The social characteristics of students have in recent studies shown to be highly influential in their learning and achievement (academic and non-academic). Of the many characteristics, proactivity has been seen to be an essential attribute for success in areas such as workforce, health and education sectors. This research paper considers the possible association between proactivity and gender. Three measures of proactivity namely proactive personality, proactive confidence and proactive behaviour were used. The analytics and tests showed that the proactivity levels do not differ between genders, at least in the unique settings of South Pacific. The results were attributed to the Pacific way of life and the unique culture and tradition of the South Pacific region.
