Using your problem solving and self and social awareness skills and what you have learned about personality traits and emotions, answer the questions below to help Gloria calm her anxiety and find a solution to her problem.

For each question, you should write a paragraph-length response (5–7 sentences) to receive credit for this assignment. You may use your Soomo webtext as a resource. 

Question 1: From Chapter 3 in the webtext, what are the Big 5 personality traits? (Hint: Page 3.12 helps you learn about the Big 5 traits.)

Question 2: Use one of the Big 5 personality traits to describe Gloria’s personality.

Question 3: Chapter 6 in the webtext focused on emotions. Using what you learned, give advice to Gloria on how she can identify and regulate her own emotions so that she can stick with this project and be successful. (Hint: Pages 6.4 and 6.11 have resources to help with this question.)

Question 4: If you were in this situation, how confident are you that you could successfully resolve a workplace conflict like the one that Gloria faced? What past experiences or knowledge influence your answer?
