Purpose: The purpose of study was to explore the effect of five big personality traits on job burnout among special education employees in Multan division.193 employees in which 95 female and 98 male were selected from 32 schools and centers of special education by using convenient sampling method with age range of 24-60 years. Five big personality inventory developed by Finchan and Rhodes (1991), was used to measure personality traits and Maslach burnout inventory (1986) was also used to measure burnout level. Analysis revealed that personality factors leads towards burnout significantly. Five big personality traits are seen at moderate levels independently but burnout shows highly significant level among employees especially in women and contract employees because of not defined task, pay and future programme. Employees scores indicate high level in reduce accomplishment, emotional exhaustion and then depersonalization in sequence. Personality traits for example neuroticism and conscientiousness significantly lead towards burnout because they have to face different critical situations in their institutes than general. But an interesting finding is that females are more extrovert, agreeable, openness to experience and conscientiousness than male employees. Job status and responsibilities are strongly related to burnout experience.
