    Which verb should I use?

    An instructor may interfere / transfer / impose his negative feelings with/ to/ on his job and gives an unfair grade to the students.


    Thank you for allocating your time answering my question.

    'Transfer to'; 'impose on' both work. 'Interfere' doesn't.

    Transference is also the word used in psychology for this sort of thing, though usually it applies to people - transferring a feeling about someone to someone else. For example, if the instructor was angry at his own children at home, he could transfere those feelings onto his students.
