MetadataShow full item record
This experiment has investigated some effects of supervisors' job insecurity on the way the supervisors behave toward subordinates. Two variations in job security were induced experimentally by varying the subjects' perception of the likelihood of losing their jobs as supervisors. The supervisor has power over another person in this experiment. The power of one individual over another individual is defined as the ability of one person to reward or punish another person in a particular situation.[TRUNCATED]
