A quantitative study of individuals' personality traits' impact on the perceived job satisfaction (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka samband mellan de personlighetsdrag som omfattas i Five Factor Model, FFM, och i vilken grad individer upplever arbetstillfredsställelse. Det undersöktes även om man kunde se ett samband mellan arbetstillfredsställelse och individernas ålder. Arbetstillfredsställelsen studerades genom Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire, MSQ, som undersöker individers upplevelse av inre, yttre och generell arbetstillfredsställelse. Individers grad av personlighetsdimension undersöktes med hjälp av en svensk förkortad version av FFM. Materialet som ligger till grund för studiens resultat kommer från 52 besvarade enkäter som gjorts på två arbetsplatser. Ett tydligt resultat var att högre grad av Extraversion hör ihop med den högre graden av arbetstillfredsställelse. I vår studie undersöktes det om ålder hade ett samband arbetstillfredsställelse, föreliggande studie visade ett negativt medelstarkt samband till den yttre arbetstillfredsställelsen. Då varje individ, utifrån FFM, har en unik kombination av de fem personlighetsdragen, kan studiens resultat inte generaliseras till hur individer generellt sett upplever arbetstillfredsställelse. Föreliggande studie har endast kunnat förstärka de resultat som tidigare studier har kommit fram till; att det finns samband mellan de fem personlighetsdragen och arbetstillfredsställelse

Abstract [en]

The study was aimed to investigate the relationship between the personality traits included in the Five Factor Model and the degree to which individuals experience job satisfaction. The study also investigated if it was possible to see a relationship between job satisfaction and individuals’ age. Job satisfaction was measured by the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire, MSQ, which explores an individual's experience of intrinsic, extrinsic and general job satisfaction. Individuals' level of personality dimensions were studied using a Swedish shortened version of the Five- Factor Model. The material that forms the basis for the study's results come from 52 completed questionnaires carried out at two different workplaces. A clear result was that higher Extraversion was associated with higher degree of job satisfaction. Whether age was related job satisfaction, the present study showed a negative medium strong connection to the external job satisfaction. Since each individual, based on FFM, has a unique combination of the five personality traits, the study cannot generalize how individuals in general perceives job satisfaction. The study has only been able to reinforce the results of what previous studies have concluded; that there are correlations between the five personality traits and job satisfaction
