An individual 's inclination to accept, explore, and ponder on original and fresh ideas and experiences are related to openness in experience (McCrae & Costa, 1987). Other than that, people who have a high degree of openness to experience are likely to be less opinionated in their ideas, more favorable in considering various opinion, more manageable to all kinds of situations and less prone to oppose conflicts than people who have a low degree of openness to experience (Costa & McCrae, 1992; LePine, 2003; McCrae, 1987).

Another test, The Big Five Inventory (BFI), is more inclined towards different personality traits including openness, conscientiousness, agreeableness, extraversion, and emotion stability. It explains that there is a gradient leading from one type of personality to the other.
Seigel (1999) conducted a study to examine the impact of gender, racial-ethnic group, perceived pubertal timing and adolescent mental health on body image. 877 teens were taken as a sample from the age group 13-18 years with diverse social and demographic characteristics.
