Concerning the research in organizational contexts, neuroticism is considered in relation to job satisfaction, workaholism, organizational and emotional intelligence, health risks, prevention in organisations, and promotion of workers’ strengths in the first part of the volume. In the second part, they are reflections relative to: physiological correlates of neuroticism, relations between neuroticism and extraversion in different contexts, associations of neuroticism with innovative and adaptive outcomes (for example, flourishing and Intrapreneurial Self-Capital, and career outcomes), and concluding with the importance of continuing to study neuroticism in a cross cultural perspective. The hope is that this book can really help to enhance the study of neuroticism, its characteristics, and the impact it possesses on job performance and health outcomes. The volume constitutes an aid to the valorization and protection of human resources. Its goal is giving a real contribution to favor both the performance and well-being of workers, promoting organizational productivity, business success, well-being and healthy environments in organizations.
