Sample text

Therefore the person doing the bumping, while not originally a perpetrator, then becomes the aggressor. The provocative victim is likely to respond again, leading to a tit-for-tat spiral effect much like that proposed by Andersson and Pearson (1999). Individuals with lower trait aggressiveness on the other hand, tend not to let the initial ostensibly accidental situation become blown out of proportion by not responding aggressively, if at all, so acts of interpersonal deviance may never eventuate.

For example, Lerner and Keltner (2001) found that anger (an activating, negative emotion) led to risk-seeking choices, which often manifest as behaviors that lie outside accepted norms (that is, deviant behavior). In support of this idea, O’Neill, Vandenberg, Dejoy, and Wilson (2009) found that anger results in deviant behaviors including dangerous risk-taking and alcohol consumption; and Gabriel (1998) outlined how insults lead to negative feelings of shame, guilt, and anger, which in turn results in retaliation.

In this respect, Ashkanasy and Daus (2002) describe a situation where an employee who is under stress, but is still required to engage in positive emotional displays, might also engage in deviance (sabotage in this instance). Finally, at the organizational level, we agree with Fineman’s (2004) assessment that organizations need to take care lest an overly prescriptive focus on emotion becomes an objective in itself. Antonakis, Ashkanasy, and Dasborough (2009) refer to this as “the curse of emotions” (250), where supervisors might engage in emotional manipulation as a means to control employees, resulting in retaliatory and potentially deviant behavior.
