A Study on Association of Personality Traits with Graduation Stream and Specialization Choice of Management Students
This study was designed study to determine whether there is an association between personality traits and graduation stream of MBA students. This study also tested the association of personality traits with chosen specialization. The big five personality traits are measured for a sample of 706 management students through a survey developed from the International Personality Item Pool (IPIP). The chi-square results indicated association of extraversion, conscientiousness, agreeableness and openness with personality traits. Majority of high scorers came from engineering background whereas majority of low scorers came from commerce background. Maximum trait differences were observed in engineering students. Specialization choice was found to be independent of personality.
