Abstract
We have attempted to explore vocational psychology and personality with a focus on job performance, job satisfaction, and subjective well-being (SWB). Our review found Emotional Stability: Conscientiousness, and Extraversion to be important variables related to job performance and job satisfaction. As noted by Judge et al. (2001), workers who are emotionally stable, extraverted, and conscientious may be happier at work because they are more likely to experience satisfying results at work. In addition, there is indirect evidence that appears to suggest that Emotional Stability conscientiousness, and extraversion are important to goal selection and SWB.
