Abstract

This study aims at analyzing students' personality profile of a group of students who attended a basic program (N=165) that would help them become future student leaders. It also intends to compare the personality profile between male (N=103) and female (N=62) subjects. The 16PF personality test was used to analyze the data in this study. The findings show trait 5 of the 16 personality factors that measures leadership qualities i.e. thinking trait, was at stage 4 for both, male and female. This suggests that their thinking skill is still low; emotional stability trait was at stage 5 which points to instability, also, for both genders; dominance trait was at 4 for female and 5 for male which implies that males are more dominant. As for regulation awareness, females had a higher reading compared to the males with the reading of stages 6 and 4 respectively. On the other hand, both male and female are at stage 4 for trust trait which suggests group orientation is favoured over individual. It is hoped that the findings of this study would be used as the basis for developing students' leadership excellence in moving towards more ethics and academics.
