Investigated the relationship between self-perceived task-relevant abilities (SPART) and job behavior. Ss were 88 clerical workers in a government ministry, 17–35 yrs of age. 48 Ss were married and half of these Ss had children. About 71% of the Ss had completed their secondary education. The SPART inventory was administered twice. Job performance and complaining behavior ratings were obtained from supervisors. Their correlations with SPART were .23 and −.30, respectively, and they were significant at .05. Results indicate that workers' perception of their standing on job-relevant abilities influences their job behaviors. Findings are explained in the framework of consistency and self-concept theories.
