A quantitative study of preschool teachers' personality and work satisfaction (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats var att undersöka huruvida personlighetsdragen extraversion, vänlighet, samvetsgrannhet, neuroticism, öppenhet och ödmjukhet-ärlighet kunde predicera upplevd arbetstrivsel bland förskolepersonal i Västra Götalands län. Uppsatsen har en kvantitativ ansats och bygger på en tvådelad enkät, bestående av en arbetstrivseldel och ett personlighetstest. Undersökningen innefattade 54 respondenter, med en medelålder på ca fyrtio år, som alla arbetade som förskolepersonal. Studien var baserad på Herzbergs tvåfaktormodell och personlighetsteorin big five. Respondenterna valdes ut genom ett bekvämlighets urval. Resultatet av studien visade på att de starkaste korrelationerna med nöjdhet av de yttre faktorerna var neuroticism och öppenhet och att de starkaste korrelationerna för vikten av inre faktorer var neuroticism och öppenhet samt ödmjukhet-ärlighet. Även extraversion predicerade inre arbetstrivsel i form av vikten av erkännande.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis was to examine how much of work satisfaction that can be explained from the personality traits extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, openness and humility-honesty in preschool teachers in Västra Götaland's County. This thesis was based on a quantitative study and used a questionnaire, first part being about work satisfaction, second being a personality test. The study was based on Herzberg's two factor model and the Big Five personality theory. The study included 54 respondents, with a mean age of forty years, all working as preschool teachers. The results of this study showed that the strongest correlations for satisfaction with external factors were neuroticism and openness and that the strongest correlations for intrinsic factors were neuroticism, openness and humility-honesty. Extroversion was also a factor that could predict work satisfaction, in the form of recognition.
