One of the factors that is considered when choosing people to hire or select him for a particular job is a person's personality. It is a set of psychological characteristics that exist in a person permanently and affect his behavior and thinking. Having a fit between a person's personality traits and job characteristics will increase his job satisfaction and can have a profound effect on a person's better performance in his job. In the following, we will introduce the most important personality dimensions of people in the workplace and discuss the evaluation of personality or its impact on success.
Defining people's cognitive personality and evaluating their behavior
The mental, behavioral, and emotional patterns that make a difference between one person and another are called personality. Each person's personality is rooted in genetic issues and their environment and usually remains constant in life, but sometimes the failures and successes that people experience in life in the long run cause changes in the personality type of the person. They are different personalities. Everyone's personality is unique, but different people's personalities also have commonalities.
5 Dimensions of personality and evaluation of people in the workplace
The most important personality dimensions in the workplace are:
Introversion or extroversion
Extroverts are sociable and talkative and communicate very quickly with others. They love the people and the community is central to them. These people have high self-confidence and enjoy a wide and intense relationship with others and feel comfortable being in different teams and groups. These people are successful in sales and jobs that require managerial responsibilities, and they also inspire behavior in leadership positions. The vendors, the ship and plane crew, and the hotel receptionist are extroverts.
Introverts are calm, quiet, withdrawn, and seemingly shy, have less social contact, prefer to work alone, and have little need for social contact in any form. Truck drivers, writers, and gardeners are often introverts.
Some people have a great ability to stay calm and calm and control stress. These people are calm, satisfied and firm, and they are very strong emotionally, and they are under constant problems and troubles.
But others have high levels of psychosis and get angry faster and kneel in the face of anxiety and depression, so they can not make decisions with a clear mindset and manage complex situations well.
These personality traits affect success, so these people usually have a low level of success. They are often dissatisfied with their work and show a desire to leave the workplace. People who can not cope with these stresses and work pressures suffer from mental and physical illnesses, depression and irrational and capricious behaviors.
This personality trait shows how organized, purposeful, independent, precise, and well-organized a person is. People with a work conscience are hardworking, self-controlled, and disciplined, and enjoy work ethic, perseverance, and consideration. People have a restrained work conscience and have a purpose in their work and are always available to work. But others are irregular, very easily distracted from their work and are unreliable.
Behavioral assessment in the workplace
Compatibility and compatibility
Behavioral evaluation; The relationship between people's personalities and how they work
These indicators have a high level of adaptation or agreement to the situation and are popular with others and form a strong relationship with others. They are happy, cheerful, warm and empathetic. They are friendly, helpful and positive, and have a willingness to sacrifice for the benefit of others. This dimension is called compatibility and pleasantness. Nurses, social workers, and elementary school teachers are usually kind and pleasant people. Their consistency and pleasantness, if they are a manager, does not allow them to treat their rebellious employees properly, so it is a drawback.
On the other hand, people with low levels of adaptation have the personality traits of skepticism and opposition. Another characteristic of them is that these people are stubborn, grumpy and sour.
Welcoming experience (openness) and being creative
We have already explained in the section on wet psychology that curious, imaginative, and artistic people have a high level of openness or empiricism. These people love unusual emotions, adventure, art and ideas, and they have a lot of curiosity and a sense of creativity and seek diversity. They perform well in educational settings and can thrive and adapt to a new set of tasks when they need to acquire new skills and flexibility. But if one does not have openness, one is considered conservative, focused and pragmatic.
How does a person's personality type affect their work environment?
Each job has unique characteristics, such as whether the job requires mental or physical work, a crowded environment or solitude, work alone or with the group, how to supervise and many other issues; In contrast, people have their own personality traits, like to work alone or in groups, some are interested in mental activities and some are interested in physical activities, some are responsible and some are irresponsible. If a person is introverted and shows himself as an extroverted personality type and seeks work in an environment with a social atmosphere
