This study made a comparative analysis of the personal variables such as sex, age, civil status, educational attainment, length of service, socio-economic status and job performance of three groups of 607 school personnel: the university officials, the teaching personnel or the faculty and the non- teaching personnel or the administrative staff and their personality traits. Personality traits were measured using the Manchester Personality Questionnaire and the Big Five Personality Factors. Significant relationships were found between some profile variables and dimensions of personality trait. Implications and future research directions were discussed.
