I believe that I am fairly consistent across the 16 traits as proposed by Cattell. In my own life I find these qualities to be fairly static, some are modified as time goes on, or as the situation requires but I feel that somewhere around seventy five percent of the time I behave in accordance with my self-assessment of this inventory. My openness to experience is quite high and I generally perform better/am more receptive to new situations than repeated or sustained ones. This has remained true across jobs, travel, school, and social situations; furthermore it has been that way since I can recall. Some traits do vary more so than others however, for example social boldness. Generally I am quite socially bold, but in situations where I am not at ease with the company, or subject matter, or it is not appropriate to do so, that boldness is turned down significantly. Overall, I'd say I find myself consistent across Cattell's model, and I think my self-report is very predictive of my behaviour, however there is some variation with respect to these traits over time and as social norms and situations allow.
