Abstract : The report describes development and use of a checklist designed to evaluate whether persons differ systematically in perceiving ambiguous job elements as Inputs (things they must contribute to the job) or as Outcomes (things they may derive from the job). The checklist, consisting of 120 job elements, was used to subgroup 82 male subjects according to their propensity to perceive Inputs or Outcomes. A year previously, these same subjects had taken part in an experimental investigation of various deductions from Equity Theory. Results reported here demonstrate clearly that type I (Input) subjects and type O (Outcome) subjects responded differently (both attitudinally and behaviorally) to conditions of Over and Under Reward during the earlier experiment.
