We examined personality similarity of male and female executives. Both male and female executives generally demonstrate an archetypical “leader personality” focused on assertiveness, high-level strategic thinking, and decisiveness, with this pattern more pronounced among women.

Employee ethical behaviors are a critical criterion for organizations seeking to implement socially responsible, ethical business practices. In this article, we present a critical review of theoretical conceptualizations, taxonomies, and assessment of employee (un)ethical behaviors.

Effect size variability in meta-analyses is often overlooked or misinterpreted. We describe two methods for making practical interpretations of credibility intervals and determining whether a particular SDρ represents a meaningful level of variability.

We present and provide support for a theoretical framework conceptualizing negative commuting-health relations as a stress-strain process. Stress strongly accounts for commuting-health relations, particularly among parents. We discuss implications for commuting research and interventions.

We present a meta-analysis of demographic differences in protean, boundaryless, and proactive career orientations. We find that demographic differences are generally negligible to small. Age shows curvilinear relations with new career orientations.

We report meta-analyses of Big Five personality-job performance research conducted in South Africa. Results showed that the Big Five traits have similar validity for job performance as found in other cultural contexts.

Increased conceptual clarity and methodological rigor is needed in personality-outcome research. We describe the hierarchical nature of personality and the impact of multiple traits and errors on score interpretation.

We examine the relation between employee age and green behavior in a meta-analysis of samples from 11 countries. Age shows small positive relations with some forms of employee green behavior.

Failure to properly model dominant general factors in data analysis can have dramatic impacts on observed results. We review the shortcomings of common analytic and provide recommendations for future studies.

I examine the relations between intraindividual configurations of Big Five personality traits and Realistic vocational interests in 20 samples. Strengths for Openness to Intellect consistently predicted Realistic interests.
