  • Abstract:

    The study examined the association between gender, self-efficacy, extroversion and attitudes toward knowledge sharing among 157 male and 135 female senior administrators in a Nigerian university. A cross-sectional quantitative survey was used to collect data on self-efficacy, extroversion and attitudes toward knowledge sharing. The results show that there was a significant main influence of self-efficacy p< .001, extroversion p< .041 and gender p< .033 on attitudes toward knowledge sharing. The results imply that these factors are associated with attitudes toward knowledge sharing of senior administrators. Development workshops to improve social skills, belief about capabilities and management trainings on how to be a team player will prove helpful to human resource practitioners interested in developing more favourable attitudes toward knowledge sharing among male and female senior administrators.
