Abstract

This study is designed to determine the level of performance of personality type A and

type B of Bachelor of Science in Nursing 2nd year students (SY’ 2007-2008), who have

undergone the NCM-RLE 101 in terms of their grade in the Pre-clinical rotation.

Moreover, the significant difference on the NCM-RLE 101 grade when grouped

according to personality type was determined. This study was conducted in San Pedro

College which is located at 12 C. de Guzman Street, Davao City. The methods utilized in

gathering data were questionnaires which undergone confirmation and validation by the

Guidance Counselor of the school. Quota Sampling was used to determine what

personality type really affects their performances. The statistical tools that were used in

this study were the mean, standard deviation, and t-test for uncorrelated samples to

ensure the adequacy of the data to be presented. Based on the findings of the study, it

revealed that there was a significant difference in the personality types affecting the

performance of selected Bachelor of Science in Nursing 2nd year level students School

Year 2007-2008 second semester at the clinical area. The result of the study shows that

respondents who have type B personality mostly affect their performance at the clinical

area.

CHAPTER I

INTRODUCTION

Personality is a dynamic and organized set of characteristics possessed by a

person that uniquely influences his or her cognitions, motivations, and behaviors in

various situations (Passer, 2004). Indeed this is true, all people has their own uniqueness

within them. Personality types can be distinguished from personality traits, which come

in different levels or degrees.Our personality varies from one another and these

personalities affect our performances in different ways especially if your profession deals

with other people at all times like in the course of Nursing.

A nurse is responsible along with other health care professionals for the treatment,

safety, and recovery of acutely or chronically ill/injured people, health maintenance of

the healthy, and treatment of life-threatening emergencies in a wide range of health care

settings. Nurses may also be involved in medical and nursing research and perform a

wide range of non-clinical functions necessary to the delivery of health care.

Nurses are somewhat described as angels for their clean and white attire, also with those

innocent looks, you really can’t help but like and trust them so much. But being a nurse is

not just all about the looks. A true nurse is being measured through his/her skill,

knowledge, and attitude. Nurses are expected to be versatile because they are well trained
and exposed to different areas wherein it could only be within the clinical field or outside

areas. However, not all nurses or even student nurses are the same; they have different

Personality Types 2

qualities which made each one of them unique. These personalities have particular

corresponding behavior which it would respond properly.

At hospitals and even community settings, nurses vary from the other. One may

be knowledgeable and skillful but lacks appropriate attitude on how to deal with their

clients. Since this chosen course entails a patient- nurse relationship, the student must

adapt accordingly. Inculcated knowledge or applied skills that they have acquired as not

enough for them to have an acceptable performance. But the main issue here is what

particular personality that student nurses must show? Are those smart, highly

competitive, hostile and aggressive performing better? How about those relaxed, easy-

going, and patient? Which side would be most likely to be effective when it comes to

caring or nursing others?

And so this research seeks to find the exact personality that nurses, most

especially the future nurses must render to their patients or clients. This study about the

personality types & the effects will be able to supplement the researchers. Also, this

research would like to determine if the personality of the student nurse that would affect

their level of performance since we used the respondent’s NCM-RLE 101 grade as one of

the variable to know if there is really a significant difference in their performance at the

clinical area.

Review of Literature
Personality is everything, both physical and psychological; it includes both overt

behaviors and covert thoughts, it not only is something, but it does something.

Personality Types 3

Personality is both substance and change, both product and process, both structure and

growth. (J. & G. Feist, 2002)

We frequently use the word personality when describing others, and ourselves and

we all believe we know what it means. Perhaps we do, one psychologist suggested that

we can get a good idea of its meaning if we examine what we intend when we use the

word I. When you say I, you are in effect, summing up everything about yourself- your

likes and dislikes, fears and virtues, strengths and weaknesses. The word “I” what defines

you as an individual, as a person separate from all others (Chesney et al., 1997).

Several theories have explained the process determining formation of human

personality. Freudian, Ericksonian, and Sullivinian theories of personality development

generally emphasize the importance of nurturance, whereas biogenetic hypotheses and

theories emphasize the importance of gene transmission in the formation of personality.

Social learning and cognitive-behavioral theorists assert that personality characteristics

are acquired through the interaction of various cognitive processes with the environment.

