A questionnaire study of 129 members of 20 multidisciplinary project teams examined the relationship between informational dissimilarity and both team identification and organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) for individuals working under different interdependence configurations. Results revealed that under congruent low-low and high-high combinations of task and goal interdependence, informational dissimilarity was unrelated to team identification and OCB. By contrast, under incongruent low-high and high-low combinations of task and goal interdependence, informational dissimilarity was negatively related to team identification and OCB. Team identification partially mediated the relationships between the predictors and OCB.
