Washington, March 4 (ANI): Personality does not have an influence when choosing a professional career, according to a new study.

The findings by researchers from the University of Cadiz (UCA) were based on interviews and questionnaires carried out on 735 secondary school students from the province of Cadiz.

"The data shows us that there is no strong relationship between the choice of university degree (vocation) and personality traits," Manuel Antonio Garcia Sedeno, main researcher of the study and professor of Evolutionary and Educational Psychology at UCA, said.

"As a result the use of personality questionnaires in career guidance processes will have to be reconsidered and taken as relevant information," Manuel added.

The study has been pubslihed in the journal Psychological Reports. (ANI)
