A person's personality is comprised of their tendencies in thinking, feeling, and behaving. "Explore the personality traits of secondary school teachers, specifically in Punjab, Pakistan," was the overarching goal of the research. This research goal is pressing and important because it can improve teaching methods and student outcomes. The researchers set out to learn more about secondary school teachers' character quirks. The purpose of this study is to examine the gender gap in secondary school teachers' personality traits. With this goal in mind, 440 secondary school teachers were selected as the study's total sample. We used a 24-item self-administered questionnaire to look at the instructors' character traits. John and Srivastava's (1999) Big Five Factors served as the basis for a 24-item personality assessment that measures these traits. Agreeableness, neuroticism, openness to experience, extraversion, and conscientiousness are the five main personality traits that are comprised of TPTS. We utilized a 5-point Likert scale for the survey. Using an average mean value for each personality trait, the data were analyzed and interpreted by calculating the mean, standard deviation, and t-test for each item of each trait possessed by participants. High levels of agreeableness, openness to experience, awareness, and extraversion were part of a balanced personality profile found among secondary school teachers in the study. Possessing the ideal character traits for a career in education is believed to be the key to a successful classroom. That being said, the Pakistani Ministry of Education would do well to take applicants' personalities into account when making teaching appointments.
