I was listening to a podcast about personality tests and I heard someone mention a test that phonetically sounded like it was called "Max C." Looking this up yields no answers. I've also tried a few similar-sounding words, but no dice. Does anyone know of which test this is and what its actual name is?

Could be "[maximum] Conscientiousness," one of the core traits in the Big Five [personality index]. The Big Five traits are the best-known personality models in modern academic psychology, and frequently referred to by their initials (O C E A N).


  • Thanks, maybe this person was referring to the Big Five test, although I'm not 100% sure. – kewardicle Sep 28 at 14:28
