CARVALHO, Lucas de Francisco; MOREIRA, Thaline da Cunha  e  AMBIEL, Rodolfo Augusto Matteo. Relationships between career adaptability and pathological personality traits in brazilian workers. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.3, pp. 159-164. ISSN 1984-6657.

The literature offers studies relating personality traits and career adaptability, but little is known about these relationships in cases of pathological personality traits. This research aimed to verify the relationship between career adaptability and pathological personality traits in a sample of Brazilian workers. Participants were 342 individuals between 17 and 59 years old (M = 26.5, SD = 9.13), predominantly female (66.03%). All participants had been employed for at least 1 year. Participants answered the Brazilian version of the Career Adapt-Abilities Scale (CAAS-Brazil) and the Dimensional Clinical Personality Inventory 2 (IDCP-2). Some hypotheses were corroborated using correlation and regression analysis with the total sample, but we observed that more hypotheses were confirmed when only extreme groups were considered. We discuss the implications of the data findings and specifics of the study. In general, the idea of the negative relationship between adaptive capacity in a career context and pathological personality traits was supported.
