Q. I have an assignment to write about personality traits that make an individual suitable for a particular job.

Answer

You might want to look at this website: http://www.personalitytest.net/index.html , which contains short and long versions of a questionnaire based on the Five-Factor Personality Inventory by Costa and McCrae. You may also want to look at Open Psychometrics. You will find several different personality tests here that you may use for free.
