However, the t-test shows that respondent gender makes no difference in terms of the level of their cynicism. The findings of this study state that there are three factors that negatively influencing change-specific cynicism; that is perceived information quality (Beta -0.44), perceived information justice (Beta -0.38) and supervisor support in career development (Beta -0.15). Other predictor factors being tested, namely trust in management, organizational identification, perceived organizational support, supervisor support in the development of personal and perceived support of a colleague does not affect the change-specific cynicism.
