Atelier no 12 : Quelles approches pour faciliter le développement des personnes dans les organisations d'éducation et de formation ?
|Titre||Comparative approach towards personality traits|
|Background: A question about the applicability of new and contemporary personality inventories, as the NEO-PI-R, bas been highlighted while researching the field of personality.
Ai.m.;. a comparative approach bas been conducted among the three personality inventories 16PF, EPQ and NEO-PI-R.
Method: 206 students from different faculties from the "St. Cyril and Methodius" University, completed the battery consisted of the 3 personality inventories (NEO-PI-R, 16 PF and EPQ). The raw results were transformed as s-ten scores and after that factorial analysis was performed. Factorial analysis was considered as the most appropriate and was processed by using the programme package Statistics 4. ln line with this multifactor analysis, Method of Main Components, Neortogonal and Ortogonal and Oblique rotation were used as complementary. The arithmetical average-mean and standard deviation were calculated for each inventory respectively.
We concluded that the se three inventories are independent, however in view of the fact that 6 factors were extracted, we suggest further investigations to the six-factor model of personality.
The results that were obtained by using the inventories and later processed with the methods and analysis given above, have shawn that of the 14 variables that were included, 6 factors were extracted. The factors can not be seen as pure variables, consequently there is not a possibility to define personality traits and subsequently there isn't correlation among the factors themselves. The final conclusion can be seen in a similar manner, as an answer to the question that there is independence of the personality inventories NEO-PI-R, 16 PF and EPQ.
Conclusion: By and large these results are in collision with the expectations, but they are fitting in most of the theoretical concepts. Those are mostly regarding the Five- factor model of personality.
