Trying to analyze my behaviour and personality traits as objectively as possible, I believe that to a certain extent I am consistent across Cattell's 16 traits. Depending on the environment and situation I am in, my personality traits are sometimes modified as required. For example, my openness to experience is quite high when I am first introduced to a new set of people (for example: them suggesting we go out and eat at a different ethnic cuisine that I did not try before). In this context (trying to socialize and get food with people I am not so close with), I am much more likely to be open to new experiences. However, when it comes to me hanging out with close friends, I usually am low on openness to experience because I have more of a say in choosing where to eat (someplace I have been to before and am accustomed too).
