Sammanfattning
Det finns både beskrivande och värdeladdade aspekter av självskattningsformulär som mäter femfaktormodellen (FFM). Telefonförsäljare fick genomföra webbaserade personlighetstest med värdeladdade respektive neutrala items. Diskrepansen mellan dessa antas uppskatta en evaluativ faktor. Studiens syfte var att begreppsvalidera den evaluativa faktorn genom att utreda huruvida den kan predicera ett externt kriterium såsom arbetsprestation, samt att utreda vilka specifika dimensioner av femfaktormodellen och några av dess fasetter som kan predicera arbetsprestation hos telefonförsäljare. Det fanns ingen signifikant relation mellan den evaluativa faktorn och arbetskriterium vid enkla korrelationer, men däremot vid en multipel... (More)

Det fanns ingen signifikant relation mellan den evaluativa faktorn och arbetskriterium vid enkla korrelationer, men däremot vid en multipel regressionsanalys. Vid predicering av arbetsprestation hos telefonförsäljare visade det sig att framförallt extraversion är en stabil prediktor, men att fasetterna till extraversion och samvetsgrannhet likväl är starkare prediktorer. Därtill kunde ett samband mellan social önskvärdhetsmått och arbetsprestation påvisas, liksom att social önskvärdhet och den evaluativa faktorn var relaterade. Vidare studier behöver göras för att bättre förstå sambandet mellan den evaluativa faktorn och arbetsprestation. (Less)

Abstract
There are evaluative and content aspects of self-report inventories measuring the five-factor model (FFM).Telemarketers completed a five-factor personality inventory on the Internet containing both evaluative and neutral items. The discrepancy between these items is presumed to be the evaluative factor. The aim of the study was to validate the evaluative factor by investigating its relation to external criteria, such as work performance. Furthermore, the object was to investigate which of the specific dimensions of the Big Five and its facets can predict performance of telemarketers. The result showed a non- significant relationship between the evaluative factor and the criterion for the simple correlation. However, a significant... (More)

Nevertheless, the facets of both extraversion and conscientiousness, was reported to be more consistent. In addition, a link between social desirability measures and performance is confirmed, as well as the relationship between social desirability and the evaluative factor. Further studies are needed to explain the relationship between the evaluative factor and performance more clearly/thoroughly. (Less)
