Objectives
To examine the validity of personality measures for predicting behaviors in organizations; to determine if the "frame of reference (FOR) effects" are universally valid or are culture-specific; to extent that personality is used to select and/or modify organizational environments, it is important to see if such contextualizing strategies are productive or even counterproductive in different cultures.
