PSY3302 Discussion 6 - Imagine a competitive business setting
DB 6 PSY 3302
Imagine a competitive business setting in which you are trying to get promoted. You find out that your direct competition for the promotion has been downgrading your work performance and commitment to the company to your supervisors. Within this context, identify the type of aggression (using Table 11.1 in your textbook) and potential motivation for the aggression your coworker exhibited. Then, explain whether you view your coworker's actions as acceptable. How would your perception of acceptability change if you considered the coworker as a male versus a female? Why might a change in perception occur (even if yours would not)?
