Discrete Emotion, Organizational Citizenship Behavior, Workplace Deviance
This study examines the relationship between discrete emotions and employee willingness to engage in workplace deviant behavior and organizational citizenship behaviors. Data were obtained from 60 employed people who consented to participate in the study. A total of 53 respondents participated. Logistic regression and descriptive statistics showed that the discrete emotions of happiness/joy, involvement/interest, irritation/anger, and guilt/remorse provided significant predictability with regard to employees' willingness to engage in deviant or organizational citizenship behaviors. Implications of the findings, as they pertain to future research, are discussed.
