The study examined the influence of personality type (A and B) and work force diversity on ethical behaviour and job satisfaction of a sample of Nigerian police. The sample consisted of one hundred and twenty two policemen and women whose ranks are from Constable to Assistant Superintendent of police in the Irrua Area Command, Edo State, Nigeria. To achieve the objective of the study, four hypotheses were formulated and tested. The data were analysed using the student t-test and multiple regression analysis. The findings of the study revealed that type B persons have higher job satisfaction and are more ethical in behaviour compared to the type A persons. Also, there was a significant joint prediction of age, gender, educational attainment and work experience on job satisfaction and ethical behaviour of the sample. Here, age, gender and work experience have a significant independent contributions to job satisfaction and ethical behaviour. However, the independent contribution of education on job satisfaction and ethical behaviour was non-significant.Based on these findings, it was recommended, among other things that more of type B persons be recruited into the force and efforts should be made to encourage professional ethics in the force. Suggestions were also made and conclusion drawn based on the findings that were discussed.
