Our personality is the combination of various unique traits and the way we react to the world around us is influenced by the interaction of each trait. It thus plays a big role in determining various aspects of our behavioural traits. This paper examined whether big V personality traits act as a co-relate and predictors of job anxiety. Anxiety involves stressful thoughts and feelings associated with physical symptoms. Job anxiety would thus involve being prone to anxiety in job related situations, which is a hazard for promoting a stable and optimistic environment in the workplace. A total of 97 IT & BPO employees were purposefully selected between the ages of 21-26 years. To interpret the results, descriptive statistics were computed followed by correlation and multiple regression analysis (stepwise). To analyze the data, SPSS (23). The findings concluded that emotional stability, agreeableness, conscientiousness, openness to experience, and extraversion are negative co-relates of job experience. However, only emotional stability and agreeableness were proven to be predictors while the other traits were not. The need for further research is suggested in this category as the results are limited to this sample only.
