This study is being conducted by:
Timothy A. Judge, Matherly-McKethan Eminent Scholar of Management, University of Florida
Remus Ilies, PhD Candidate, Management Department, University of Florida
The purpose of this study is to learn more about the role of personality and moods in the reporting of work and nonwork attitudes.
If you agree to be in this study, we will ask you to do the following things:
1. You will be asked to complete a survey that will take approximately 30 minutes
2. Over the course of two weeks (excepting the weekend), you will be asked to complete two very brief (5 minutes or less) surveys each day Monday-Friday. While at work, you will complete these surveys on-line at an Internet address that will be given to you. While away from work (once each evening), the surveys you complete will be on paper, but they also will take 5 minutes or less to complete. Thus, in total, you will complete 20 of these brief surveys over two weeks-10 at work and 10 at home.
3. Additionally, your spouse will be asked to complete a brief survey, and your supervisor will be asked to complete a brief survey as well. Their responses to these surveys are strictly confidential (as are your own responses).
