*Title: Reflecting on death amidst COVID-19: Different trajectories and its
impact on creativity thru four-wave longitudinal investigation*

Abstract: The current COVID-19 pandemic has claimed thousands of lives all
across the globe, making death more salient to many of us who may not have
been readily cognizant of such fate. Even though employees in certain
occupations routinely deal with the idea of death or mortality, it is not
always the case that regular employees in other occupations are made aware
of their own mortality. In the current study, using four-wave longitudinal
data collected weekly during the initial peak of COVID-19 infections in the
United States—during late-June to late-July—we examine how employees
interpret and react to death reflection over time and whether or not death
reflection is related to creativity. Conducting latent class growth
analysis on four-wave longitudinal data obtained from 592 full-time
employees, we find four different patterns of mortality salience (death
reflection), which are predicted by age, gender, and exercise in an
anticipated yet complex manner. In addition, the four trajectories relate
differentially to employee creativity. We offer timely, valuable
implications for theory and practice
