Assignment 1: Personality in Practice
Each person’s personality is unique, although the dimensions along which we all vary have been identified. The Big Five personality traits are five broad dimensions of personality that are used to describe human personality. The Big Five has been preferably used rather than other models because it is able to account for different traits in personality without overlapping.

Personality influences/impacts many aspects of organizational behavior.
