Abstract:There has been much debate about the appropriate level of specificity at which to measure personality, but no consensus has been reached regarding the usefulness of facet-level Emotional Stability in predicting job performance. Research in this area has been impeded by the lack of an agreed upon facet structure for Emotional Stability. In the current article, the authors used a three facet-structure for Emotional Stability (Well-Being, No Anxiety, and Even Temperedness) to conduct a series of meta-analyses to determine if facet-level Emotional Stability is useful in predicting different types of job performance (overall performance, task performance, contextual performance, and counterproductive work behavior (CWB)). It was found that facet-level Emotional Stability explained additional variance beyond global Emotional Stability for task performance and CWB. The moderating effects of job complexity were also examined.
