dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this experiment was to explore the relationship between the "Big Five" personality dimensions, training and problem-solving effectiveness. The second purpose of this study was to explore the effects of training upon the quantity and self-reported quality of solutions generated to ill-structured problems. Subjects generated solutions to a problem and then were trained in either brainstorming or the hierarchical method. Then they were asked to generate additional solutions and rate their solutions. Subjects returned after a month and completed the NEO-FFI and then generated solutions to a different problem. Subjects in the hierarchical condition produced more solutions than those using brainstorming. Subjects in the hierarchical condition also rated their solutions higher on a subjective quality measure. Unexpectedly, the extroversion /introversion personality dimension was not related to overall quantity or quality. There were several personality-training interactions on the quantity and quality measures.
