Abstract: The purpose of this study is to explore the antecedents of perceived overqualification (POQ) and to investigate its relationship with relevant work behaviors and perceptions. Supervisory (N = 208) and self-reports (N = 415) were collected. Results indicate that POQ is predicted by narcissism and certain work dimensions, including task repetition and the presence of a uniform requirement. POQ is also related to lower job satisfaction and organizational commitment, and higher turnover intentions. Further research is needed to address POQ’s relationship to absenteeism and truancy.
