The Effect of Personality Traits on User Continuance Usage Intention of e-Filing System

T. Santhanamery and T. Ramayah

Abstract—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.

Index Terms—Personality, technology adoption, continuance usage intention, e-filing system.
