The Relationship between Personality Traits and Financial Behaviours of Academic Staff: Research for SDU Vocational Schools


Abstract Individuals who need to behave in a manner of rationality engage in financial behaviours nearly every day and these behaviours influence their financial well-being (Dew and Xiao, 2011). The level of individuals’ financial well-being depends on the ability to manage financial resources and financial behaviours effectively.

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there were relationships between vocational school academicians’ self-reported financial behaviours and personality tendencies. Two hundred and eight instructors from the vocational schools of Süleyman Demirel University completed a survey using the Big Five Inventory (Alkan, 2007) and the Financial Management Behavior Scale (FMBS) (Dew and Xiao, 2011). In order to test the planned hypothesis in accordance with these two variables (personality and financial behaviour), factor analysis and correlation analysis were preferred. Based on the findings, it was concluded that there is no significant relationships between five-factor personality traits and financial management behaviours (except consctiousness personality tarit and insurance behaviours). Achieving findings from this study were discussed in a context for researchers for future studies
