Summary
This study was designed to explore affinity-seeking behaviors in superior-subordinate dyads in similar organizations. A sample of 40 dyads, each comprised of a superior and a corresponding subordinate, separately completed a survey instrument to provide insight into affinity-seeking strategies and test the affinity-seeking process model and typology. Field observations with debriefing interviews provided additional empirical data. The data was analyzed using the consistent comparison method (Glaser & Strauss, 1967). The results revealed that motive data were not consistent with affinity-seeking and suggested that some behaviors previously termed "affinity-seeking" are actually "imitation affinity-seeking" behaviors. These communicative acts were designed purposefully to obtain results other than or in addition to affinity. The data supported the other stages of the model and provided a useful new understanding of superior-subordinate communication for assessing organizational hierarchical communication exchange and feedback
