The article is probably not what you expect. When we think about personality we think of it as something that someone has or does not have. For example: “She has a great personality” or “He has a big personality”. Often we associate personality with a certain limited amount of characteristics such as gregariousness and extroversion. These traits are associated with people who are persuasive and as a result, they may convince their employers (current or future) to pay them more. I’m no psychic, but that is probably what you thought this article is about. The fact is that everyone has a personality (believe me) and there is new research to prove that “people whose personality traits match up well with the demands of their jobs earn more than those who are in less ideal careers for their personality types” (Winerman, 2018, p.11). And that is what this article is really about. Career Guidance.
