Three studies examined the concomitants of power (over others) and personal control (over one’s life). Power positively predicted aggressiveness (Study 1) and exploitativeness (Study 2), while personal control predicted these outcomes negatively. In Study 3, power and personal control differentially mediated the effects of a high organizational position on exploitativeness and aggressiveness.
