Career: Industrial Psychologists

Filed under: Industrial-Organizational,North America — Admin @ 5:53 pm

Industrial psychologists have studied how to match the personalities of workers with various jobs. One theory argues that people’s personalities can be described in terms of five traits, or qualities: outgoing, easygoing, responsible, stable, and open. Research shows that responsible, stable employees are valuable in any job. To succeed in jobs dealing with the public, workers must also be outgoing and easygoing.

Industrial psychologists have researched many other employment issues, from ensuring workplace justice to balancing roles at work and at home.
