Personality profile of volunteers from Crisis Intervention Centre in Gdańsk
 
The aim of the presented study was to introduce personality profiles of the volunteers at the Crisis Intervention Centre in Gdańsk in order to subject them into three main groups and determine what are imperative characteristics for a volunteer to be accepted as a future worker. The sample consisted of 20 volunteers, the tool used in the research is NEO-FFI (NEO Five Factor Inventory) and Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire INTE. The article consists of the problematic aspects connected with idea of volunteering work, it was proven that volunteers can be characterized by higher scores in factor of conscientiousness, agreeableness, openness to experience, extraversion and lower scores of a neuroticism factor. Volunteers with higher scores in emotional intelligence, conscientiousness and extraversion succeed in their work and they are proposed further cooperation with Crisis Intervention Centre. Furthermore, it can be distinguished three different concentrations of volunteers profiles: (a) with higher scores in conscientiousness and agreeableness; (b) with higher scores in openess to experience and emotional intelligence; (c) with low scores in extravertic behaviors, but high in agreeableness and conscientiousness. Not many researches that examine the personality traits of volunteers working in the institution can be found therefore the findings of this research are expanding our understanding of this field.
