278-1 Justice and OCB: Do Emotions and Self-Esteem Matter?

A survey study investigates the moderation role of trait anger and self-esteem (implicit and explicit) in regards to the relationship between justice and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB). Results support 3-way interactions that show patterns consistent with self-verification and self-enhancement theory. The effect of justice on implicit processing is also addressed.

278-2 A Multifoci Integration of Justice, Commitment, and Positive Affective Well-Being

We integrated the constructs of justice, commitment, and well-being using a multi-foci framework. Justice perceptions of a source (organization, supervisor, coworkers) generally predicted affective commitment toward the source. Organizational commitment mediated the relationships between distributive and procedural justice and well-being. Distributive and supervisor informational justice also directly predicted well-being.

Self Regulation and Performance: Just Control Yourself

John Donovan, Rider University, Facilitator

311-1 Values in Motivation: Support for a Self-Regulatory Approach

The literature surrounding motivation is often criticized for the abundance of perspectives. We use a common framework for understanding motivation theory, the content-process approach, to expose commonalities surrounding the values construct in motivation. These commonalties provide support for an integrative theory of values based on control theory.

311-2 Self-Regulation of Goals and Performance: Effects of Discrepancy Feedback

This laboratory study examines the effects of discrepancy feedback on personal goal-revision processes. The results demonstrated that discrepancy information is a strong and independent predictor of goal revision across multiple trials. Self-efficacy also predicted goal revision, and a GPD x self-efficacy interaction was found. Implications are discussed.

311-3 Interactive Effects of Regulatory Fit and Goal Characteristics on Performance

The purpose of this study was to integrate stop rules and goal-setting research to provide a more complete view of the influences on task persistence and performance. We show that goal characteristics (specificity, difficulty) interact with feelings from regulatory fit/nonfit to impact target task persistence and performance.

311-4 Trait-Like Goal Orientation, Self-Regulation, and Performance: A Meta-Analysis

Existing research on trait-like goal orientation was meta-analyzed to identify and examine relationships with self-regulation as well as ability and performance. As expected, some of the largest positive relationships were with self-regulatory processes and mastery goal orientation rather than performance, performance-approach, or performance-avoid goal orientations.
