74
factors scores within each of the four performance dimensions
for each of the six judges.
To determine the reliability of judges, intraclass
correlations were computed according to the model by Shrout
and Fleiss (1979) The corrected intraclass correlation
(ICC) for Leadership was .68, for Teamwork .59, for Drive
.68, and for Planning and Organizing .72. Based on these
estimates of reliability, it was concluded that there was
agreement and consistency among judges when they indicated
their perception of the relationship between personality
traits and performance dimensions.
Additionally, a two-way analysis of variance was
computed. The dependent variable was the mean scores on each
personality factor within each dimension for each judge
(5x4x6=120). The two independent variables were the
personality factors and the judges. There was a main effect
for the personality factors analyzed separately for each of
the four dimensions, as well as overall. This indicates that
there is a significant difference in the pattern of means
among personality factors within each performance dimension.
Next, a cut-off was established at 3.0. The top two
mean scores within each performance dimension which were
greater than or equal to 3.0 would be considered
representative of that dimension. The mean scores for each
personality factor on each dimension are presented in Table
2.1.
