—Personality has been found to be related to broad
spectrum of human activities and behavior. However, the effect
of personality traits on technology adoption has not been widely
researched. Eventually, as the usage of internet has shown a
tremendous increase world-wide, it is reasonable to investigate
its usage in terms of personality perspectives. Since the level of
internet usage is voluntary rather than mandated, so it is more
likely to reflect personal motives, needs, values, preferences and
other personality attributes. Moreover, previous researcher
had predicted that there is a possibility that future technology
adoption decision will be more concern on human nature
compared to usefulness factors. As such this paper proposed to
investigate the effect of personality traits in encouraging the
continued use of the e-filing system in Malaysia.
