Provide a brief description of these variables/factors. Variables and/or factors should be directly supported by the Learning Resources.

P-E fit refers to the similarity or congruence between a person’s values or personality and his or her work environment. For example, a high-stress job as a day trader on Wall Street might be a poor P-E fit for a quiet or shy person. Good and poor P-E fit can have specific positive and negative consequences for employees in areas such as satisfaction, commitment, stress, adjustment, and withdrawal. As a result, P-E fit also can have positive and negative consequences for employers and organizations.

In this Discussion, you will examine factors signifying poor P-E fit and the consequences that can occur.
