Abstract : Supervisor's ratings of individual workers were related to the central life interests (CLI) of the workers. The group of workers who had a job oriented CLI received the highest ratings from their supervisors among the three CLI groups on initiative and application, cooperation, and quantity of work and were rated low on adaptability. The reverse pattern held for workers with a non-job CLI. Implications of these findings are discussed for their utility in interpreting supervisor's orientations in making performance evaluations, as they relate to the characteristics of the rating system.
