In this paper, we look at what the SACS 6 Personality Inventory measures. Personality traits are a set of characteristics that influence how our cognitions, behaviours, and emotional patterns. In the workplace they provide a valuable indicator of how an employee is likely to behave, particularly in times of stress, and are also a predictor of a range of workplace outcomes including counter-productive workplace behaviours.
One of the most common taxonomies for personality is the “Big 5” (Zillig et al., 2002) which measures openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism.
