The purpose of this study was to examine the moderator role of employees’/ teachers’ personality factors between leader behaviour perceptions and dimensions of organizational identity. A total of 180 teachers including 104 females and 76 males were recruited from 6 different schools in Bolu. Data were collected by the Leader Behaviour Scale the Turkish Big Five Personality Scale and the Multi Faced Organizational Identifi cation Scale. Findings of this study showed that leader behaviour perceptions did not predict affective occupational identity. On the other hand, hierarchical and task oriented leader behaviour and following and controlling leader behaviour perceptions predicted team identity. The results revealed that extraversion had a moderator role in the relationship between team constructed and sharing, hierarchical and task oriented, and paternal leader behaviour perceptions and affective occupational identity. On the other hand, agreeableness had a moderator role in relationship between the team constructed and sharing, hierarchical and task oriented and following and controlling leader behaviour perceptions and team identity. At the end of the study, it can be interpreted that except the situation in organization, personality factors of employees may make clear the different foci of organizational identity and affect the identifi cation with different identifi cation dimensions. For example, as extraversion refi nes occupational focus of identifi cation, agreeableness refi nes team focus of identifi cation.
