The current work outlines the development and validation of a new self-report measure that assesses the cognitive biases of aggressive individuals (using seven samples, Total N = 3,638). The scale is reliable with a hierarchical 6-factor structure, and displays convergent and discriminant validity. Criterion-related validity studies indicate: incremental effects over social desirable responding bias and related aggression measures; meaningful relationships with core job attitudes, workplace behaviors, and well-being; mediating effects between abusive supervision and counterproductive work behaviors; and meaningful relationships with multi-wave self-report counterproductive work behaviors and other-report general counterproductive behaviors. Collectively these results provide strong initial support for the newly developed measure.
