Article
Based on a posttest-only control group design, we analyzed the efficiency of three group-level interventions (i.e., cognitive reframing, mood induction, and instrumental interventions) on the fairness perceptions of 198 participants in an assessment context. Each intervention was derived from a conceptual framework (Gilliland’s theory, Cognitive-Be...
Article
This study investigates the vulnerability/protection effects of the Big Five personality traits (extraversion, openness, agreeability, conscientiousness, neuroticism) on the relationship between bullying and turnover intention. Specifically, based on the assumption of Vulnerability-Stress Model we propose that bullying will predict turnover intenti...
Article
Given the fact that most of the dark personality measures are developed based on data collected in low-stake settings, the present study addresses the appropriateness of their use in high-stake contexts. Specifically, we examined item- and scale-level differential functioning of the Short Dark Triad (SD3; Paulhus & Jones, 2011 ) measure across test...
Article

By building on the motivational process proposed by the Job Demands-Resources model, we explore the roles of job crafting and strengths use on contextual performance, with conscientiousness and openness as important determinants. A sample of medical staff with a diverse range of jobs (e.g., dentistry, psychiatry) was used to test the hypothesized m...

Four different confirmatory models were tested, followed by an IRT analysis to test the scale structure at the item level in the two different contexts (selection vs. academic exams). Results indicated that the 11‐factor...

The current law of Social Dialog is seriously criticized by a significant part of Romanian s...
Article
This study examined the relationship between the perceived fairness of the assessment process and the intention of participants to appeal the process, while taking into consideration the influence of two personality traits. Specifically, two of the Big Five traits, neuroticism and agreeableness, were included in the model, based on their special im...
Article
The present paper tackles a problem in the candidate reactions literature: the replicability of results that emerge when using in vivo and in vitro designs. The current study was designed to provide a conceptual replication of a dynamic model of change in fairness perceptions during the hiring process, using a different research design, different m...

Quality of life and well-being are key ingredients of mental health. There are several conceptual models and derivative measures of well-being. Subjective well-being is, perhaps, the most prominent perspective on well-being, with the Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) constructed in line with this perspective. Regrettably, the SWLS has not been ad...
