Abstract


The relationship between personality and career success was investigated in a questionnaire study with a sample of 200 doctors and educators, who were employed in different hospitals and universities on different organizational designations. Personality judged by the "Big Five Personality Model". Career Success comprised of subjective (intrinsic) career success (financial success, life success, interpersonal success and job success) and objective (extrinsic) career success (salary and promotion) dimensions. In Pakistani society/culture people unaware about their personality, so the research on personality and its impact on career success were unjustified and mostly insignificant. Meaning of success in our society is to earn money and get competitive advantages as compared to colleagues. Personal life and interpersonal relationships have less worth in success counter. Research presents the insignificant impact of personality, person environment-fit and job performance on career success. With respect to limitations of the study, construct of personality like: education, knowledge and experience levels not included in research.

Author Keywords: Intrinsic career success, extrinsic career success, Big five personality.
