It is presumed that those who are more apt at monitoring their behaviour are also more apt in portraying themselves in any given light, as required of them by the situation they find themselves in. When it comes to work settings, an individual high in self-monitoring is expected to show a higher level of impression management, or so to say, deceptive behaviour. An analysis of the literature on the subject indicated that the relationship between impression management and self-monitoring may not be such a straightforward one. Therefore, a study was conducted under the hypothesis that the two concepts do not go hand in hand, but are in fact orthogonal. A negative correlation found between impression management and self-monitoring implied that deception might be less a matter of predisposition and more a matter of personal choice.
