Below is a good quote that got me thinking about CT and the general public. Folks stumbling across CT seem to pick it up fine for the most part, but there's been several times where I've hit a brick wall trying to explain and garner any interest from others.
"This all leads to an important question: should personality scientists take steps to make their measures more appealing to the general public? The answer is apparently "no" as little action has been taken to date. That's probably as it should be. The most simple step would be to "typologize" more valid and reliable personality scales. This already happens to some extent, as a cognitive shortcut, but it shouldn't be encouraged. That said, it would be useful to determine the extent to which some types or profiles of personality traits occur more frequently than would be expected at random. These occurences [sic] might suggest some overlap between the traits or maybe even a common, underlying mechanism. There are several promising lines of research working in this direction already."
