The Moderating Effects of Collectivistic Orientation on Psychological Ownership and Constructive Deviant Behavior

Yang Woon Chung, Hyoung Koo Moon

Abstract


Psychological ownership has been theorized to result in positive organizational consequences because feelings of
ownership can increase an individual’s sense of responsibility and prioritize organizational interests. Previous
studies have found psychological ownership to be significantly related to job satisfaction, organizational
commitment, and organizational citizenship behavior; therefore, this study proposes psychological ownership to
be significantly related to constructive deviant behavior because it is considered to be functional behavior that is
intended to improve the organization’s well-being. Furthermore, this study investigates the moderating effects of
collectivistic orientation on psychological ownership and constructive deviant behavior. The study sampled 465
Korean employees and has found psychological ownership to be significantly related to innovative constructive
deviant behavior and interpersonal constructive deviant behavior. For the moderating effects, collectivistic
orientation moderated the relationships between psychological ownership and organizational constructive
deviant behavior and interpersonal constructive deviant behavior.
