Despite the enormous growth of research on personality due to the development of the Big Five model, there is still much to be learned about the relation of personality to personal and organizational outcomes. An area requiring attention is the incorporation of situational variables into empirical models to enhance the predictive capacity of personality in explaining outcomes. This study fills this gap by exploring the joint effects of the Big Five personality dimensions and contextual factors (job scope, social aspects of job, and justice perceptions) on a variety of personal and organizational outcomes. The results support many hypotheses suggesting the moderating role of job scope in personality-outcomes relationships. Job scope moderated the relationship between various Big Five traits and job satisfaction, job stress, job performance, and creativity. Similarly, distributive justice and voice had joint effects with personality on citizenship behaviors.
