As I was doing my PhD I could not think that there are some unique traits to the scientist that make them successful. Academic work seemed to me almost anti Pavlovian with so little positive reinforcement and so much frustrations and failures. So are there unique psychological traits that can predict success in academia? We think there might be and therefore we set out to examine the personality traits that foster productivity and professional success among academics around the world.
Below please find a short survey in which you will be asked to answer a series of questions. 
As we all know how hard it is to get the research running, I truly appreciate any participation in our research and I would like to thank in advance anyone who is willing to help us. Furthermore is there are any questions regarding the research I would be more than happy to answer...

Thanks again,

Peter
