Title: Working for nothing
Abstract: We document the differences in time allocation to the labour market by different personality types in the UK, and show how they may account for some of the labour market disadvantage experienced by more neurotic types (and the advantage experienced by more conscientious types) which has been documented in numerous studies. We make use of all nine available waves of the Understanding Society Survey and show that particular personality types are more prone to working longer hours, and unpaid overtime hours, and experiencing time pressures.
