How does personality impact your role, team, and organizational fit

Personality Fit

Although understanding ourselves through the lens of personality can seem unnecessary or “just for fun”, it offers self-awareness akin to turning on a light in a dark room.

In the context of the workplace, personality facets related to the Big 5 have been suggested to influence an individual's satisfaction, perceived organizational fit (Judge and Cable 1997), interview outcomes (Caldwell & Burger, 1998), and, in some cases, overall performance within an organization. (Hogan & Holland, 2003).

The Big Five personality traits, also known as the five-factor model (FFM), is a widely examined theory of five broad dimensions often used by psychologists to describe the human personality and psyche. The five factors have been defined as Openness to experience, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. Acronyms to aid in remembering the five traits include OCEAN and CANOE. Beneath each global factor, a number of correlated and more specific primary factors are examined. For example, extraversion includes related qualities such as gregariousness, assertiveness, excitement seeking, warmth, activity, and positive emotions.
