Integrating social-cognitive theory and the componential model of creativity, we examined the emergence of efficacy beliefs, individual team member creativity, and team creativity. At the individual level, we found that the componential model of creativity was useful for understanding the antecedents of individual creativity and that creative self-efficacy and teamwork self-efficacy represented two paths through which domain-relevant skills, task motivation, and creativity-relevant processes imp...

Purpose – Individuals normally make fairness judgements when experiencing negative outcomes on an important task, such as finding employment. Fairness is an affect-laden subjective experience. Perceptions of injustice can cause resource depletion in unemployed job seekers, potentially leading to reduced self-regulation. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the role of: first, justice perceptions during a job search and their impact on job search self-efficacy (JSSE); second, the mediating...

The current study investigates job search clarity and its impact on two important job search behaviors: job search intensity and the use of job search strategies. We hypothesize and find that job search clarity is positively related to the use of a focused and exploratory job search strategy, and negatively related to the use of a haphazard strategy. Using insights from goal-setting, control, and goal-systems theory, we critically examine the relationship between job search clarity and intensity...

The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of imposing a time constraint on respondents completing the Big Five personality Inventory (John & Srivastava, 1999) based on a self-regulatory model of response distortion. A completely crossed 2 × 2 experimental design was used in which instructions (neutral standard instruction or a job applicant instruction) and speed (with or without a time limit) were manipulated. While speeding personality tests reduced socially desirable respond...

We examined the effects of warnings and speeding on scale scores and convergent validity of a measure of Conscientiousness in a faking context (N = 329). A completely crossed 2 × 2 experimental design was used in which instructions (no warning or a warning) and speeding (with or without a time limit) were manipulated. No statistically significant effects on scale scores or convergent validity were evidenced for speeding. Warning participants did decrease Conscientiousness scores by almost 1 stan...

Affective events theory is used to examine the relationships between workplace events, affect and the emergence of attitude. We discuss the relationships between relational and transactional contracts, organizational commitment, and trust as a mediator. We propose that organizational commitment is a function of affective and belief antecedents that may influence attitude independently or together.

Whereas most free-riding research has focused on limiting free-riding and on understanding free-riding motives, we were concerned with capturing the psychological processes used by observers to interpret the poor performance behavior of a team member. Using a sample of 268 observers of a simulated team interaction, we found that peer reactions to a poor performance could be explained through attribution theory (AT). Poor performers perceived as possessing high general cognitive ability (g) and l...

This introduction explains why such investigations are important for the development of a theory of the family firm, provides a brief review of the contents and contributions of the articles, and concludes with a call for additional research on how and wh...
