So if you are working lad you know that this is that time of the year when we all are waiting with a sustained breath to know how our performance at work would be analyzed. Will we get the desired promotion or the much-awaited increment? And in case you’re married, a study conducted by researchers at Washington University found how certain traits of your spouse’s personality plays a big role in your professional success.
After conducting thorough research, the scientists came out with the conclusion that conscientiousness is that desirable trait in a spouse’s personality which can have a favorable impact on a person’s professional life. According to the study report, “We found that having a partner who is conscientious is associated with higher levels of job satisfaction, higher levels of income and a greater likelihood of job promotion.”
According to the Big Five personality theory, there are five underlying traits that make up an individual’s overall personality. So let’s tell you what are these traits- openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. Conscientiousness, the quality of wishing to do one's work or duty diligently, is the trait that makes a person trustworthy and prompt.
According to senior consultant psychologist Shweta Singh, “Conscientiousness is not merely about being responsible or dutiful. A conscientious person has a high degree of awareness about how his or her behavior would have an impact upon people around them. While it is always desirable to have a dutiful spouse, but having a husband or wife who focuses on creating conditions that inspire a person to work effectively can be very motivating, both at home and in office.”
A person lucky enough to have a conscientious spouse has got a better chance of job satisfaction because he or she has all the support and care needed from a partner. People with such personality traits are protective and sensitive towards a partner’s needs and makes sure that they hold a happy relationship.
