The objective of this dissertation is to examine the joint effect of mentor personality and justice perceptions on protégé perceptions of negative mentoring. Theories on displaced aggression and trickle-down models are employed. Results show that mentor perceptions of distributive and procedural justice do not predict protégé perceptions of distancing or manipulative behavior. Furthermore, mentor conscientiousness, agreeableness, and neuroticism do not moderate the relationships between mentor justice perceptions and protégé perceptions of negative mentoring. Multi-level modeling was employed to analyze the data.
