Mental Trait and Personal Characteristic Taxonomy: A Worked Example of “Best Fit” Framework Synthesis

Underperformance by too few physicians is enough to put the patient health and public trust in the health system at risk. Investigating the dangers and mistakes made by physicians, it is found that many disastrous cases were not solely due to deficiency in their skills, competence and knowledge, but considered as a major factor in their personality and values. A stable and strong personality is requiredto enable physicians to cope with such complex working conditions and enable them to take action for advancing the health system by demonstrating the maximum capacities of their learnings and knowledge with optimum quality. It is clear that medical education system, besides all educational topics, should pay particular attention to topics related to personality and personal characteristics. Therefore, in this research, we aimed to study the mental and personality traits (personal characteristics) at three levels using “Best fit framework synthesis” method to help educational planners and policymakers consider different dimensions of personality in choosing and educating future physicians with more precision and speed.
