The aim of this study is to investigate and highlight the relationship between personality traits, intelligence and managerial level in a multinational company of online market research. Personality traits were assessed by using the Romanian versions of Freiburg Personality Inventory (FPI G), NEO PI R questionnaire, Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and KIRTON questionnaire for cognitive style (KAI ). Intelligence was assessed by using the Romanian version of Multidimensional Aptitude Battery MAB-II (Jackson, 2008). The dependent variable was the level of the manager in the organization (1- top management, 2 - middle management, 3- low management). The inclusion criteria in the three managerial groups (top, middle and low) were the measures of managerial complexity derived through the position in organizational chart, the reported distance from the General Manager, and the number of subordinates. Data were collected from the managers working in a company of online market research. Results shown that some personality traits and some measures of intelligence (those linked with the competence of learning) varied significantly across the three groups of managers.
