I collected group-level data in a laboratory experiment, and explored the roles of affect and cognition in predicting supervised groups’ attitudes toward direct and indirect supervisors. Results suggest that both affect and cognition were significant predictors for the 2 target attitudes. Cognition exerted a stronger influence than affect on attitudes toward direct supervisors, whereas affect predicted attitudes toward indirect supervisors more strongly than cognition, despite the nonsignificant predictive difference. I also suggest how to improve supervised groups’ attitudes toward supervisors through affective and cognitive interventions.
