Abstract

Using polynomial regression and response surface modeling in a lagged field
study, we examine relationships among leader and follower extraversion fit
and follower ratings of transformational leadership. This paper builds on
prior research investigating the influence that leader and follower personality
factors have on follower perceptions of leadership. Data from a sample of
117 Naval Midshipmen dyads suggest that leader-follower extraversion
congruence at Time 1 was positively related to higher follower ratings of
transformational leadership at Time 2. The implications of these findings are
discussed with respect to perceptions and attributions of leadership, the
potential role that extraversion congruence may play in the development of
leader-follower relationships, and the role of personality across different fit
contexts.
