personality construct in combination with network analysis to
understand an organization. In my own research into distributed team
interaction, I've found this construct to be very useful in
interpreting team interaction dynamics.
Kilduff, M. and W. Tsai (2003). Social networks and organizations.
In a related note, just fyi, I've also found the International
Personality Item Pool <http://ipip.ori.org/ipip/> invaluable in
constructing surveys to assess personality items in my network
analyses ... invaluable because items provide references to the
literature. That helps me to assess the value of an item with
regards to my research.
