- In the research of organizational behaviors, there are two typical leader-member exchanges (LMX). Some are high quality exchange based on high trust and obligation. Others are low quality exchange relationships based on economic and interest. Recently, the domestic and foreign scholars proposed four types of LMX fit, including double high, follower overestimation, leader overestimation, and double low. This study explored the effect of LMX fit on employees’ supportive and abusive behaviors perceptions. The results of statistical analysis from 380 dyads of questionnaires of subordinates and their immediate supervisors shows: (1) The forms of double high and follower overestimation have a positive impact on employee’s supportive behavior; while the forms of perceptions fit of leader overestimation and double low have a negative impact on employee’s supportive behavior. (2) The forms of double high and follower overestimation have a positively inhibitory factor on employee’s abusive behavior; while the forms of double low and leader overestimation are as the evoked situational factors of employee’s abusive behavior perception.
