Proactive Personality
Proactive behaviour: taking initiative to improve one's current
circumstances or create new ones
Requires going against the status quo
Proactive personality: stable personal disposition, taking initiative
across a range of activities/situations, enacting positive change on
one's environment
General Self-Efficacy
General self-efficacy: general trait, one's belief in ability to perform
successfully in a range of situations
It is a MOTIVATIONAL trait rather than an affective trait
because it is one's belief in succeeding at a task rather than
their positive or negative view of themselves
GSE develops over one's lifetime; if one has experienced many
successes than he or she many have a high general self-efficacy
- also higher job satisfaction and performance
