Sample text

Martocchio and Judge (1997) and Colquitt and Simmering (1998) found highly conscientious individuals were more efficacious. Martocchio and Judge suggested that previous counterintuitive results involving conscientiousness might be due to the tendency of highly conscientious individuals to be self-deceptive regarding their actual learning progress. , Kanfer & Ackerman, 1989). Supporting both points, LePine, Colquitt, and Erez (2000), using an experimental learning task, found that some aspects of conscientiousness, including dependability, order, and dutifulness, can reduce performance when adaptability to changing task conditions is important.

Additionally, females were more strongly influenced by perceptions of computer self-efficacy and ease of use. In a related study, Venkatesh, Morris, and Ackerman (2000) examined gender differences in the individual adoption and sustained usage of technology in the workplace. They found that men were more influenced by their attitude toward using the new technology than women, whereas women were more strongly influenced by subjective norms and perceived behavioral control. Loss of control can be interpreted as threatening and anxiety producing.

Together, these findings suggest that age is positively related to important variables, including conscientiousness and Gc, which are strong predictors of learning. These relationships ameliorate some of the negative effects of aging that result from reductions in Gf. Findings are consistent with a cognitive investment theory of adult intellect, which views intellectual development as an evolving outcome of intelligence-as-process, personality, and interests, leading to Gc and domain-specific knowledge (Kanfer & Ackerman, 2004).
