In this research, two variables have been tested namely independent variables which comprise of the conscientiousness and agreeableness, and dependent variables, as organizational citizenship behavior. The relational model has been formed and tested consisting of three variables i.e. conscientiousness, agreeableness and organizational citizenship behavior and two moderator I.e. age and gender. The problem explored in this research is whether conscientiousness and agreeableness affects organizational citizenship behavior among teachers in Kota Kinabalu. Three research questions were forwarded for this study. Firstly, what type of personality that can influence organizational citizenship behavior?, secondly, what is the relationship between personality and organizational citizenship behavior? Lastly, what is the role of age and gender in the relationship between personality and organizational citizenship behavior? To answer these research questions, this study has outlined three research objectives.
