge Personality has been the most widely used Big Five personality test in many countries around the world for 15 years. Based on the Big Five theory, this test is recognized as the most effective for personnel selection and recruitment. According to the Big Five theory, personality consists of five fundamental traits, known as the Big Five: Openness to Experience, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Emotional Stability.

With The Bridge Personality, you gain a clear understanding of an employee's or applicant's Big Five personality traits. Participants spend about 45 minutes on the test. You can order this Big Five personality test on a per-candidate basis or manage it yourself through an assessment account on the Bridge Assessment Platform.

The Big Five personality theory is the most widely used personality theory in research and personality tests. Years of worldwide psychological research has shown that you can describe someone's personality by means of five dimensions, the so-called Big Five. These dimensions are openness to experience, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and emotional stability. In The Bridge Personality, a Big Five personality test, these dimensions have been adjusted into four categories: Directing, Output, Attitude and Inspiration. Each of these categories contains three subcategories. These subcategories are divided into the 34 competencies of The Bridge Personality. The scores for these 34 competencies are shown in The Bridge Personality Big Five report.
