The Relationship Between Personality Traits and Stress at Work
Keywords:Personality; Stress; Teachers; Work
Introduction: Stress is one of the normal phenomena, which in most cases are accompanied by problems and defects in the work we perform. There is a big burden in our education system, due to various reforms and socio-economic transition, but on the other hand we also have problems with the quality of teaching which are affecting the development of teaching in inadequate forms. Methodology: The research included a total of 60 teachers from schools in the municipality of Prizren, based on a random sample. Descriptive methods and correlation were used as methods of analysis to measure the correlation between the two variables, ie how much personality affects the level of stress at work. The main purpose of the research was the correlation coefficient of personality type to the level of stress in the work of teachers. Results: The general level of personality factors affects the increase of stress at work. The results show that the correlation between personality and stress (things that teachers find difficult to do) is .113 a low positive correlation, while the significance level is .389 which means that it is above the 5% confidence level, while even the correlation between personality and stress (the things teachers do most) has a low negative correlation of -.159, whereas the significance is .224 which is above the 5% confidence level. Teachers who feel attractive and extravagant do not have high stress. Teachers who feel the need for power have high levels of stress. Conclusion: Personality is an important factor for each individual, especially his impact on stress at work. For teachers the formation of personality should be done during the stages of development and formal education. Teachers have different personalities and also have different work habits. From the confirmation of the hypothesis it has resulted that personality has no influence on the increase of stress in the work of teachers.
