Abstract

Recent research linking individuals’ personality characteristics to their social networks has brought new understanding of how individual patterns of behavior affect networks in organizations. This review summarizes the major advancements in three areas of social network research relevant to organizational behavior: (a) brokerage and structural holes, (b) network centrality and network size, and (c) strength of ties. This review also provides an agenda outlining three key opportunities for future research. These opportunities involve personality and social network change, bidirectional and dyadic processes, and the potential effect of network position on personality expression.
