This study explored the value of using Holland's theory of vocational personality types and work environments for improving predictions of personality performance relations, Upper level undergraduates representing the RIASEC environments completed the Self-Directed Search and a measure of the Five-Factor Model of personality that A ere used to predict grades. Overall. agreeableness and conscientiousness accounted for approximately 2% to 3% of the variance in performance. However, when the data were analyzed further by RIASEC environment. more than 9% of the variance in performance was accounted for with personality scores. This study supports assertion, in the literature that predictions of performance using global traits, such as conscientiousness. can he improved using appropriate moderators, Furthermore, important relations between personality and performance can be masked if job context is ignored.
