Assignment 1: Discussion Question

Tisha recently completed a personality inventory as part of her executive training program. She was supposed to receive a printout of her results but got only the first page of the packet. This page indicated that she scored moderately high in Openness to Experience as well as Agreeableness, very high in Conscientiousness and Extraversion, and low in Neuroticism. However, the page offered no analysis of these findings because the analysis was part of the missing pages.

She has contacted HR to obtain the remaining pages of her feedback because she is interested in knowing what the results mean.

Based on the Big Five model of personality, explain the findings to Tisha. Include the explanations of each dimension of personality, and provide examples of each. Be sure to discuss research findings regarding personality measures and job performance.

Detail how the predictors of performance could be used to predict Tisha's success as a manager. Do you think Tisha’s personality test suggests that she will be a successful manager? Why or why not?

The Big Five are five personality traits that many I/O psychologists examine to determine a candidate’s fit to specific jobs.  The Big Five are:

Extraversionimplies an energetic approach to the social and material world and includes traits such as sociability, activity, assertiveness, and positive emotionality.

Agreeableness contrasts a prosocial and communal orientation toward others with antagonism and includes traits such as altruism, tender-mindedness, trust, and modesty.

Conscientiousness describes socially prescribed impulse control that facilitates task and goal-directed behavior, such as thinking before acting, delaying gratification, following norms and rules, and planning, organizing, and prioritizing tasks.

Neuroticism contrasts emotional stability and even-temperedness with negative emotionality, such as feeling anxious, nervous, sad, and tense.

Openness to experience (versus closed-mindedness) describes the breadth, depth, originality, and complexity of an individual’s mental and experiential life.
