Abstract

Four alternate (mediational, suppressor, moderator, and direct effects) models of the role of negative affectivity on the correlation between role conflict or role ambiguity with job satisfaction were investigated. The correlations reported in the literature were cumulated using the principles of psychometric meta-analyses (Hunter & Schmidt, 1990) to test the models for the effect of negative affectivity on 1) the role conflict-job satisfaction relationship, and 2) the role ambiguity- job satisfaction relationship. Of the nine meta-analyses conducted, correlational data were found in support of all hypothesized direct effects models, most mediational models, but no moderator or suppressor models.
