Abstract

This field study investigated the effects of negative affectivity (NA) on perceptions of pay, supervision, and job characteristic equity. Previous works have suggested that high NA individuals tend to perceive themselves and the world around them negatively and distort ambiguous information to fit a negative schema. The sample consisted of 102 managers of a large automobile distributorship. Results indicated that negative affectivity significantly lowered perceptions of pay, supervision and job characteristic equity. Implications of these findings from theoretical and managerial perspectives as well as avenues for future research in this area are provided.
