Project co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund and the National Center for Research and Development under the Smart Growth Programme.


Theoretical assumptions
of Staffly tools

Main theory

The design of the tool is based on the theory of the Big Five (Costa, McCrae). This is the central concept, on the basis of which the features of the profiles were sorted. The ranges are defined as: Extraversion, Agreeableness, Openness, Emotional Stability (the opposite of Neuroticism in the base concept), Conscientiousness. In addition to the assumptions of the five-factor personality theory, the tool was based on additional areas:

Cooperation & Communication

Communication is understood as an interaction (transaction) between two parties. It refers to interpersonal as well as group communication situations. Communication is understood both as a personal trait (related to expressing oneself, formulating thoughts, needs, one’s own opinion) and interpersonal competence (related to building relationships, understanding the messages of others).



The tool includes: behavioral indicators related to theories in the field of emotional and social intelligence (Goleman), references to multiple intelligences (Gardner) and aspects of cognitive functioning (memory, attention, perceptiveness)



Five-factor model


Creative thinking expresses itself in operations such as seeking new and unusual solutions, generating new ideas (e.g., for quality improvement and development), unusual applications of existing elements or spontaneous conjecture (Torrance).



Motivational indicators understood as a set of factors related to individual challenge to act and take on ambitious challenges (individually) with reference to the concepts of Karasek, Zuckerman and Schuler.



Temperament is a set of grouped personality factors that determine a person’s adaptation to the environment, his ability to assimilate experiences and learning process (H. Eysenck 1952, 1967, 1982).


The Big Five

Their research shows that levels of extraversion and neuroticism begin to decline around the age of 30, while agreeableness and conscientiousness become more dominant with age. Nevertheless, the authors of the concept consider each trait to be relatively constant and complementary (Campbell, Lindzey, Hall).

By definition, the Big Five model is universal, independent of gender, ethnicity or culture. It has been noted, for example, that countries where citizens are characterized by low levels of extraversion and high levels of conscientiousness are distinguished by high power distance. In contrast those, where extraversion and openness to experience predominate, are masculinist cultures.

The traits that make up the Big Five can affect many aspects related to both behavioral and emotional factors. Costa and McCrae  in their research  argue that extraversion and agreeableness are areas that determine interpersonal behavior, agreeableness and openness affect attitudes, while extraversion and neuroticism are part of emotion-related issues.


It is defined as a personality trait characterized by openness, assertiveness, activity, seeking new experiences and comfort with the need to be with other people.

→ Emotional stability

Neuroticism is defined as the tendency to experience heightened tension due to accompanying emotions and stress. Neuroticism is understood as experiencing negative affect prolonged over time or at elevated levels.

More about neuroticism


It is defined as the ability to adjust and seek for compromises. It manifests itself, for example, through: kindness, altruism, modesty, submissiveness, tactfulness, flexibility.

More about agreeableness


Conscientiousness is understood as self-discipline and a desire for organization and order. Conscientious people feel comfortable when they can follow a set plan. They meticulously plan their actions, which can involve persistence in pursuit of a goal.

to experience

Openness refers to six different aspects; imagination, aesthetics, feelings, action, and openness to ideas and values. People who are open to experience are eager to try new experiences, they are endowed with imagination, they have no problem dreaming and then carrying out step-by-step tasks to meet their goals, they show interest in learning, developing or meeting new people and gaining new experiences.
