MANAGERS' PERSONALITIES AND THEIR LEADERSHIP PERCEPTIONS
Abstract:This study investigated relationships between managers' personalities and their leadership perceptions. Data describe 94 managers in one company and another 61 managers working in diverse organizations. Personality variables measure rigidity, intolerance of ambiguity, and locus of control. Leadership variables measure initiating structure, consideration, and least preferred co-worker. Only two of the twenty-four differences between means exhibited statistical significance, which provides very little support for the hypothesis that managers' personalities are significantly related with their leadership perceptions.
