Article
Full-text available
Research on emotion recognition ability (ERA) and psychopathy produces divergent outcomes: While some studies find ERA deficits in persons with psychopathy, others find heightened emotional abilities. In this study, we seek to disentangle these inconclusive findings by employing different measures of psychopathy, analyzing them globally as well as...
Article
Full-text available
Building on recent findings corroborating nonlinear associations between vulnerable and grandiose narcissism, we explored the possibility of nonlinear relations between the dimensions of psychopathy and Machiavellianism, respectively. We tested the relations within Machiavellianism using the Five Factor Machiavellianism Inventory (FFMI) in a sample...

Article
Full-text available
Emotion recognition ability of emotions expressed by other people (ERA-O) can be important for job performance, leadership, bargaining, and career success. Traditional personnel assessment tools of this ability, however, are contaminated by linguistic skills. In a time of global work migration, more and more people speak a language at work that is...
Chapter
In diesem Beitrag wird der konzeptuelle Zusammenhang von Führung und Persönlichkeit aus psychologischer Sicht untersucht. Dafür stellen wir ausgehend von der sozioanalytischen Persönlichkeitstheorie Grundannahmen zur Bedeutung von Führung aus evolutionärer Perspektive dar und erläutern die dazugehörigen Konzepte von Persönlichkeit und sozialen Komp...
Article
Full-text available
Does psychopathy have an upside in vocational contexts? Applying the triarchic model of psychopathy, we propose that the dimensions of boldness, disinhibition, and meanness have different relations to workplace outcomes. Focusing on boldness and in line with socioanalytic personality theory, we propose that political skill moderates the relation be...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we analyze the vocational behavior of individuals with different scores on the personality trait of Machiavellianism. A meta-analysis showed (O'Boyle, Forsyth, Banks & McDaniel, 2012) that trait Machiavellianism is associated with low performance at work. This is surprising because Niccolò Machiavelli had success in mind when he repu...
Article
Full-text available
Previous research has found that emotion recognition ability for faces (ERA-F) positively predicts occupational status after controlling for age based on the variance it shares with General Mental Ability (GMA). As the voice might also be an important source of information in social communication, we tested whether emotion recognition ability for v...
Article
Full-text available
Previous research has found that the ability to accurately recognize emotions expressed by others correlates with many vocational outcomes. However, these correlations might be due to third variables. We hypothesized that ERA for faces would indeed predict occupational status when controlling for age but that this relation would be erased when join...

Five Factor Machiavellianism Inventory (FFMI), German version, used by Kückelhaus, Blickle, Kranefeld, Körnig, & Genau (2020). The Five Factor Machiavellianism Inventory (FFMI; Collison, K.

Article
Full-text available
Numerous scholars have criticized the traditional assessment of Machiavellianism due to insufficient construct coverage, some going so far as to question its distinctness from psychopathy. Tackling these issues, Collison, Vize, Miller, and Lynam developed the Five Factor Machiavellianism Inventory (FFMI), comprising antagonism, agency, and planfuln...
Article
Full-text available
On the basis of socioanalytic theory (Hogan & Shelton, 1998) and mimicry-deception theory (Jones, 2014), we hypothesized that political skill would effectively mask Machiavellianism (socioanalytic theory) with consequences for coworker perceived career role performance and actual counterproductive work behavior at low and high levels of job tenure...

Chapter
Full-text available
Political behavior in organizations refers to the power struggle over work and career assets. As research on the organizational political arena grew, it became clear that some individuals are more successful at managing this landscape than others. This emerging construct, termed political skill, was designed to capture the social savvy and competen...

Project
In this project, we aim to understand how emotional competences relate to work place outcomes, such as job performance. One of these competences is the ability to recognize other people's emotions. We are currently developing a measure of emotion recognition that overcomes boundaries of existing instruments by applying a nonlinguistical procedure.
Project
This project further elaborates socioanalytic theory and applies it to behavior at work. We apply it e.g. to adaptive performance, implicit traits, successful psychopathy, leader performance, leader charisma, and counterproductive work behavior. We combine socioanalytic theory with trait activation theory and social effetiveness constructs at work such as political skill, emotion recognition ability, understanding emotions, and emotional intelligence.
