Thesis Proposal

The following exercise entails the analysis of the personalities of two internationally known leaders with special attention being paid to the way their personal attributes relate to existent theories that elaborate more on this phenomenon.  The two leaders who will be analyzed are Sir Richard Branson, CEO of the Virgin Group and Sir Akbar Al Baker who is the current CEO of Qatar Airways.

The three theories that will be applied to the analysis of these two individuals’ personalities are Allport’s Trait Theory, Eysenck’s personality Theory and Freud’s Tripartite Theory of Personality.

Freud’s Tripartite theory of personality divides an individual’s character traits into three main components namely the id, the ego and thirdly the superego. These develop at different rates and an individual’s overall personality can be defined as one of these depending on the most visible aspect of the person. One will be said to have a Psychotic Psyche, Healthy Psyche or Neurotic Psyche depending on which of the three are most pronounced.

Eysenck’s personality theory on the other hand employs two dimensions namely extroverted and introverted as a means of categorizing the various possible personalities that an individual may present. These are choleric, sanguine, phlegmatic and finally melancholic. Each of these are further divided into tens of smaller sub-categories.

Allport’s Trait Theory analyzes individuals subjectively based on their in-born traits combined with the environmental dynamics that they have been exposed to as they were developing. The theory takes the position that individual personalities are directly impacted by biology and their environmental variables.

The above theories can all be used to analyze the personalities of Sir Branson and Al Baker. This is due to the flexibility and practicality of the above mentioned theories and the information that is available regarding the two international business leaders.

My intended application of the insights

I will apply the insights I get to the different situations that these two leaders have been in specifically at the beginning of their respective careers, when things have been difficult for them and also how they have handled success. Since they are both in the business world, I will also apply the insights I am getting to their impact on the products that the organizations they currently lead supply to the market. Their relationships with different parties is another area where insights can be applied. These parties include their superiors where applicable, their subordinates, their competitors and also their customers.

With respect to my working situation of being a pilot, I will apply these insights to the ambitions I hold for myself in this profession, the working relationship I have with those around me and how I measure up against the recommended standards. I will also consider the motivation that I have as a pilot and what impact this has on my leadership if any.
