The past and future of personality utility: improving predictive ability through item-based precision and factor interdependence

By Henry Moon and Ephrat Livne


This essay reflects upon the past and present state of affairs regarding the influence that personality constructs have on predicting organizational outcomes of interest. The authors contend that the explanatory power of personality constructs has not reached its full potential. In order to maximize the utility of personality as a predictor of various behaviors, a research agenda must emerge to increase the precision of measurement at the item level. Additionally, programs of research that embrace the interdependence of personality constructs within an individual should be undertaken
