Abstract

The study examined the influence of personality and gender on the perception of organizational politics. Three hundred and seventy two (academic and nonacademic) staff of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife filled two psychological instruments: the Big Five Inventory (BFI) and Perception of Organizational Politics Scale (POPS). Data were analysed with 2-Way ANOVA. The result revealed a non significant influence of gender on perception of organizational politics (F {1, 362} = 0.071, > .05) but a significant influence of personality on perception of organizational politics (F {1, 362} = 37.76, < .05). The study concluded that workers were generally aware of the use of various forms of influence and power processes in their workplace. This awareness is greatly influenced by personality and the gender of the perceiver does not matter.
