The Big-Two Model of Personality and Work-Family Conflict

İzlem Gözükara, Ömer Şimşek


Personality traits can be categorized using a hierarchical structure in accordance with their correlations. Such hierarchy is derived by collecting more specific personality traits with similar underlying sources under a more general trait. Personality traits affect how people behave and perceive situations in multiple life domains. Prior research demonstrated the predictive value of the personality variables in multiple role occupation; however, most researchers have used the Big-Five personality traits. Therefore, the present study aims to discuss work-family conflict from the perspective of the Big-Two model of personality. The study sample included 250 participants. The study data was collected using questionnaires and analyzed by testing a structural equation model. The results showed that individuals who score high in stability experience greater work-family conflict, whereas individuals scoring high in plasticity experience less work-family conflict.
