ABSTRACT

This study, which is based on the assumption that cultural context may play a role in the transference of conflicts, a phenomenon characterized by task conflict affecting relation conflict, two of the most representative intragroup conflicts, surveys 493 Korean and Chinese workers (256 Koreans, 237 Chinese) to compare survey groups against each other and verify the results. First of all, in the context of collectivism, it is assumed that conflict transference is easy to occur, and that is common among both Korean and Chinese workers who share the same cultural context, and the analysis agrees with the assumption. In addition, in an attempt to identify the differences between Korean and Chinese workers, the two groups are analyzed through comparison of the moderating effects of Leader-Member Exchange, or LMX. As a result, the moderating effect of LMX is found in conflict transference among Chinese workers, but this effect is not found among Korean workers. To explain such a difference, this study adds a layer of cultural diversity - verticalness and horizontalness - to collectivism. Lastly, implications and limitations are suggested.
