The article focuses on contingent beliefs that can predict the within-person variations of personality which affect conscientiousness in the workplace. Evaluation is based three psychological aspects of job performance which are task importance, task difficulty, and task urgency. The research methods used in this study include the experience sampling questionnaire and an analysis of the latent-state conscientiousness construct by hierarchical linear modeling. The author suggests that work behavior is related to personality function.
