A contextualized study on the personality-performance link.

Onderzoeksoutput: Meeting abstract (Book)


Although several meta-analyses on the personality-performance link have shown that conscientiousness and emotional stability have the largest effect on performance, their impact is still moderate at best. We argue that this is due to the fact that previous research has neglected the task-dependence of the different constituents. To address this limitation, we shift the attention from personality traits to states. Because task complexity and work pressure have been found to determine how conscientious and emotionally stable one behaves, we study how trait conscientiousness and emotional stability on the one hand and task complexity and work pressure on the other jointly determine state conscientiousness and emotional stability. Subsequently, we investigate how state conscientiousness and emotional stability relate to performance and how task complexity and work pressure moderate this relationship. By doing so, we contribute to a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying the personality-performance link.
