Abstract:

This study tests the hypothesis that behaviors engaged in as part of an individual's work roles impact the cognitions that are the antecedents of task-related self-esteem. This experiment varied participants' cognitions of competence/incompetence, importance/unimportance, and control/non-control within the context of role playing in a job interview. Results indicate that although the cognitions were influenced as a consequence of role-playing on the task, manipulation of the cognitions had no influence on task-specific-self-esteem. However, perceptions of the task-related cognitions were related to self-esteem ratings. Discussion focuses on implications of these findings for research on workplace self-esteem.
