ABSTRACT
This article examines the relationship between perceived message distortion among subordinates and job satisfaction of supervisors. The authors tested the hypothesis that there is a positive correlation between a superior's job satisfaction and the extent to which he perceives messages from subordinates as accurate. Supervisors depend upon accurate information from subordinates to maintain a pivotal role in the organization. If a supervisor perceives that messages from subordinates are inaccurate, this perception should have a detrimental effect on the perception of a supervisor's pivotal position.
