They prefer authoritative style of leadership. However, those with Extrovert personality type tend to accept ideas, comments and suggestions from others. They favor participative style of leadership.

The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between personality traits of leaders and leadership styles in Public Listed Companies (PLCs) in Malaysia. The instrument for this study is developed based on the Multi-facets Leadership Questionnaire and Goldberg’s Big-Five Factor Structure.
