Scholars of psychology, of business or management, and of both synthesize research findings from the past decade in the broad domains of industrial and organizational psychology and organizational behavior. After introducing the field, they cover persistent conceptual and methodological issues in personality assessment, and the role of personality in work and well-being and in understanding micro-organizational and meso-organizational processes. Among specific topics are the implications of impression management for personality research in organizations, personality and work-related distress, leadership, and citizenship behavior in organizations.
