It’s so obvious that beyond in all social entities, politics are peculiar to organizations as well. Within the concept of individuals’ personality diversity in organizations, the individual and contextual differences in political behaviors highly depend on the perception of power and politics of the employees in organizations. In addition, organizations simply operate by distributing authority and roles and creating a stage for the exercise of power so employees are usually eager to secure and use power to seek a familiar and hospitable environment in organizations. Since power is a basic force of human interaction and individuals come to work with various goals, it’s so common that these goals end up with conflicts and competition among employees because of the expenditure or distribution of scarce resources in organizations. It’s obvious that politics are at the core of public life and so in organizations. As a result, the existence and the various types of politics and power are endemic to organizations.
