This study was designed to investigate the correlations between supervisor`s perceived
subclinical psychopathy and subordinate`s organizational commitment, overall job satisfaction
and particularly satisfaction with his/her supervisor. The results, based on a sample of
153 employees, showed that subordinates working with leaders, who can be de ned as organizational
(or industrial, corporate) psychopaths, tended to adopt more negative work attitudes.
Supervisor`s perceived subclinical psychopathy had a negative impact on subordinates’
job satisfaction, satisfaction with supervisor and their organizational commitment. The paper
discusses the results and limitations of the study, and offers suggestions for future research.
