If I only Knew

Reuters is reporting the results of a study by researchers at the University of Western Sydney in Australia, in which the results show that in many cases your personality plays a bigger role in determining what job people ended up with. Apparently education and parent’s occupation are not of much influence as thought.
The study also foun d that people in management roles tended to be more open to experience, more committed but less agreeable than others in different job roles. The clerical workers were the most committed but were least open to change. The sales people were the most extroverted and agreeable.
The study looked at 20,000 individuals from the perspective of five characteristics: openness to experience, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness and emotional stability.
