170-1 Political Skill on the Perceived Victimization–Performance Relationship: Constructive Replication

It is theorized and tested that a negative social exchange process explains the link between perceived victimization in the work environment and job performance, and that political skills plays an important role as a critical moderator. Three constructive studies confirm the hypotheses of this study.

170-2 Negative Affect and Counterproductive Work Behavior: Roles of Arousal Level

This study inquires into the roles of negative affect in predicting counterproductive work behavior (CWB) targeting either individuals (CWBI) or an organization (CWBO). Through the application of a circumplex model of affect, findings support that high and low arousal negative affect are positively associated with CWBI and CWBO, respectively.

The relationships among income, personality (core self-evaluations), and subjective economic well-being (SEWB) were examined. We find genes and unique environmental factors explain the relationship between personality and SEWB for men and women. Income and SEWB are related only for men; this relationship is due purely to overlapping unique environmental factors.

170-24 Employee Displays and Customer Disposition: Predicting Customer Satisfaction and Tips

Although service with a smile garners customer satisfaction, it is unclear whether customers influence their own satisfaction. Restaurant customers surveyed following a dining experience reported more satisfaction with friendly servers and gave higher tips when satisfied with the service encounter. Customer Agreeableness predicted satisfaction, whereas negative affect negatively impacted tips.

The study compares the validities of political skill (PS) and emotion regulation ability (ERA) in the prediction of job performance. We proposed that PS’s predictability of job performance becomes stronger as enterprising job demands increase and that such predictability is stronger than ERA. Both hypotheses were supported.

170-29 The Costs of Mistaking E-Mail for Easy Mail

E-mail is a predominant organizational communication medium but is particularly susceptible to conflict. Using an experimental design (N = 475), we tested existing theory and found that diminished feedback, lengthier e-mails, and excess attention elicited unfavorable responses. Facets of the viewer’s personality (Agreeableness, Conscientiousness), however, moderated many of these effects.

Different service recovery scenarios were utilized to understand participants’ reactions on unipolar and bipolar scales. Participants were more likely to exaggerate loyalty and negative word-of-mouth behavior when they were provided a unipolar scale versus a bipolar scale, with satisfaction being unaffected by the type scale used.

Serenity Now! New Perspectives on Stress in the Workplace

Paul Spector, University of South Florida, Facilitator


206-1 The Primary Appraisal Assumption in the Challenge-Hindrance Occupational Stress Framework

This study tested the assumption that certain work stressors are appraised as either challenge or hindrance, and a model is proposed suggesting simultaneous appraisals of stressors can be made. Results showed that stressors could be primarily appraised as challenge or hindrance, but they could also be simultaneously appraised as both.
