Abstract:Knowledge hiding research has been underrepresented, although identified as an area requiring research attention. This research investigates if situational perceptions of conflict and future interdependence, as well as personality – with a focus on Honesty-Humility – relate to and moderate knowledge hiding intentions. Based on the research question “what is the relation between personality, conflict and future interdependence with knowledge hiding intention?” a 2x2 between subject designs was applied to gather quantitative data. An online questionnaire was used (N = 199). The expected significant negative relation between Honesty-Humility and knowledge hiding intentions (for both general knowledge hiding and situational knowledge hiding) was found. Besides, a significant relation was found between conflict and knowledge hiding (situational) intentions. Future interdependence correlated with situational knowledge hiding, but showed no significant effect with situational knowledge hiding in the hierarchical regression analysis. Conflict and future interdependence did not moderate the relation between Honesty-Humility and knowledge hiding. A weakness to consider was that knowledge hiding is a relatively underreported low-base-rate event. Future studies should continue examining the moderating role of conflict and future interdependence in greater detail, to investigate if other descriptions of the manipulations of conflict and future interdependence have an effect on knowledge hiding intentions, and the relation of knowledge hiding intentions with different moderating variables from the SIS, such as power or information certainty.
