Abstract

The aim of this article is to investigate if gender and personality traits influence the trust and its application in innovative management. Big Five Inventory-10 is used to measure personality traits. The research was conducted in the Czech Republic using an on-line questionnaire. A validated Czech translation of the Big Five Inventory-10 instrument was used. Findings are that one measure of trust is significantly influenced by agreeableness and conscientiousness, while the other measure (mistrust) was not significantly influenced by any of the independent variables. This paper is a replication of two previous studies conducted in Denmark. Agreeableness significantly influenced the first measure in both previous studies. In one study, agreeableness influenced also the second measure, while neuroticism had a borderline significant impact on the first measure. In the other study, neuroticism had a borderline significant impact on the second measure. In addition, the relevance of trust in innovative management is also being discussed and considered.
