What is the utility of the trait Openness on the Big-5 model?

According to Dr. Jordan Peterson if you think about ‘preference to fiction’, which is a part of the trait openness to novelty, the utility in being skilled in fiction is that it allows you to experience an excess of simulated worlds. It also enables one to embody the consequences in abstraction without having the trouble of going through that for yourself.
