Abstract (Swedish)
Studiens syfte är att undersöka individers attributionsstil, Locus of Control (LOC), i relation till deras självskattade grad av arbetstillfredsställelse. Detta görs genom enkäter, där totalt 36 personer (25 kvinnor och 11 män) mellan 18 och 65 år, och med olika yrken finns representerade. Hypotesen, att en intern LOC skulle korrelera med en högre grad av arbetstillfredsställelse och en extern LOC med lägre grad av arbetstillfredsställelse, kunde ej stödjas. Istället fann vi tendenser till stabila attributionsstilar hos deltagarna, vilket innebär samma förklaringsmönster för både positiva och negativa händelser. Detta är ett nytt unikt resultat som bör undersökas vidare.
Abstract
The purpose of this study was to examine individuals’ attributional styles, Locus of Control (LOC), and how they are related to the self-rated degree of their work satisfaction. This was made through surveys with the total sum of 36 participants (25 women and 11 men) between 18 and 65 year, representing different professions. Our hypothesis, that an internal LOC would correlate with a higher degree of work satisfaction and an external LOC with a lower degree of work satisfaction, could not be supported. On the other hand, we found tendencies to stability in attributional styles, which means that individuals show the same explanation pattern irresepctive of whether the events were positive or negative. This result is new and unique, and... (More)
