Other AbstractChinese personality traits have unique differences from other cultures due to China's special geography and collectivist cultural background. Therefore, the philosophy of localization was accepted and advocated by more and more Chinese psychologists. Meanwhile, the nonlinear relationships between personality traits and job performance have been found in some studies. These results transformed the traditional top - down strategy into double strategies for the applications of personality tests in the psychology of personnel management. However, there was no research to combine the linear and nonlinear models to examine the relationships between indigenous personality traits and job performance in the Chinese work setting. In the current study, we explored the linear and/or nonlinear reationships between indigenous personality traits and job performance. The participants were 182 service employees from several service industries in Beijing, and the immediate supervisors of the respondents provided ratings of their job performance and returned independently to the interviewers. The ratings of job performance were self - compiled based on job analysis and in - depth interview. Confirmatory factor analysis found that the one - factor performance model had a better fit (χ2 = 27.79, df = 8, CFI = . 95, NF1 = . 93, RMSEA = . 07), and the coefficient alpha was . 85. Meanwhile, the nine subscales from CPAI -2 were selected to assess the indigenous personality traits: face (FAC), family orientation (FAM), defensiveness (DEF), graciousness vs. meanness (G_M), veraciousness vs. slickness (V_S), traditionalism vs. modernity (T_M), renqing (REN), harmony (HAR) and thrift vs. extravagance (T_E). The mean Cronbach's coefficient for the entire set of personality scales was . 70 in the representative normal sample in Chinese mainland and Hong Kong. The data were analyzed with SPSS 15.0, and the main statistical methods were correlation analysis and hierarchical polynomial regression analysis. The results were as follow: (1) HAR and job performance had a positive linear relationship(ilL = . 16, p 〈 . 05 ), the results were similar to the previous studies, and confirmed the importance of harmonious relationship in Chinese culture. (2) FAC and job performance had a reversed - U curve relationship(flQ = -. 22, p 〈 . 05 ) , indicating that compared to those who were low in "lace" scores, those scoring high on "face" tended to do well on the job, and therefore were likely to achieve better performance via their personal efforts to 'save face" through hard work. However, after a certain point (ZrAc = -. 07), excessively avoiding losing face in advance or mending lost face after the fact may no longer be helpful to score favorably on job performance. (3) REN and job performanee had a letter U curve relationship (βQ = . 15, p 〈 . 05 ), indicating that the low and high scores on the renqing scales had a better performance. This is not consistent with our expectation, because of the personality traits and job performance usually showed a reversed - U curve in previous studies. The current results may be due to the special status of renqing in Chinese society. In the end, we pointed out that the results should be repeated in different samples and jobs before generalization can be reached.
