42-4 Managerial Personality Across Europe: Predicting Between-Organization and Between-Country Variation

This study explored the homogeneity hypothesis of personality within organizations and between organizations and between European countries, with multilevel analyses. Consistent with previous literature, the results show significant variance between organizations and partially between countries, however more variance is explained at the individual level. The results suggest that personality has individual-, organizational-, and country-level foundations.

58-1 An Examination of the Trickle-Down Effects of Abusive Supervision

We tested a trickle-down model of abusive behavior across three hierarchical levels (managers, supervisors, employees). We find manager abusive behavior is related to supervisor abusive behavior, which is related to employees’ interpersonal deviance. We also find hostile climate moderates the relationship between abuse and deviance.

81-1 Does Dissimilarity Predict Stereotyping? It Depends on the Context

Numerous studies have examined the effects of demographic dissimilarity on individual outcomes, but none have investigated stereotyping. Results from a national survey indicate that greater residential and workplace racioethnic dissimilarity diminishes racioethnic stereotyping indirectly by promoting greater interracioethnic contact. These results were consistent for absolute and relative stereotyping.

The Importance of Values: Understanding Workplace Diversity and Work–Life Issues

Values are very significant in diversity research because diversity implies a multicultural framework with different cultures possessing different value systems. The authors in this symposium examine how values impact diversity and work–life issues. Findings suggest that values play an important role for both job seekers and job incumbents.

Minimum Standards for Job Analysis: How Little Is Enough?

Job analyses are common in many I-O psychology projects (e.g., validation projects). However, this step in the process is often downplayed and sometimes even ignored. This expert panel discussion will focus on the issue of the minimum level of effort necessary to conduct a legitimate and legally defensible job analysis.

103-1 Influence of Emotions and Emotion Regulation Strategies on Ethical Decision Making

This study examines an impact of regulated versus unregulated discrete negative emotions, specifically anger and fear, on individual ethical decision making. Inhibitory anger effects were decreased with the help of any regulation strategy, in particular cognitive reappraisal. On the contrary, fear facilitated ethical decision-making with the help of relaxation.

103-4 A Meta-Analytic Comparison of Relative Black–White Cognitive Ability Test Validity

Many have largely dismissed differential validity but we argue that this dismissal was premature. We meta-analytically examined differences between Blacks and Whites in the relationship between cognitive ability tests and performance across employment, educational, and military settings. Black criterion-related validity was lower within and across all 3 settings.

103-5 Gender Diversity and Creativity: The Moderating Role of Group LMX

We propose that group-level LMX (group mean and SD) moderates the relationship between gender diversity and information elaboration and that information elaboration fully mediates the relationship between the interaction of gender diversity and group LMX. Our results largely support our hypotheses. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.

103-7 Psychological Ownership and Its Effects on the Adoption of Change

We examined the possibility that psychological ownership over ideas will both foster and impede the adoption of change depending upon whether this change is additive or subtractive. Results of our experiment supported this logic and showed that identification mediated the effects of ownership on the adoption of subtractive change.

103-8 The Job Satisfaction–Performance Relationship: An Integrated Model With Common Causes

Research suggests the job satisfaction–job performance relationship is partly spurious or attributable to common causes. This meta-analysis estimates the residual satisfaction–performance correlation at .16, after controlling personality, job complexity, and cognitive ability. We then advance an integrated theoretical model of satisfaction, performance, and their most widely studied antecedents.

Using 186 dyads, this study investigated the influence of spousal commitment to the military on members’ organizational commitment and decision to re-enlist. Results indicate that even after controlling for direct persuasion techniques, indirect crossover mechanisms (i.e., positive emotional displays) facilitated the transfer of organizational commitment from spouse to member.

This study examines the effects of employee self-enhancement motives on organizational citizenship behaviors (OCB). The results indicate that self-enhancement motives have positive effects on OCBs. Moreover, it is moderated by leader–member exchange (LMX). That is, employees display OCBs to enhance their self-image, especially when they have low LMX with their supervisors.

103-13 Analytic-Holistic Thinking, Information Use, and Sensemaking During Unfolding Events

Individuals must identify needed information, make sense of complex situations, and make critical decisions for organizations. We found that Analytic and Holistic thinkers differ in their use of information and in their subsequent sensemaking decision. As information accumulates over time, sensemaking decisions showed dynamic and complex pattern changes.

This study compared and integrated 3 influential motivational frameworks in explaining young professionals’ job search. The theory of planned behavior (TPB) was found to predict the participants’ (N = 297) job search better than expectancy-value theory (EVT) and self-determination theory (SDT). Relationships of EVT- and SDT variables with job search were largely mediated by the TPB variables.

103-17 Supervisors’ Abuse of Customers: The Moderating Role of Moral Obligation

Drawing on deontic justice (Folger, 1998, 2001), results from 138 employee–supervisor dyads suggest that supervisor customer abuse is negatively related to employees’ interpersonal justice and commitment, and positively related to turnover intentions and deviance. Further, employees have stronger reactions when they believe supervisors have a moral obligation to behave fairly.
