Dr Nadin Beckmann (School of Education, Durham University): The lost individual: Integrating the study of within- and between-person variability in personality at work
Research on personality in the workplace has primarily focussed on differences between individuals in their typical thoughts, feelings and behaviours as represented in the five-factor model of personality (McCrae & Costa, 1999), and the relation of these to work outcomes (Barrick, Mount, & Judge, 2001). However, a within-person conceptualization of personality offers additional meaningful insights into the role of personality in general and at work in particular.
In this talk I will present a multi-level framework that integrates between- and within-person approaches to the study of personality. I will outline some questions of interest that arise within this approach, provide examples from the literature and present two studies to illustrate each question and highlight future research directions.
