Researchers have demonstrated the association between individual personality traits and organizational health outcomes such as burnout. The relationships between personality profiles and these outcomes, however, have received less research attention. The current study applied latent profile analysis (LPA) to investigate personality profiles in two working samples and to examine the relationships between the personality profiles and three organizational outcomes (i.e., counterproductive work behavior, organizational citizenship behavior, and work-related burnout). Three personality profiles, Ordinary, Resilient, and Rigid, consistently emerged in both samples. Individuals with different personality profiles demonstrated meaningful variance in their well-being (i.e., work-related burnout) and behaviors (i.e., counterproductive work behavior and organizational citizenship behavior). The results also highlighted the importance of person-centered approaches when examining the relationships between personality traits and organizational health outcomes.
