Abstract

The present study investigates the relationship between personality and academic burnout, specifically, the investigation of predictive effects of personality on the experience of academic burnout. A sample of convenience, psychology student participants (N=120), from California State University, San Bernardino, took part in a three part questionnaire distributed via the SONA survey systems. The first part questionnaire consisted of demographic inquiry, the second part consisted of the Goldberg’s IPIP BigFive Factor Markers survey which measured for personality and, finally, the third part of the questionnaire consisted of the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student (MBI-SS) which measured for learning burnout. It was hypothesized that neuroticism would be positively correlated with burnout, whereas, conscientiousness, agreeableness, and extraversion would be negatively correlated with burnout. Overall, the study hoped to bring clarity and understanding to the correlation between personality and learning burnout and remains optimistic in its contributions to similar future research and its application in academic settings.
