ASSIS, Dirce Monteiro  and  NASCIMENTO, José Luís. Cinismo organizacional: Estudo preliminar de adaptação de uma escala de medida para o contexto português. Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.3, pp.383-393. ISSN 0870-8231.

Organizational cynicism, understood as an attitude of disbelief towards the organization and its management, resulting from the lack of coherence of management practices and translated by negative feelings and behaviors, is a construct that has recently been subjected to several studies. For the measurement of this construct two questionnaires have been used, although none of them has been studied for the Portuguese context. Thus, the present study consisted in the adaptation of the measurement scale of organizational cynicism proposed by Brandes, Dharwadkar and Dean (1999) for the portuguese context. The results follow the proposal of the authors, pointing to the three-dimensional character of the construct, although not rejecting the possibility of its uni-dimensionality. The results suggest an instrument with good properties of measurement. The implications of these results are discussed.

Keywords : Organizational cynicism; Dimensions of organizational cynicism; Scale of measurement.
