Abstract
This study investigated the relation between Extraversion and Conscientiousness with job satisfaction and job selection in the two occupational groups of telemarketing and administration.

Results indicated that people working with telemarketing tend to be extrovert while people working with administration often are conscientious. Job satisfaction correlated with Extraversion in the telemarketing group. Both groups? values on the Extraversion scale correlated... (More)

The questionnaire was administered over the Internet to forty-one subjects (24 women and 17 men) in the age range 16-65. Results indicated that people working with telemarketing tend to be extrovert while people working with administration often are conscientious. Job satisfaction correlated with Extraversion in the telemarketing group. Both groups? values on the Extraversion scale correlated with job satisfaction, but when self-deception was inserted as a covariate the correlation disappeared. Furthermore, social desirability did show significant correlations with the total reaction time. (Less)
