The present study examined whether disagreement between self-, other-, and metaperceptionsof personality was related to burnout and eudaimonic workplace wellbeing.We expected disagreement in personality perceptions to explain incrementalvariance in burnout and eudaimonic workplace well-being beyond the main effects ofthe different personality ratings. Participants were 459 Dutch employees and their 906colleagues (who provided other ratings of personality). The results, based on polynomial regression with response surface analyses, highlighted strong main effects of self‐rated personality traits in relation to burnout and eudaimonic workplace wellbeing. This study provides, as far as we know, the first empirical evidence that selfrated Honesty‐Humility negatively predicts burnout. Results showed little evidence on incremental effects of disagreement between personality perceptions, with one clear exception: when meta- and other-perceptions of Honesty-Humility became increasingly discrepant, burnout increased and eudaimonic workplace well-being decreased. This finding demonstrates the added value of insight into how someone thinks he or she is viewed by others on Honesty-Humility and the extent to which this corresponds to other-perceptions.
