Material type: ArticleArticleDescription: 111-117 str.Subject(s): Implicit aggression; Dispositional self-control; Counter productive work behaviors; The Conditional Reasoning Test for Aggression In: Personality and individual differences 104 (2017) ; str. 111-117Abstract: Implicit component of aggression as a personality trait seems to be important for understanding aggressive be-havior in different life domains, including counterproductive work behaviors (CWBs). However, the expressionof aggressive urges might depend on the level of self-control an individual possesses. In this paper we reportthe results of 2 studies that tested the interaction between implicit aggression, as measured with the ConditionalReasoning Test for Aggression (CRT-A), and dispositional self-control (DSC) in explaining counterproductivework behaviors (CWBs). In Study 1, 333 employees completed a study package consisting of the CRT-A, a DSCscale, and a CWB scale. In Study 2, an additional sample of employees (n= 341) completed a research batteryconsisting of the CRT-A, another DSC scale, and another CWB instrument. Additionally, in Study 2 we collectedratings about the participants' DSC and CWBs from their coworkers. The moderation analyses confirmed thathigh DSC buffers the effect of implicit aggression on self-reported CWBs in both studies, irrespective of whetherself-control was self- or other-reported. However, the moderation effect was nonsignificant when other-reportsof CWBs were used as the criteria.
