Abstract

Individuals engage in impression management behaviors in most social situations. However, one of the most prone settings to impression management is the work context. Even though the extent to which an individual performs impression management behaviors is influenced by situational factors, it is also plausible that there is a dispositional component involved, as some people are more likely to engage in impression management behaviors than others. Therefore, it is important to be able to measure the extent to which individuals are likely to engage in impression management. In this study, an innovative approach to the measurement of impression management is proposed. Specifically, as a form of implicit assessment, a conditional reasoning test (CRT) is developed to measure impression management propensity. Keywords: Impression management, CRT, ingratiation, self-promotion, exemplification

Developing A Conditional Reasoning Test for Impression Management

Individuals engage in impression management behaviors in most social situations. However, one of the most prone settings to impression management is the work context. Even though the extent to which an individual performs impression management behaviors is influenced by situational factors, it is also plausible that there is a dispositional component involved, as some people are more likely to engage in impression management behaviors than others. Therefore, it is important to be able to measure the extent to which individuals are likely to engage in impression management. In this study, an innovative approach to the measurement of impression management is proposed. Specifically, as a form of implicit assessment, a conditional reasoning test (CRT) is developed to measure impression management propensity.
