People classified as high in Conscientiousness tend to act more dutiful, systematical, highly analytical, and strategical. Like described by Jordan B Peterson, competent and able to make relatively accurate plans to life goals, mainly in the academic field. Conscientiousness can also be divided into two other categories, which are Industriousness and Orderliness, with Industriousness being connected to hardship, diligence and focus; and Orderliness which relates to the adherence to rules and structure and which is more common to conservative thinking.
According to Kendra Cherry, conscientious people are highly premeditative, composed, achievement-driven, and organized. They like fulfilling their schedule and give preference to essential tasks. This trait is also described by Christopher J. Soto as an accurate predictors of attainment and health-related outcomes. They are better students and employees; and have a higher life expectancy, resultant from being more careful when it comes to developing healthy habits, Soto adds.
This trait has been intimately associated to success in integrity test (Ones, Viswesvaran, & Schmidt, 1993, 1995), employee quality survey (Michigan Department of Education, 1989) and studies about the positive influence on spouse’s will to succeed on their career (Solomon & Jackson, 2014). They are also characterized by David C. Funder as remorseful in case of not achieving (Fayard, Roberts, Robins, & Watson, 2012) and even more if unemployed (Boyce, Wood, & Brown, 2010); are usually not popular (van der Linden, Scholte, Cillessen, te Nijenhuis, & Segers, 2010) and not creative (Robert & Cheung, 2010).
Other characteristics of Conscientiousness reported by Robert R. McCrae and Paul T. Costa Jr. were rationality, knowledge, tendency to perceive themselves as efficient, self-conscious, and highly attached to moral standards.
