In this study, the role of feedback frequency and negative affectivity relating to self-efficacy, job satisfaction, and job performance was examined. In total, 148 participant responses were collected via internet survey. Using regression analysis, no support was found for feedback frequency predicting self-efficacy, job satisfaction, or perceptions of job performance. Support was found for affectivity negatively predicting self-efficacy, job satisfaction, and perceptions of job performance. These findings are consistent with previous affectivity research. An exploratory regression analysis was conducted to test if an interaction term composed of negative affectivity and feedback frequency predicted the dependent measures, but these analyses were not significant. Limitations of the current study and implications for future research are discussed.
