Get Smarty Pants: Cognitive Ability, Personality, and Victimization
Kim, Eugene; Glomb, Theresa M.
Journal of Applied Psychology, v95 n5 p889-901 Sep 2010
Drawing on the victim precipitation model, this study provides an empirical investigation of the relationship between cognitive ability and victimization at work. We propose that people high in cognitive ability are more prone to victimization. In this study, we also examine the direct and moderating effects of victims' personality traits, specifically the 2 interpersonally oriented personality dimensions of agency and communion. Results support the direct positive relationship of cognitive ability and victimization. The positive relationship between high cognitive ability and victimization is moderated by the victims' personality traits; agency personality traits strengthen the relationship of cognitive ability and victimization, whereas communion personality traits weaken this relationship. (Contains 2 footnotes, 3 tables, and 2 figures.)
