Abstract

The relationship among social interdependence, constructive controversy, and extra-role performanee (organizational citizenship behavior) ratings was investigated in this study. Participants were 135 dyads (a peer or supervisor and an employee) consisting of Chinese employees from four organizations located in Beijing. The results indicate that ratees who were perceived as cooperators were rated more favorably than were competitors and individualists on extrarole performance ratings, especially when the cooperators are female rather than male. Constructive controversy mediated the relationship between social interdependence and extra-role performance ratings, especially when the ratees are subordinates rather than peers.