(Johnson, 1994)

Type A and Type B Personalities

A behavior pattern or personality style that has received a great deal of attention is

the Type A pattern. Over the years physicians had noticed that heart attack victims tend
to be hostile, aggressive, impatient individuals who were over involved in their work. In

the 1950’s, two cardiologists defined a set of behavior that seemed to characterize

Personality Types 4

patients with coronary heart disease; these were labeled the Type A pattern (Atkinson et

al., 2000). People who exhibit this behavior pattern are extremely competitive and

achievement oriented; they have a sense of time urgency, find it difficult to relax, and

become impatient and angry when confronted with delays or with people whom they

view as incompetent. Although outwardly self-confident, they are prey to constant

feelings of self-doubt; they push themselves to accomplish more & more in less & less

time. Type B people don’t exhibit the characteristics of Type A. They are able to relax

without feeling guilty and to work without becoming agitated; they lack a sense of time

urgency, with its accompanying impatience, and are not easily roused to anger (Atkinson

et al., 2000)

Type A’s seem to chafe at the normal pace of events. They hurry from one

activity to another, racing the clock in self-imposed urgency. As they do, they feel a

constant sense of frustration and anger (Miller et al., 1996).

Type A behavior, the pattern associated with the potential for heart disease, has

been distinguished from Type B behavior by expressions of disgust, glaring, grimacing,

and scowling (Chesney et al., 1997).

According to Adler, first-borns are concerned with power and authority. One way

for first-borns should score high on measures of achievement; an idea has received much

research. In many areas, from college attendance to high-level meeting, first-borns have

been found to be over-represented relative to their proportion of the population. More
first-borns become eminent, and they tend to attain greater intellectual achievement in

academic settings and greater power prestige in their career. Evidence also suggest that

Personality Types 5

first-borns and only-born exhibit some of the Type A personality, a pattern associated

with heart disease (Passer, 2004).

Theoretical/Conceptual Framework

This researcher identified two different personalities that would qualify either in

type A or type B. Furthermore, it was contemplated that both traits make the individual

wise and cautious in clinical performances.

These theories was supported by Dr. Meyer Friedman developed with colleague

R.H. Rosenman that the theory Type A personality, also known as the Type A Behavior

Pattern, is a set of characteristics that includes being impatient, excessively time-

conscious, insecure about one's status, highly competitive, hostile and aggressive, and

incapable of relaxation. Type A individuals are often high-achieving workaholics who

multi-task, drive themselves with deadlines, and are unhappy about the smallest of

delays. On the other hand, Type B personality is more likely than a Type A personality to

be patient, relaxed, creative and imaginative, easy-going, also inclined to self-analyze.

Type A personalities may be highly intellectual or serious about almost everything but it

doesn’t mean that people with the type A personality are incapable of showing love,

affection or other types of non-pessimistic behavior. There is also a Type AB mixed

profile for people who cannot be clearly categorized and have a combination of both
types of personality. In addition, Type A personalities are somewhat very aggressive and

are very focused in finishing every job or task, which made them achievers and movers.

Personality Types 6

Finally, Jean Schweer mentioned that not only the patient’s well-being but also

the evaluation of the student was also measured on knowledge, skill and performance.

Additional, nursing students were evaluated based on their knowledge and understanding,

technical competence and attitudes during clinical exposure.

The researchers conceptually illustrated the relationship between the variables of

the study. The level of performance of personality type A and type B of Bachelor of

Science in Nursing 2nd year students (SY’ 2007-2008), who have undergone the NCM-

Statement of the Problem
This study aimed to determine the personality types affecting the performance of

the Bachelor of Science in Nursing from level III (former BSN 2 students of School Year

Personality Types 7

2007-2008) during their clinical performance. Since BSN 2 students are new to the

clinical set up; this research has chosen them as subject. The personality type of each

student varies on how they manage their task during their first exposure in the clinical

area.

Specifically, this study sought to answer the following questions:

1. What is the level of performance of students with personality type A in terms

of:

a. the grades in NCM-RLE 101?

2. What is the level of performance of students with personality type B in terms

of:

a. the grades in NCM-RLE 101?

3. Is there a significant difference in the level of performance in terms of NCM-

RLE 101 grade when grouped according to personality type?

Design

This study aimed to determine the difference between the level of performance of

personality type A and type B of Bachelor of Science in Nursing 2nd year students (SY’

2007-2008), who have undergone the NCM-RLE 101 in terms of their grade in the Pre-

clinical rotation, thus, the Descriptive – Comparative design was utilized since this

method is used when 2 or more groups are examined to describe the difference in the

variable that occurs naturally in the setting.

Setting
This study was conducted in San Pedro College which is located at 12 C. de

Guzman Street, Davao City.

