Abstract: I examine the consequences of envy and feeling envied in my dissertation. In the first part of my dissertation, I explore envy at the dyadic level and its effects on interpersonal behaviors and how workplace ostracism might influence these relationships. Data from a two-wave study indicated that ostracism moderated the relationship between envy and pro-social behavior and the relationship between envy and social undermining. Envy led to increased pro-social behavior and reduced social undermining for employees who feel more ostracized, but not for employees who feel less ostracized. This suggests that envious employees who feel more ostracized at work may respond in a socially functional and adaptive manner by helping and not undermining others. In the second part of my dissertation, I examine whether people who feel envied mispredict how positively others view them. The results show that people who feel envied underestimate how positively envious others perceive them.
