Table 7 outlines the hypotheses relating to the direct and indirect effects of person-

environment fit, authenticity at work, and workplace outcomes, and provides an indication

of support for each of these outlined hypotheses.

Moderating Effects

Tables 2 to 5 reveal that self-deception is directly related to authenticity at work.

Self-deception was significantly related to authentic living (B = .26 to .35, p < .01), self-

alienation (B = -.34 to -.43, p < .01), and accepting external influence (B = -.27 to -.33, p <

.05), indicating that higher self-deception results in higher levels of authentic living, and

lower levels of self-alienation and accepting external influence.

The interaction between person-job fit and self-deception was approaching

significance in predicting authentic living (B = -.13, p < .10), and both person-job fit (B =

.27, p < .05) and person-supervisor fit (B = .30, p < .01) significantly interacted with self-

deception to predict self-alienation.
