Select and research 2 athletic leaders of your choice. One leader should be someone that you like and the second leader should be someone that you dislike. Apply the Five-Factor Trait Theory to analyze both leaders on each of the 5 parameters.

Write a 1-page blog post that examines the personality traits of both leaders. Address the following:

  • What was unique about the leader?
  • How did they rate overall on an empirical scale?
  • How does biology impact their personality traits?
  • How does their personality trait impact their leadership development and engagement?
  • Compare and contrast the personality traits of both leaders.
  • Does this analysis give you any insight into why you like one and are against the other?
  • What are some strengths and weaknesses of the Five-Factor of Trait theory?
