Abstract

Numerous studies have been conducted in the West to examine relationships between personality and stress, while other studies have focused on the relationship between dispositional traits and job satisfaction. However, few empirical studies have investigated how these three variables interact among one another in a Chinese context. The focus of this study was to investigate how personality traits relate to self-reported distress and job satisfaction of employees in the public sector in Hong Kong, nurses and teachers. The results expanded the knowledge on the interactions observed between personality traits and distress and job satisfaction perceived by employees in a Chinese context. © 1997, MCB UP Limited
