Present study aimed at finding relationship among Big Five personality Traits (extroversion, introversion, conscientiousness, agreeableness
and neuroticism) and self-esteem level of university students.
Items are introduced with the stem "I see myself as someone who..." and the endings change in order to assess the distinct personality traits: neuroticism (e.g., "worries a lot"), extraversion (e.g., "is talkative"), openness (e.g., "has an active imagination"), agreeableness
(e.g., "is generally trusting") and conscientiousness (e.g., "does a thorough job").
Neuroticism and agreeableness
are the strongest and most consistent personality predictors of relationship outcomesincluding relationship dissatisfaction, conflict, abuseand ultimately dissolution (Karney&Brabury, 1995).
Because agreeable people are trustworthy according to personality theory (Abrams et al., 2003), we may conclude that agreeableness
will be positively correlated to knowledge sharing behavior.
It contains five basic personality traits as broad level: extraversion, neuroticism, openness to experiences, agreeableness
, and conscientiousness.
The questionnaire consists of 44 items corresponding to the 5 personality factors of the Big Five model: extraversion, neuroticism, openness, consciousness, and agreeableness
. The answers were offered by subjects on a Likert-like scale with 5 steps, where 1 means strong disagreement and 5 means strong agreement.
Summarizing this research, Hurtz and Donovan (2000) meta-analyzed 23 independent studies and observed the following fully-corrected estimates for the relationship between the five-factor model of personality (Hogan, 1991; McCrae and Costa, 1997) and OCBI: openness ([rho] = .05), extraversion ([rho] = .11), emotional stability ([rho] = .17), conscientiousness ([rho] = .18), and agreeableness
([rho] = .20).
From the study through multiple regression analyses it is observed that among the predictors, openness to experience was significant positive predictor of parental support; agreeableness
was significant positive predictor of satisfaction, and openness to experience and extraversion were significant positive predictors of communication.
: Traits related with agreeableness
are being flexible, trusting, cooperative, forgiving, and tolerant (7).
And so, neuroticism correlated with surface acting, and agreeableness
and extraversion with deep acting [41,50,51].
reflects the quality of interpersonal relationships; while extraversion relates to the quantity and intensity of relationships (DeNeve and Cooper 1998).
values were found to be generally low and to show some negative tendency, all of them being lower than 0.20.
Neuroticism is one of the "big five" personality traits recognised by psychologists, along with openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, and agreeableness
. It is characterised by a long list of negative emotions, including anxiety, fear, worry, envy, frustration, jealousy and loneliness.
personality traits were significantly lower in the moderate-crimes group compared to the no-crimes group.
In this theory of personality there are five trait dimensions; Openness, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness
