Dyadic relationship harmony in work groups
The 28th International Congress of Psychology
Chinese Psychological Society
Relationship harmony has long been valued in traditional Chinese culture. Previous research indicated that relationship harmony is related to an individual's personality like independent/ interdependent self-construal (e.g., Li, Kwan, & Bond, 1999). We further proposed to study relationship harmony at the dyadic level so to understand it as a construct of the relationship per se. Partners in work groups assessed the level of relationship harmony with each of the members. Individual scores were aggregated to give a dyadic-level relationship harmony index. Personality correlates to this index would be assessed, and the possible influence of group culture would also be examined.
