Abstract:Developments in the personality research as well as in the achievement goals research, created a gap in research trying to relate both fields as there is no research relating the latest two models. The aim of the current research is to add knowledge in order to fix this research gap by relating the HEXACO personality model to the 3 x 2 achievement goals model. The research question in this study is: What is the relationship between the HEXACO personality traits, and the six dimensions of the 3 x 2 achievement goals of high school and pre-university students in The Netherlands? 248 students voluntary completed the HEXACO SPI (1-5 point Likert scale) and a translated version of the achievement goals model (1-7 points Likert scale) are used. A confirmatory factor analysis has been conducted to test validity of the tests. To inspect the relations of the HEXACO domains with achievement goals, correlational analyses have been conducted. Weak significant relations are found, which are comparable to previous research. Limitations of this research and suggestions for further research are mentioned.
