Perceptions of workplace incivility based on personality characteristics: A replication
The purpose of the current study is to replicate a previous study by Sliter, Withrow, and Jex (2015) that sought to determine whether personality characteristics influence how individuals perceive uncivil behaviors in the workplace. The original study is the only one that has attempted to isolate incivility perceptions from the reported experience of incivility. The original study determined that positive affect and trait anger were the strongest predictors of perceived incivility. Results from the current study show the same pattern. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
