      Regarding personality and network measures, see Mehra, A., Kilduff, M & Brass, D. (2001): The Social Networks of High and Low Self Monitors: Implications for Workplace Performance. Admin Science Quarterly 46, 121-146.  Abstract below:
      Examines how different personality types create and benefit from social networks. Tested how self-monitoring orientation and network position related to work performance. High self monitors were more likely than low self monitors to occupy central positions in a network. For high self monitors, longer service (tenure) related to the occupancy of strategically advantageous network positions. Third, self-monitoring and centrality in social networks independently predicted individual's workplace performance. The results paint a picture of people shaping the networks that constrain and enable performance.

      Ron Burt has done work in this area.

      Also, many people think that Meyers-Briggs type indicators will
      correlate with network position... but no research that I have seen
      shows any positive correlation at all. One of my university clients
      did research in this area and found absolutely NO correlation between
      MBTI and the common centrality measures.
