Abstract

The investigator of the present study examined the Big Five personality traits of 94 Collegiate Outdoor Recreation (COR) professionals employed within a campus recreation setting. Using the Five Factor Model (FFM) of personality, the researcher explored the relationship between personality traits (Neuroticism, Extraversion, Openness, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness) and level of affect toward common COR program duties (General Office, Personnel Management, Interpersonal, and Program Specific). Results indicated Extraversion was positively correlated with Interpersonal job task affect. Implications to practice and suggestions for future research are discussed.
