Abstract

The aim of the research is to establish the relationship between personality and supervisor success. Personality was measured with the 16-Personality Factor Questionnaire (16PF) and supervisor success through a performance measuring system. A literature study was done to verify the relationship between personality and work success. The sample consisted of 74 supervisors, mainly white males, working at a dairy factory. The relationship between the 16PF results and supervisor success has been statistically established through Pearson and Spearman's Product-moment correlation method, standard and stepwise multiple regression analysis and T-tests for independent groups. The results show that factors B, C, L, 0, Q4 and the second order factor QII of the 16PF has a meaningful relationship with supervisor success. It was found that age, qualifications and experience do not influence the relationship between personality and supervisor success. The findings cannot be generalized but personality can be taken into consideration when evaluating employees, for example in selection.
