This volume is the first to incorporate the interests of applied psychologists and industrial/organizational psychologists in one source. Personality psychologists are introduced to the preoccupations that I/O psychologists have with personality while I/O psychologists are exposed to the contributions that personality psychology can make to their research. This unique sourcebook should provide inspiration for a broad audience of researchers, practitioners, and graduate students.
