Climate Control Exercise
what is the independent and dependent variable ?

A study is explored that the effects of destructive personality and unethical climate on unethical behavior in leadership situations. In this study participants were placed in 5 fictitious leadership situations and asked to report how they would behave in each situation. Participants unethical behavior score was the total number of times they chose an unethical course of action over the 5 leadership situations.

Half the participants in this study were assigned to an unethical climate condition. They were given a description of their organization that depicted it as supporting questionable or shady activities. The other half were assigned to a control condition and given an organizational description that did not discuss unethical climate.

After completing the exercises, participants destructive personality were measured using a questionnair. Based on responses, participants were classified as either having high or low destructive personaliy. We hypothesized that the highest unethical behavior would be shown the by the combination of 1) a high desctructive personality and 2) bing in the unethical climate condition(in other words, both conditions would have to be present)

Sorry its so long, but can you tell me what is the independent variable and the dependent variable?

Independent : effects of destructive personality and unethical climate
dependent: unethical behavior in leadership situations
