Explaining Personality Traits Appropriate for the Mission of Security Intelligence Organizations
The present research aims to explain the general personality traits appropriate for the mission of security-intelligence organizations. The main question is which personality traits are appropriate to the mission of the security-intelligence organizations. Due to the exploratory nature of the research, no hypothesis was proposed, and the research questions were answered only through the library research and field studies (interview and questionnaires). The statistical population of the research is composed of the employees of one of the security-intelligence organizations. Due to its specific circumstances and the impossibility of access to all of these individuals, 50 of them were selected using the available sampling method. In order to collect data, firstly by referring to the research literature and interview with the experts, a short form 60-item Neo Questionnaire was conducted on the statistical population. Then, the results were tested using descriptive and inferential statistics, which indicates that the majority of the employees of this security-intelligence organization is on the scale of accountability (conscientiousness) and adaptability. Also, the proposed occupational requirements of the statistical population are summarized in these two personality scales. In total, the correlation coefficient between the scores obtained on the Neo scale and the employees’ assessment score was 0.77, which indicates a positive and high correlation between these two variables; it is therefore inferred that the employees with higher scores in the job assessment also have high scores in the subscales of accountability (conscientiousness) and adaptability. It is concluded that employees with personality traits of conscientiousness and adaptability are appropriate for employment in security-intelligence organizations.
