  2. 2. Introduction (Personality) The pattern of characteristic thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that distinguishes one person from another and that persists over time and situation, Is fairly stable and predictable throughout different situations and time, Dependent on the situation, personality traits may be more or less visible and personality may also develop over time, Changes which reflect events and feelings during the lifespan only affect the surface and not the core character Profound changes in personality are usually consequences of major life changes or deliberate effort

  4. 4. Neuroticism Tendency to experience negative emotions, such as anger, anxiety, or depression Low levels of neuroticism indicate emotional stability High levels of neuroticism increase the likelihood of experiencing negative emotions Contrasts emotional stability and even- temperedness with negative emotionality, such as feeling anxious, nervous, sad, and tense

  11. 11. Specialty of the hotel Outstanding View of the Himalayan Peaks A historic town, fine old houses and temples Opportunities to trek and explore First class hospitality
  12. 12. Methodology Made a questionnaire for 5 traits 5 questions for each questionnaire On site visit of the hotel Interviewed 15 staff members Their Roles ranged form the Manager of the hotel to ordinary waiters. To make the study vaster, different genders and age group interviewed
  13. 13. Results More of the staffs were emotionally stable yet some also were easily disturbed and irritated. 9 people had low levels of neuroticism and 6 people had high levels of neuroticism More of the staffs found themselves comfortable around people and being focal point of attraction Noticeably the roles requiring high human interaction had high levels of extraversion The people who had lower level of extraversion were related to housekeeping, gardening and security
  14. 14. Results According to our survey 9 people had high level of openness to experience People from mixed roles had high levels of openness to experience Eg. Manager, waiter, gardener, etc However about 6 people had other opinions Like openness to experience more people had high levels of agreeableness Most staff members found themselves making people at ease, feeling concerned for others and sympathizing with others
  15. 15. Results According to our survey 8 people had high levels of conscientiousness yet the remaining 7 had low levels of conscientiousness Most of them were always prepared, following duties and admiring orders The manager, the waiters and the receptionist had noticeably higher levels of conscientiousness Yet others also had lower levels of conscientiousness

  17. 17. Weakness of the study “5 Personality Traits” neglects traits as:  Religiosity  Manipulativeness  Honesty  Conservativeness  Masculinity/Femininity  Sense of humor
  18. 18. Findings A persons ratings has been found to change with time, with Agreeableness and Conscientiousness increasing, while Extroversion, Neuroticism, and Openness generally decrease as a person ages Women scored higher in both the Agreeableness and Neuroticism People with roles which are more interactive seem to have high extraversion and openness to experience People with roles which are less interactive seem to have high neuroticism.
  19. 19. Suggestions People can be more motivated to their work if their personality is adaptable, proactive and resilient. Following order, the rules and work schedule can help improve the conscientiousness Neuroticism can be improved by avoiding anger, anxiety and depression But, we cannot ask someone to change their personality Yet giving attention to emotional stability, creativity and appreciativeness create an attractive personality
