Abstract

This article presents meta-analytic results of therelationship of 4 traits—self-esteem, generalizedself-efficacy, locus of control, and emotional stability(low neuroticism)—with job satisfaction and jobperformance. With respect to job satisfaction, the estimated truescore correlations were .26 for self-esteem, .45 forgeneralized self-efficacy, .32 for internal locus ofcontrol, and .24 for emotional stability. With respect tojob performance, the correlations were .26 forself-esteem, .23 for generalizedself-efficacy, .22 for internal locus of control, and.19 for emotional stability. In total, the results based on274 correlations suggest that these traits are among the best dispositionalpredictors of job satisfaction and job performance. T. A. Judge, E.A. Locke, and C. C. Durham's(1997) theory of core self-evaluations is used as aframework for discussing similarities between the 4 traits and theirrelationships to satisfaction and performance.
