Dispositional Domain Erdheim , Wang & Zickar (2006) say that individuals who work within a positive environment and enjoy their work tend to show more commitment to their work organization (as cited by Larsen & Buss, 2013). Hirsch & Peterson (2009) have found that “extraverts are more cooperative than introverts, which might contribute to their positive work experiences” (as cited by Larsen & Buss, 2013). Introverted - _______|__ + Extroverted


Dispositional Domain Individuals who have a high motivation for achievement should strive to be as agreeable as possible in order to minimize complications. Graziano & Tobin (2002) found that agreeable individuals favor using negotiation to resolve conflicts (as cited by Larsen & Buss, 2013). Disagreeable - _______|__ + Agreeable


Dispositional Domain Lee , Kelly, & Edwards (2006) have found that individuals high in conscientiousness tend not to procrastinate, thus being motivated to get things done in an efficient and timely manner (as cited by Larsen & Buss, 2013). “ exceptionally industrious, putting in the long hours of diligent hard work needed to get ahead” (Lund et al., 2006) Unconscientious - _______|__ + Conscientious


Dispositional Domain “ Emotional stability augers poorly for professional success” (Larsen & Buss, 2013, p. 82) De Vries & Van Heck (2002) have found that emotionally unstable individuals also tend to experience more fatigue over the course of the day (as cited by Larsen & Buss, 2013) Emotionally Unstable - _______|__ + Emotionally Stable


Dispositional Domain Nusbaum & Silva (2010) link those with high openness to use more creativity Sticking to what they know - _____?_____ + Using creativity Peterson , Smith & Carson (2002) have found that those high in openness “have more difficulty ignoring previously experienced stimuli” (as cited by Larsen & Buss, 2013, p. 83). Depends on other traits!


Biological Domain Larsen & Buss (2013) state, “humans are, first and foremost, collections of biological systems, and these systems provide the building blocks for behavior, thought and emotion” (p. 15) Inheritance or genes, like the seed of a palm tree growing into another palm tree a nd… Environment, the same species of a palm tree may grow differently depending on the climate and location


Intrapsychic Domain The intrapsychic domain focuses on the mental mechanisms of the personality that are driven by needs, often times happening outside of the conscious awareness (Larsen & Buss, 2013). Eating satisfies hunger Achievement satisfies motivation McClelland defines the need for achievement within an individual as a desire to be successful and to do better (as cited by Larsen & Buss, 2013). Water is a vital need for the plant’s MOTIVATION TO ACHIEVE SURVIVAL!


Cognitive-Experiential Domain Self and Self-Concept: Identifies how we view ourselves in the present, past and future “ Achievement feels awesome! Let’s do it again!” Habitual Emotions Subjective Experience + High Emotional Stability + Positive Emotional Habits = Achievement Motivation!


Social & Cultural Domain Fundamental ways in which personality influences, and is influenced by, social interaction as well as cultural differences. Venus Flytrap Seemingly “aggressive” to humans; Normal to its species! Inevitable Differences in Behaviors


Adjustment Domain Coping Mechanisms = Emotional Stability Ahh ! OPTIMISM! THIS GUY It’s all good!


CONCLUSION Achievement Motivated Individuals… Extroverted Agreeable Conscientious Emotionally Stable Open to Experience (within ones comfort zone)
