I am working with psychology, more precisely, the Big Five personality traits. I have a test which measures 5 variables, that is believed to describe personality traits of human beings. The variables are; openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness & neuroticism. I will refer to them as
A test is carried out to measure the variables. It can yield scores from
E = 7.0 would mean that the person has the maximum value of extraversion, suggesting a very social person.
Lets say both Eve and Adam makes the test, and their final scores are:
[4.0, 2.4, 5.2, 5.1, 6.9]
[1.1, 2.2, 4.2, 5.6, 6.1]
What would be a good way to measure their similarity?
The ordering of the letters does not matter, as long as they both use the same order, e.g instead of
N it could be
C. There might be correlation between the variables, e.g openness
O might have a positive correlation with extroversion
