Recent research suggests that forced-choice personality measures are more resistant to faking than Likert-type measures. This study examined practical issues associated with the use of forced-choice measures, focusing on faking, criterion-related validity, and test-taker reactions. Results indicated forced-choice measures demonstrate incremental validity over cognitive ability and produce limited negative reactions.

136-13. The Role of SES in the Ability Performance Relationship

This paper examines the relationship between socioeconomic status, ability tests, and their joint relationship with subsequent performance using the data from a variety of national longitudinal samples. In general, the evidence presented supports our hypothesis that the predictive power of standardized tests is not appreciably reduced when SES is controlled.

166-19. Collective Efficacy Formation: A Field Study in China

We investigated how collective efficacy is formed. Results point to the mediating role of interpersonal group trust in the relationships between the 4 main antecedents of collective efficacy (i.e., past performance, vicarious learning, social persuasion, and group affect) and collective efficacy. We conclude with implications for future research.

166-20. Effects of Emotional Stability and Feedback on Work Group Performance

The objective performance of small decision-making groups was significantly influenced by performance feedback. The impact of feedback on group performance, however, was moderated by the groups level of emotional stability. Groups low in emotional stability made poorer decisions after receiving performance feedback compared to groups high in emotional stability.

We coded open-ended statements concerning what individuals envision as qualities in an ideal mentor and looked at differences depending on ethnicity and gender. We discuss the importance of investigating the specific expectations people have regarding the physical image of their mentors and how question wording can impact stated demographic preferences.

Ninety-nine teams participated in a 16-week long virtual team simulation as part of a required business core course. Team-level multiple-perspective taking was related to team-member exchange (TMX). TMX was related to peer performance evaluations, satisfaction with the virtual experience, and likelihood of recommending the experience to others.

The current study examined the effects of leadership and peer evaluations on virtual team performance. Although there were no leadership effects on performance, there was a positive relationship between peer evaluations and performance. Also, our results further suggest that peer evaluations did reflect contributions made to the team.

Gender as a team composition variable has received sparse attention (Stephenson, 1994). We elucidate the complicated nature of gender composition as an influence on computer-based task performance. Results indicated that the assumption of the superior performance of matched gender teams is likely attributable to the matching of male/male teams only.

To evaluate the impact of critical thinking training on virtual teams, 67 teams were randomly assigned to conditions, crossing training type (critical thinking or control) and critical thinking probes (none, during planning stage, during task). Results indicate that team-level (probes) and individual-level (intelligence) factors influenced performance on a computer-mediated task.

We surveyed 198 undergraduate students about their tendency to engage in unethical behaviors and their perceptions others engaged in such behaviors. Results suggest emotional intelligence predicts self-ethics and other-ethics perceptions. EI explained significant incremental variance in other-ethics perceptions, over that explained by self-ethics. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
