Discussion 2: dispositional versus situational factors and job

Individuals have a variety of personality traits, values, and attitudes that they bring with them into the workplace. These characteristics, whether stable or transient, are termed dispositional factors. Because dispositional factors can be useful in predicting individual behavior and performance across diverse situations, organizations value this information when hiring, developing, and promoting employees.

The concepts of personal dispositions often are referred to interchangeably in the literature as traits, personality, and individual characteristics. Job attitudes research commonly uses situational variables (e.g., pay, work environment, task characteristics) as well as dispositional variables (e.g., conscientiousness, neuroticism) as determinants of job attitudes. 

In this Discussion, you will take a position on whether job attitudes are influenced more by situational or dispositions variables. You will also explore how certain aspects such as gender, age, industry, or employee educational level might also play a mediating role.
