Last but not least, the final personality domain of the Big Five that is Neuroticism. Based from all her Facebook statuses as stated, I have made a firm assumption that Respondent 5 falls under Neuroticism. Results of the survey are as below:

**Note: SDA = Strongly Disagree, DA = Disagree, NAD = Neither Agree nor Disagree, A = Agree, SA = Strongly Agree**
No.

From both results, I can say that the respondent is easily threatened and tensed. Besides, she is often described as anxious, nervous, excitable, and fearful.  Definitely fragile, thus my assumption is right.

Based from their answers, it is proven that the respondent has the personality domain “Extroversion”. Their results indicate that this respondent has more extraverted traits than introverted traits. Although he admits that he is not talkative, but he is actually can be very expressive and dominant as he likes to draw inspiration from social situations.
