The innovative paired sample is composed of both, 189 outstanding employees and their supervisors, and a common employee (182) control group. Findings show that agreeableness and extraversion are significantly correlated to contextual behavior. The present paper contribution is that it enlightens for the first time the relationship the above-mentioned performance. This in turn can be employed as an assessment tool which can assist Human Resources Units in obtaining strategic knowledge of its employees for proactive management of their innovative knowledge assets, for better systematic management of organizational knowledge.
