Description

The purpose of the research was to: I) compare the personality traits of obstetricians and gynecologists with those of the general population and II) examine the relationship between obstetricians' and gynecologists’ personality traits, cognitive ability, clinical experience, sex and three decision-making styles (Individual, Team and Flow) during obstetric emergencies

The data sheet is comprised of the answers (n = 472, corresponding to a 22% answering rate) to an online questionnaire that was sent out to obstetricians and gynaecologists, members of the Swedish Society for Obstetrics and Gynaecology. The questionnaire included a simplified version of the Five Factor Model questionnaire (IPIP-NEO-30), a spatial ability test (ICAR) and 15 general questions about decision-making during obstetric emergencies relating to three decision-making styles (Individual, Team and Flow).
