RE: Big Five Personality Test, for both Host and Tulpa

Open-Mindedness
Ember: You enjoy having novel experiences and seeing things in new ways. (Your percentile: 94)
Vesper: The other person enjoys having novel experiences and seeing things in new ways. (Their percentile: 92)

I was expecting to score much higher on this than Ember, since I'm always the one pushing her to try new things. Lately, if she doesn't want to and will let me, I'll front and do them myself.
 
Conscientiousness
Ember: You tend to do things somewhat haphazardly. (Your percentile: 28)
Vesper: The other person is very well-organized, and can be relied upon. (Their percentile: 96)

And the person who cares gets stuck with tidying up.
 
Extraversion
Ember: You probably enjoy spending quiet time alone. (Your percentile: 19)
Vesper: The other person is relatively social and enjoy the company of others. (Their percentile: 77)

I love being around people, but it's hard knowing what to say to them when my experience of life, first in fiction and then disembodied, is so different from theirs. Watching Ember hang out with her friends is almost enough for me, but not quite.
 
Agreeableness
Ember: You find it easy to express irritation with others. (Your percentile: 29)
Vesper: The other person is good-natured, courteous, and supportive. (Their percentile: 97)

I felt during the test like Ember was a little hard on herself for these questions. But then there have been dozens of times I've been the one trying to persuade her to be more patient and polite, so maybe not.
 
Negative Emotionality
Ember: You are a generally anxious person and tend to worry about things. (Your percentile: 82)
Vesper: The other person probably remains calm, even in tense situations. (Their percentile: 8)

At least Ember comes by it honestly. Her mother is a much much worse worrier.

Except for Ember's openness, our test results seem very plausible, both individually and comparatively. In spite of having not been created as a companion, my differences from my host seem to be the most common for tulpas -- more conscientious, extraverted, and agreeable, less neurotic.

I would have thought tulpas would thrive on new experiences, since the whole world is new to us, but perhaps not. Actually, tulpamancy itself seems sufficiently exotic in concept to attract mainly people with high openness, but perhaps not.

Edit:
Vesper: Ember and I discussed her Openness score in greater detail and I have to confess I fell victim to a cognitive bias (which she initially went along with), only noticing the times when I was wanting to do something and she wasn't. She actually tries new things very often, and feels strongly enough about them to do them alone, since her friends usually aren't interested.

Another thing for everyone to keep in mind about this test is the five scales are all complex composites of statistically correlated personality traits. The trait that a particular scale is named after may not be the one most strongly expressed in a particular person. The correlations are strong, not complete.

Ember: I love data, but Vesper usually discourages me from endless numerical analysis of things that don't matter. This is psychology, so she was curious too. The results here are by no means a representative sample of the tulpamancy community, but still intriguing:

Average - 17 Hosts:
Openness: 65
Conscientiousness: 27
Extraversion: 39
Agreeableness: 52
Neuroticism: 51

Average - 20 Tulpas:
Openness: 52
Conscientiousness: 55
Extraversion: 57
Agreeableness: 59
Neuroticism: 26

So far, hosts tend to be somewhat more curious, open, spontaneous, and reserved than the general population, but less disciplined and orderly.

Tulpas, on the other hand, tend to be a lot like anyone else, except more mellow and relaxed.


Edit 2:

Ember: We asked Iris to take the test as well. While discussing the results, Vesper decided to take the test again, as she's lived a lot the past few weeks. Here are the collated results:

Open-Mindedness
Ember: You enjoy having novel experiences and seeing things in new ways. (Percentile: 94)
Vesper: You enjoy having novel experiences and seeing things in new ways. (Old: 92, New: 90)
Iris: You prefer traditional and familiar experiences. (Percentile: 3)

If one of us asks Iris to try something, she'll do it, and she's usually enjoyed it so far, but she has a profound lack of interest in seeking out new things for herself.
 
Conscientiousness
Ember: You tend to do things somewhat haphazardly. (Percentile: 28)
Vesper: You are very well-organized, and can be relied upon. (Old: 96, New: 98)
Iris: You are very well-organized, and can be relied upon. (Percentile: 98)

I'm clearly going to have to let my headmates take charge of the organization of my office.

Extraversion
Ember: You probably enjoy spending quiet time alone. (Percentile: 19)
Vesper: You are relatively social and enjoy the company of others. (Old: 77, New: 90)
Iris: You probably enjoy spending quiet time alone. (Percentile: 5)

Agreeableness
Ember: You find it easy to express irritation with others. (Percentile: 29)
Vesper: You are good-natured, courteous, and supportive. (Old: 97, New: 93)
Iris: You tend to consider the feelings of others. (Percentile: 69)

Iris cares about Vesper and I a lot more than she cares about anyone else.

Negative Emotionality
Ember: You are a generally anxious person and tend to worry about things. (Percentile: 82)
Vesper: You aren't particularly nervous, nor calm. (Old: 8, New: 44)
Iris: You probably remain calm, even in tense situations. (Percentile: 8)

Between her lack of curiosity, lack of interest in people, and preternatural calmness, it's no wonder it took me three years to appreciate just how completely I soulbonded Iris. Vesper's arrival was dramatic and undeniable, so I assumed that was normal.

Vesper: Iris seems to have thoroughly displaced me as the comfortingly calm system member. I've started worrying a lot more this past month, because I care a lot more. I have interests and passions relating to this world now in a way I never used to have, which allows more opportunities for me to be disappointed. The whole soulbond experience has been making me irritated, frustrated, and unhappy far too often. But I've got Iris, and I've got Ember and her wife, so I'm dealing.

Ember - Host   |   Vesper - Soulbond (since ~12 May 2017)   |   Iris - Soulbond (since ~5 December 2015)
