Abstract
The purpose of this study is to compare the sociability and its impact on learner’s personality traits, in classroom and E-Learning settings to provide an insight for HRM decisions. We proposed that student’s sociability level differ between classroom and e-learning environments. We also identify that sociability is a good predictor for extroversion and openness to experience. For this cross sectional explanatory research about 534 respondents are identified with purposive sampling method. Results point out that there is significant difference in learner’s sociability, extroversion and openness to experience, in classroom and E-Learning environments. The study also established that sociability has statistically significant and positive relationship with openness to experience and extroversion. As there is not even a single study so far that have compared educational environment by using aforementioned variables in reference with development of personality, so the study is unique and a valuable contribution both in educational psychology and for decision making in HRM as well. The study will assist managers to find suitable personal for job. It will also help for training and development plan formation.
