RABELO, Ivan Sant' Ana et al. Application of the personality scales EFS and EFEx withim the organizational context. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.1, pp. 109-117. ISSN 1677-0471.

The aim of this article was to investigate personality traits such as extraversion and agreeableness in professionals within organizational context, besides explore possible differences in the sex, age and job position variables. The sample consisted of 68 participants, 45.6% females and 54.4% males, aged from 16-62 years old. The Extroversion Factor Scale (Escala Fatorial de Extroversão - EFEx) and the Agreeableness Factor Scale (Escala Fatorial de Socialização - EFS) were applied. A good precision in both tests (a=0,87) was obtained and a positive correlation of 0,47 between the Agreeableness factor (EFS) with the Social Interactions factor (EFEx) was observed. On the other hand, the Pro-sociability factor (EFS) showed a negative correlation of -0,52 with the Pride factor (EFEx), both correlations with statistical signification (p<0.01). The scales demonstrated to assess correlated constructs, however, further studies are necessary in order to verify the peculiarities of these instruments within the organizational context.
