|Title:||Type A Behavior Pattern and Escalating Commitment|
|Citation:||Schaubroeck, J.,Williams, S. (1993). Type A Behavior Pattern and Escalating Commitment. Journal of Applied Psychology 78 (5) : 862-867. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.|
|Abstract:||Subjects (N = 98) were randomly assigned to high- and low-responsibility conditions in a commitment-escalation experiment. Global Type A behavior pattern and the underlying dimension of achievement strivings were positively related to the desire to continue the same course of action in the high prior-responsibility condition but not in the low prior-responsibility condition. These findings are discussed in terms of future research into the judgment processes of people with Type A personality and the possible role of escalating commitment in disorders experienced by people with Type A personality.|
