The Agreeableness factor is comprised of two aspects: Compassion and Politeness. Empathy seems to be the feature which ties them both together. In other words, it seems that the ability to recognize others' emotions contributes to both compassionate and polite behaviors. Agreeableness also reflects individual differences in concern with cooperation and social harmony. While agreeable people are typically more popular than those low on agreeableness, it is not popularity that motivates them so much as the desire to avoid (or reduce) conflict in their immediate environment. While this quality has several obvious benefits, agreeableness is not necessarily useful in situations that are highly stressful or that frequently involve "tough" decisions. As a result, people who feel less need to be agreeable often make excellent scientists, critics, or soldiers.

Your score on the Agreeableness scale indicates that you are relatively agreeable. You probably have an interest in others' needs and well-being, and you share in both their joys and their challenges. It may be that your compassion is limited to some individuals (perhaps friends and family) without extending to acquaintances or strangers. You are most likely pleasant, sympathetic, and cooperative. You may like doing things for others, especially when they are in need, sometimes even if this puts their needs ahead of your own. It's also likely you are less easily annoyed by others. You may sometimes lose your temper or make insulting judgments about the people with whom you interact, but for the most part you probably avoid judging or criticizing those around you. You can probably receive criticism without holding a grudge. Highly agreeable individuals value getting along with others. They are therefore considerate, friendly, generous, helpful, and willing to compromise their interests for the sake of others. Agreeable people also tend to have an optimistic view of human nature. They believe people are basically honest, decent, and trustworthy.
