OLIVEIRA, Luana Paula de  and  ZERBINI, Thaís. Relationships between learning strategies and personality traits in corporate training. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.1, pp. 1335-1343. ISSN 1984-6657.

Evaluation of the influences of individual aspects in training, development, and education (TD& E) actions which contribute to its success. This study aimed to investigate relationships between learning strategies and personality traits, according to the Big Five Factors theory, in face-to-face corporate training. Eighty-six employees from a telecommunications company participated. The revised personality inventory for neuroticism, extraversion, and openness (NEO-FFI-R) and the Learning Strategies scale were used. Descriptive statistical analyses and correlation coefficient tests were performed. There were positive and negative correlations between the studied variables and their influence on the expected results in TD& E actions. These findings corroborate international research and contribute to the advancement of research in the TD& E area in the national context by inserting the variable of personality traits, since it expands the knowledge about the trainees' characteristics and improves the design of training to be more adapted to the clientele.

Keywords : corporate training; learning strategies; personality traits.
