Summary The present study uses generalizability theory to further explore the sources of variance in implicit leadership theories. Most studies which examine the differences in implicit leadership theories either focus on differences in the raters such as gender, religion, culture, and other individual differences, or focus on target differences such as race of the leader, gender of the leader, and position held by the leader. The present study used a G study design to examine the relative impact of both rater and target characteristics simultaneously. In addition to examining the relative influence of rater and target characteristics, the present study examined possible interactions between them. The rater characteristics examined include core self evaluations, agency, communality, and political orientation. The target characteristics to be examined include gender, domain in which the leader operates, and authority level of the leader. Results indicate that interactions between rater characteristics and target characteristics are an important source of variance in implicit leadership theories and should be further explored in future research.
