The Evaluation of Willingness to Receive Stroke: Determining the Impact of Emotional Intelligence and Personality Factors (Published)

Emotional intelligence (EI) and personality traits are associated with satisfactory experiences by the learners, according to certain studies. In turn, the relationship between personality factors, emotional intelligence and willingness to receive stroke is also important. Therefore, present study aims to explore the relationship between willingness to receive stroke, emotional intelligence and personality traits. The study was conducted on 296 high school students from schools located in different areas of Mashhad. It was hypothesized that EI and personality traits would significantly predict the level of willingness to receive stroke. The relationship of emotional intelligence and personality traits with willingness to receive strokes was explored and tested both theoretically and empirically. Schutte’s (1998) Self-report Emotional Intelligence (SSEIT), the Big Five Inventory (BFI), and Students’ Stroke Scale (SSS) were used to assess emotional intelligence, personality traits and willingness to receive stroke among high school students. These postulates were examined by Statistical package for the social sciences (SPSS) and structural equation modeling (SEM) techniques. The findings revealed that EI subscales were significant predictors of verbal and nonverbal strokes. Among the subscales, well-being positively and significantly predicted verbal stroke, while self-control negatively predicted non-verbal stroke. Further, Personality subscales were predictors of verbal strokes as well. Among the subscales, agreeableness and openness positively and significantly predicted verbal stroke, while neuroticism was a negative predictor. The findings suggest that emotional intelligence components are strong predictors of different components of stroke. Whereas, subscales of personality traits were found to be poor predictors of stroke components and only agreeableness and openness were found to positively and significantly predict verbal stroke.

Personality Traits of Teachers and Desired Leadership Styles (Published)

The study investigated the relationship between teachers’ personality traits and their desired leadership styles in the Cape Coast Metropolis of Ghana. The descriptive survey design was used for the study with a total of 417 employees randomly selected from five secondary schools in the metropolis. Results indicate that all the five personality traits had significant positive relationship with transformational leadership style, with conscientiousness having the strongest relationship and neuroticism the weakest. Thus conscientious teachers have higher preference for transformational leadership than employees of the other personality traits. Neuroticism had the strongest positive relationship with transactional leadership style among the other traits. Agreeableness and openness also had significant (weak) positive relationship with transactional leadership style. Conscientiousness however did not have significant relationship, with extraversion relating negatively with transactional leadership style. It was recommended that school managers should endeavour to know the traits of their subordinates and apply the appropriate leadership styles when dealing with them to bring about good interpersonal relationship and satisfaction at the workplace.
