Key words: Extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, openness to experience, big five inventory, work involvement, utrecht operate engagement size.

Hence, actions are not only inspired by the enviornment but the environment is partially shaped by individual. For instance , individualsвЂџ optimistic expectations impact how they react, and the environmental consequences created by their actions then transform
It is extensively agreed that engagement comes from both
