内隐追随理论, 是个体心目中既存的关于追随者的特质和行为的认知结构或图式, 是当前组织行为研究领域中的一个新兴的概念。内隐追随理论与X-Y理论、内隐绩效理论等既有区别又有联系。内隐追随理论研究的理论基础主要可归纳为认知分类模型、信息加工模型及联结主义网络模型等。现有研究还对内隐追随理论的测量、前因变量和后果变量等进行了初步的探讨。未来研究中, 可能会注重开发更有效的测验工具, 深入探索影响内隐追随理论形成的因素, 采用多种方法进一步澄清变量间的因果联系, 以及加强内隐追随理论的本土化研究等。

关键词: 内隐追随理论, 内隐领导理论, 图式


Implicit Followership Theory (IFT), which is defined as cognitive structures and schemas about the traits and behaviors that characterize followers, is a new concept in the area of organizational behavior. IFT is conceptual category that differs from X-Y Theory and Implicit Performance Theory as well as has connections with them. Previous studies, which based on theories of Cognitive Classification Model, Information Processing Model or Connectionist Network Model, have preliminary investigated the definition, measure, antecedents and outcomes of IFT. To boost the studies on IFT, it is proposed to develop more effective tools, focus on factors affecting IFT, clarify the causal links between variables due to various methods and conduct localization research of IFT in future.

Key words: implicit followership theory, implicit leadership theory, schemas
