Recently, scholars have started to consider the role of attribution of intentionality in the research of abusive supervision. However, no study has examined the direct relationship between abusive supervision and attribution of intentionality or the moderators of this relationship. To address this gap in the research, this study first examined the relationship between two sub-dimensions of abusive supervision (active-aggressive and passive-aggressive) and two types of attribution of intentionality (injury initiation and performance promotion). Additionally, this research examined the moderation effect of the chastening norm on both relationships. This study received 152 responses, which excludes incomplete samples and respondents who indicated 1 on active- or passive-aggressive abusive supervision. Hierarchal multiple regression was used to analyze the data. This study found that active-aggressive abusive supervision was positively related to the injury initiation motive and passive-aggressive abusive supervision was negatively related to the performance promotion motive. Furthermore, the chastening norm negatively moderated the relationship between passive-aggressive abusive supervision and performance promotion motive. The implications of this study for managers, along with future research for sub-dimensions of abusive supervision and attribution of intentionality, are discussed herein.
