The influence of personality and ability on undergraduate teamwork and team performance

The influence of personality and ability on undergraduate teamwork and team performance

“Extraversion was negatively correlated to failing to do an equal share, and positively correlated to taking a leadership role, encouraging the group to be timely, and delivering promised work. Agreeableness was, unsurprisingly, negatively correlated to efforts to excessively dominate group discussions. Conscientiousness was positively correlated to being engaged, taking a leadership role, contributing useful ideas, encouraging group to be timely, delivering promised work, and clearly communicating.” (p.8-9)
