The Ins and Outs of Personality: What Traits, Reputations, and Identities
Tell Us About Performance

The discrepancies between how we see ourselves and how others see us offer a fascinating, insightful, and important glimpse of who a person is and how their life will unfold.  In this talk, I present theory and data about how traits, reputations (the impression we leave on others), and identity (the self that only we perceive) set us up for success in school, performance at work, and our ability to get along with others.  This richer conceptualization of personality offers great potential to choose the best applicants in selection and admissions contexts and for developing incumbent employees’ self-awareness.
