The traditional study of personality focuses on the structure of personality and its origins (Allport, 1937; Murphy, 1932). However, an important reason to examine personality is to understand how it influences people’s daily lives in meaningful and predictable ways (Shiner & Masten, 2012). For example, personality is associated with individual outcomes such as physical health, happiness and identity; interpersonal outcomes including romantic relations (e.g., to whom individuals are attracted; Ozer & Benet-Martinez, 2006), martial satisfaction, martial success and parenting; and social outcomes such as occupational choice, community involvement and political affiliation (Ozer & Benet-Martinez, 2006). Personality also impacts the perception of received social support and actively seeking social support (Lakey et al., 2010). Although social behavior is often shaped by the dispositions and perceptions of the individuals involved in the interactions (Elster, 2015), social relationships also profoundly affect personality (Back et al., 2011).
