Conscientiousness is typically seen as a positive or desired personality trait in the workplace, with the overall assumption being "the more, the better". Drawing on the behavioral concordance model, we challenge this assumption, expecting that the highest level of positive affect and the lowest level of negative affect will correspond at the point...
Article
Research shows that extraversion is unrelated to performance approach goal orientation, both at the trait- and the state-level. However, since previous studies have either focused on the trait- or the state-level, such a conclusion may be premature. Building upon the idea that acting against one’s trait consumes self-control resources, we reason th...

We depict the physical and psychological challenges of commercial fishing in Alaska as well as the uplifts, or positive experiences fishermen report. We describe an array of coping methods that are utilized during the fishing season and the contexts in which they occur. Our findings help clarify the link between human behavior, stressors, coping me...

Although previous research has shown that both trait and state conscientiousness are positively associated with a wide range of positive life and work outcomes, some studies indicate that acting in a conscientious way is effortful, and that behaving outside one’s conscientiousness related comfort zone (i.e., acting counterhabitual) may lead to cogn...

The idea that increased levels of extraversion are beneficial to well-being is widespread. Drawing on the idea that behaving discordant to one’s trait level is demanding and effortful to maintain, and that repeated taxations of one’s self-regulatory resources are unpleasant, we examined the relationship between cumulative counterdispositional extra...

Orientation: The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has caused a ‘coronafication’ of research and academia, including the instrumentalisation of academic research towards the demands of society and governments. Whilst an enormous number of special issues and articles are devoted on the topic, there are few fundamental reflections on how t...

Employee silence, the withholding of work-related ideas, questions, or concerns from someone who could effect change, has been proposed to hamper individual and collective learning as well as the detection of errors and unethical behaviors in many areas of the world. To facilitate cross-cultural research, we validated an instrument measuring four e...

This presentation will share the results of a survey that aimed at understanding the impact of COVID-19 on the Antarctic research community. Primarily designed to identify the most adversely affected Antarctic researchers and gauge what kind of assistance they might need, the survey, which forms part of an interdisciplinary international research p...
Article
There are two contrasting perspectives on the effects of state extraversion. One states that people benefit from behaving extraverted, regardless of their level of trait extraversion. The second entails that behaving concordant to one’s trait is natural while deviations from the trait level— counterdispositional behaviors—are effortful to maintain,...
Research
Research shows that conscientiousness relates positively to positive affect and negatively to negative affect, at the between- and within-person level. However, these studies have focused upon either between- or within-person differences, without integrating the two dynamic approaches of personality. Building upon the Behavioral Concordance Model (...

Personality is seen as stable differences in an individual's pattern of behaviors, thoughts and emotions. However, individuals differ in their thoughts, feelings and behaviors, not only in predictable ways but also in how they respond to situations. The goal of this research is to integrate between-person personality stability with the dynamic within-person personality fluctuations, focusing on what those fluctuations mean for employee wellbeing.

Now is the time to think about the future of Work and Organizational Psychology (WOP). Many scholars have ideals, thoughts, frustrations, ideas, wishes, and feelings about how the field should develop, change, or pursue another path. It is important to bring together our voices, give the opportunity to have them heard, and jointly work on shaping the future of WOP. This project will collect many ideas (amongst others as expressed during the last EAWOP conference in Dublin) about how we could change, and also forms a platform to connect and actively shape that future.
