Hypotheses
H1
Structural validity
Facework and reciprocal favour items combine to form a single dimension ( renqing)
H2
Criterion-related validity
The GQS has a significant positive correlation with each of 3 outcome variables: relational commitment, trust in the partner’s organization, and relational satisfaction
H3
Role of xinren
Xinren (trust) is better conceptualized in terms of a dimension of guanxi quality than as an outcome
H4
Convergent validity
The GQS has a positive correlation with existing uni- and multi-dimensional measures of workplace guanxi
H5
Incremental validity
The GQS outperforms the unidimensional measure in predicting each of the 3 outcome variables
H6
