题   目: The Misfit Hypothesis: Brokerage, Personality Change, and Performance

主讲人:Professor Stefano Tasselli

              Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University

主持人:陈鸿志 副教授

摘   要:

Burgeoning research has studied the role of personality in explaining the extent to which people occupy and benefit from the occupation of brokerage roles. Personality has predicted social structure. But no research has considered personality change as a possible outcome of misfit between personality and occupation of a brokerage role. Does personality change over time because people occupy a brokerage role? Does network structure explain individual performance in organizations because it leads to a change in people’s personalities? We answer these questions with data from four empirical studies measuring personality as extraversion, openness to experience, self-monitoring, and personal constructs. We found consistent evidence that people who exhibit a misfit between their baseline personalities and the occupation of brokerage roles are likely to change their personalities over time to accommodate role demands. We also found that personality change mediates the link between brokerage and performance. This multitude of findings – across different personality approaches, measurements of brokerage, and different organizational settings – opens new directions for the ongoing personality and network position research program, and provides novel insights into personality change.
