FINDINGS: Respondent 1

6 Jun

Based from the respondent’s Facebook statuses, I have made an assumption that this respondent falls into the Openness to Experience category. To really prove this, here are the results of the survey done on both the respondent and her friend:

**Note: SDA = Strongly Disagree, DA = Disagree, NAD = Neither Agree nor Disagree, A = Agree, SA = Strongly Agree**

No.

According to the results, it is no doubt that Respondent 1’s rate is moderately high on the “Big Five” scale. She is curious, intelligent, and imaginative. She also appreciates diverse views, ideas, and experiences. In short, I can strongly say that Respondent 1 belongs to the first personality domain which is Openness to Experience.

This status itself clearly shows the respondent’s intelligence about making a change. She is very open in pointing out her view and I believe that this is something we can all agree on.

“Putting aside the bad stuff lately, something really good happened to me today! I FOUND MY DIPLOMA & BACHELOR MATRIC CARDS. WITH THE POUCH! It was under the car seat, where I wouldn’t have found it if my makeup didn’t happen to fall right next to it 8D To think that today I was going to give up and pay RM20 to apply for a new one…”

This status proves not only the respondent’s readiness to buy a new matrix card and forget the old one, but also her rational and balanced way of thinking to let go of the past and move on.

“So, here’s the thing. Just because I don’t whine about it every minute on FB, doesn’t mean that I am not indeed suffering. But here it is, for those of you who say ”huhh I just saw her on FB, she seems fine”, here’s what’s really going on: For almost a week now, I have been unable to sleep because my hard coughing wakes me up and rushes me to the bathroom so I can throw up. My phlegm tries to choke me whenever I try lying down. My throat is so sore, raw and painful because of the endless coughing, therefore I have also lost my voice. I can still talk now, but it hurts every moment. The fact that I got my period a few days ago does NOT help my situation as I now spend LITERALLY hours in the bathroom and rolling around on the floor because my stomach hurts, thus my phlegm once again tries to choke me. Because of all this put together, I’m also experiencing headaches, extra sensitivity to smell and bad dizziness, which is why I can’t drive lately. Need I remind you that I suffer from really bad cases of PMS? No, trust me. You don’t want me to remind you. I know I’m missing class and not exactly contributing my work nowadays, but trust me, it’s not like I’m doing this on purpose. Anyway, doctor says my throat is severely swollen and has given me two days MC. Let’s just hope everything gets much better soon, cos I personally can’t stand it anymore.”

Based from this status, I can say that the respondent is very calm even though she herself is facing some difficult times. The way she explains about her conditions in her Facebook page shows her sensible self in handling those whispers of hate she gets from her fellow classmates regarding her absence in class.

This status proves the respondent’s intelligence of being one of the high scorers. While the phrase “could things finally be turning around?” indicates her enjoyment of getting an A in her Advanced Japanese test.
