Author: Eman E. Atta

Abstract: The study aimed to figure out the relationship between the big five factors of personality and the performance of quality work among faculty teaching staff members. The participants were 212 male and female teaching staff members specialized in humanities and scientific disciplines. The descriptive correlational method was adopted. There were two instruments: the big five-factor personality scale and a questionnaire for the teaching staff members’ performance of quality work. Findings revealed the participants’ lower possession of the factors of openness and extroversion than the other big factors of personality. In addition, there was a partial direct relationship between some of the big five factors of personality and the faculty teaching staff members’ performance of the quality tasks. Also, there were statistically significant differences in the big five factors of personality in favor of those with high-level performance of quality work except for the factor of openness to experience. Finally, there was a statistically significant difference in the neuroticism factor in favor of those holding position in the quality field whereas such difference was not verified in the other factors.
