The objective of this study was to assess the relationship between personality characteristics and career anchors of pharmacists. A cross-sectional survey design was used.The study population consisted of pharmacists (n = 56) in a corporate environment. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the NEO Personality Inventory (Revised), and the Career Anchor Inventory, were used as measuring instruments.The results of the empirical study showed that personality characteristics of pharmacists were related to their career anchors. Extroversion and emotional stability were positively related to general management, service, pure challenge, and entrepreneurial challenge. Introversion, neuroticism and low openness were related to technical / functional competence and security as career anchors.
