    Absolutely agree with your points about personality but there is also a third reason they may get fired. Sometimes people perform well in interviews and manage to hide some of their personality traits, they continue to try their best for their probation period to keep up what is expected but eventually their real personality comes through and, sadly, they find 6-12 months later the company/team/colleagues they work with are unable to accommodate their personality quirks any longer.
