You personality traits will drive your response to the work environment. For example a person who cannot tolerate sitting around with nothing to do will be more attentive to lots of things that might not seem important to other workers. For example, workers in a restaurant might consider downtime an opportunity to relax. While other workers might see that as an opportunity to clean up.That is based upon personality.

I agree that a person will have a strong or weak work ethic regardless of their environment, but to a certain extent. I think when a person is in a work environment where they are doing something that they love and the job is rewarding to them, they will be more motivated to work even harder and smarter than in a job that was just a temporary means of making money.

I do not really agree.  A person who has strong work habits will work hard regardless of the work environment.  It may be true that even such a person would work harder in a work environment that suits them.  However, a person with a good work ethic works hard even in a job that they do not like.

I think it's a combination of both.  Some people will work the same way no matter what, but others will be influenced to work harder or less hard depending on the environment.  I should say most people.  Not fitting into the organization's culture is difficult, and most people can't sustain it.
