Valeria Vyner Pillin, (2006) The relationship between extroversion and neuroticism and job satisfaction. Masters thesis, Universiti Malaysia Sabah.



Personality dimensions of Extroversion and Neuroticism have been linked to job satisfaction by previous researches. This study attempts to test whether similar relationship exists among managers in Kota Kinabalu. This research was conducted through the survey method. A total of 115 respondents that representing managers of various private sector organizations were gathered. Responses from the survey were statistically analyzed with several tools using SPSS version 11.0. The results indicated that, similar with prior researches, Neuroticism is negatively related to job satisfaction, and Extroversion is positively related to job satisfaction. However, age and gender was found not to moderate the relationship between these variables. The research hopes to foster a better understanding on the role of personality in achieving job satisfaction.
