This research aims to analyze the complex nature of Job Satisfaction. Through the collection of data from a sample of 210 employed individuals the research has broken job satisfaction into seven major factors and then calculated the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality type for each individual, in order to investigate the correlation between personality and job satisfaction. The correlation analysis of the data gathered suggests that individuals displaying specific personality traits tend to express greater job satisfaction when those requirements are met. Individuals scoring high in the Judgment dimension, attained a high correlation with the Promotion factor of job satisfaction, while individuals scoring high with the Feeling dimension, attained a high correlation with the Coworkers factor of job satisfaction. The results and correlation conclusions are also supported by the existing literature.
