The first chapter provides foundational knowledge about the conceptualization of personality at work. In particular, it discusses the trait-perspective of personality and reviews personality research in the work context. It also discusses practical implications, highlighting how the knowledge of personality traits has been used to inform personnel decisions and practices. It concludes with an overview of the rest of the chapters in this book. The first chapter is intentionally kept very brief so that more focus of the book is dedicated to the change perspective of personality.
