In this study, a sample of 658 participants completed the MBTI and the Neo-PI-R an inventory that measures the Big Five personality traits of Neuroticism, Extroversion, Openness, Agreeableness and Conscientiousness. The results indicate a significant positive relationship of a risk tolerance with MBTI factors of Extroversion, Intuitive, and Perceiving and a significant negative relationship risk tolerance with MBTI of Introversion, Sensing, and Judging. The following NEO factors are associated with a positive relationship with risk tolerance measure: Extroversion, Agreeableness, and Openness. These results provide important information that profoundly adds to the body of literature on risk tolerance and personality type.
