To motivate on a personal level : How different personality types aremotivated as event volunteers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Att besöka olika typer av evenemang har blivit ett alltmer vanligt sätt att förgylla vardagen. Ofta är det ett fåtal personer som ligger bakom planeringen av ett evenemang, men för att lyckas genomföra det på ett framgångsrikt sätt krävs det mer personal, och detta ofta i form av volontärer. Då dessa ställer upp utan finansiell ersättning, är det lätt hänt att det råder en brist på motivation. Avhopp av volontärer är vanligt förekommande och kan ge evenemanget ödesdigra konsekvenser, så det ligger i arrangörens intresse att försöka få dem att stanna och detta genom att hålla dem motiverade. I denna studie har det undersökts vad som skiljer olika personlighetstyper åt när det kommer till motivation. Genom att låta ett antal studenter genomföra ett personlighetstest baserat på modellen The Big Five och sedan genomföra intervjuer med 14 av dem, har det bildats enklarare uppfattning kring hur olika individer motiveras på bästa sätt. Efter att intervjuerna analyserats med hjälp av två personlighetsklassificeringsmodeller samt två motivationsteorier, har vissa skillnader funnits. Studien har fått fram både väntade samband mellan vilken personlighetstyp respondenten klassificerats som och vad denna anser sig motiveras av, men även somliga mer oväntade resultat.

Abstract [en]

It has become more and more common to visit different kinds of events as a way to glorify the everyday life. Usually, it is only a few people working with planning an event, but to get a successful result more staff is required, and in many cases these are consisting by volunteers. Since these people are helping without any monetary compensation, it can be hard to keep the volunteers motivated, which can be a devastating consequence for the event. Therefore, it is very much in the interest of the arrangers to keep the motivation high throughout the whole event. In this study it has been examined what differs the different personality types when it comes to motivation. By letting a number of students fill out a personality test which was based on The Big Five model and then letting 14 of them go through an interview, a clearer picture has been formed about how different individuals are getting motivated the best way. When the interviews had been analyzed through two different personality models and two motivation theories, some differences have been found. This study has found some relationships between which personality the respondent has been classified as and what they consider themselves to be motivated by. Some findings have been expected while others have been more surprising.
