Corruption of personality refers to a set of psychological mechanisms working both at the individual and at the community level which might explain why some individuals are more prone to get engaged in corruption practices. The reasons why people engage in corruption activities might be either personal or society-embedded or a combination of the two, in different proportions. Individual personality traits (i.e., based on the Five-Factor Model of personality) might offer some insights into the reasons why some people are more inclined to engage in a certain type of corrupt behavior – either in an interpersonal relationship or in a work-related one. Kinship associations, gender, individual ability to reject bribe, the degree of happiness and content with the self, the attitude towards power are among the other individual factors often regarded as predictors of engagement in corruption acts. Nevertheless, it is important to mention that, besides these individual characteristics, there are some national-level characteristics, often embedded in a long historical tradition/ culture, which might shape people’s behavior in this sense (i.e., the type of organizational culture).