Personality Types 9

This college is one of the most recognized schools in Davao City. It is a catholic

institution of learning dedicated to Christian education of the people of Davao and its

neighboring regions. It is managed by a religious congregation known as the Dominican

isters of the Trinity. It has curricular offering of collegiate courses and majority of the

school’s population is the Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

Participants

The subjects of the study were from the Bachelor of Science in Nursing 3rd yr.

students (SY’ 2008-2009), who have undergone the NCM-RLE 101 Pre-Clinical

Rotation, as the target population. The Quota Sampling was utilized, to come up with a

50 type A personality and type B personality to represent the total population of the 3rd

year students who undergone pre-clinical concept. These 100 students randomly came

from the selected sections that have finished the pre-clinical Concept whose grades have

been forwarded to the 3rd year level chair.

Measures
The researchers utilized the questionnaire as the instrument in gathering data. The

questionnaire was a researcher-made which was derived according to the personality test

to categorize the respondent as either type A or type B personality.

Personality Types 10

The instrument underwent several reviews and validation by the school’s

guidance counselor. The researchers had come up with a rating scale in order to guide

the respondents in answering the questionnaire. The ratings were described as follows: 1

= never, 2 = sometimes, 3 = always.

The researchers have categorized the respondents’ results according to the range

that was researcher-made.

This questionnaire was answered by putting a check on the respondent’s choice

according to the question being asked. Prior to the distribution of the said questionnaire, a

letter of request was given to provide for ethical consideration. Furthermore, the names of

the resspondents were kept confidential. The personality types of the respondents were

compared to their NCM-RLE 101 grades to determine if there are any significant

difference.

Procedure

The introductory was first made wherein information related to our study was

obtained. The necessary data were made and gathered to support the study. The

researcher submitted a letter of permission to the Dean of Nursing, Dean of College and

to the Level 3 Coordinators to allow us to gather data from the respondents who are the

selected BSN-3 students of San Pedro College. The questionnaire was prepared,

improved, validated and revised for the classification of our respondents. After the

sampling was done and verified, the questionnaires were released to the selected BSN-3

students. After the questionnaire was released to the respondents, it was again gathered

for its results. The gathered information was tallied, computed, analyzed and interpreted.

After attaining the results, conclusions were made.

CHAPTER III

RESULTS

In this chapter are the results of the data collected on the level of performance of

personality type A and type B of Bachelor of Science in Nursing 2nd year students (SY’

CHAPTER IV

DISCUSSION

In this chapter, the data are presented to answer the questions posed in this study.

The data gathered were used to categorize the respondents according to their type of

personality. Quota sampling was utilized to come up with the 50 type A and 50 type B

respondents. The grades of the respondents were formally requested to the level chair to

determine the level of performance of the two personalities.

The test results showed that type A personality has a slight higher mean than the

type B personality. This is in fact, one of the statement being supported by one of the

reference that we have obtained. As Atkinson et al. (2000), type A individuals will

perceive and experience more stress than type B individuals. Both personalities differ in

their manner on how they handle certain situation. Thus, this explains why type A

personalities has a slight elevated mean than the type B.

The level of performance of type A personality has a good interpretation in terms

of their NCM-RLE 101 grade. As being said, this type of personality competitive and
achievement oriented. As compared with the respondents who are type A, the students

give their best in performing well all their duties and responsibilities to attain a higher

grade.

As to type B personality, they also have a good level of performance on their

NCM-RLE 101 grade. Unlike the type A, this personality has a more relax manner in

Personality Types 18

performing their duty and responsibilities. As compared to the type A, their level of

performance is much higher. They don't push through with their limits and tends to

reflect within themselves.

Moreover, there is a no significant difference in the level of performance of type

A and type B personality. In nursing, a lot of factors are being considered in the level of

performance. Knowledge, skills and the most important is attitude in order to perform a

better responsibility.

This research stressed that personality types of each students are one of the

important matters that must be taken into consideration especially in their clinical

performance. Since this chosen course entails a patient- nurse relationship, the student

must adapt accordingly. Inculcated knowledge or applied skills that they have acquired as

not enough for them to have an acceptable performance. Furthermore, this study

contended on the quality of the clinical performance of the 3rd year BSN students who

were formerly exposed to the pre-clinical rotation.

This study is relevant to all those students who are either type A or type B

personality. This will become their medium for improvement or changes, thus, this can

help them adjust their personality traits as to guarantee that they can function well in the
clinical area and achieve self-actualization. Clinical Instructors may come up with better

ways of motivating and evaluating students with different personalities to achieve quality

and maximum performance, since they were responsible in inculcating knowledge and

check on the skills of their students. The Administrators of the Nursing department may

Personality Types 19

help in checking the way the Clinical Instructors handle their students and evaluate the

performance of not just the students but as well as the Clinical Instructors.
