Agreeableness is one of the Big Five personality traits that?indicates how agreeable a person is.
A person who scores high on the agreeable scale tends to have a concern for social harmony. Therefore, they tend to be friendly, compassionate, generous, kind and trusting. At the other end of the scale, individuals who score low on agreeableness tend to place self-interest above getting along with others. They are generally unconcerned with the well-being of others and as a result can appear challenging, argumentative and competitive.
Agreeableness is measured on the facets of: Trust, morality, altruism, cooperation, modesty and sympathy.
As agreeable individuals tend to have a regard for others and the desire to cooperate, they tend to prefer careers that involve working collaboratively with others. Positions that agreeable individuals will strive in include managerial positions, social work or non-profit/charity work.
Highly agreeable individuals tend to dislike conflict and as a result will struggle in careers the require debating, disagreeing or pressurising other people.
