Job satisfaction is a complex variable and is influenced by situational factors of the job environment as well as dispositional characteristics of the individual. Recently there has been renewed interest in the role of dispositional characteristics in predicting work-related outcomes. The aim of this study was to determine the possible relationship between the dispositional factors of sense of coherence, locus of control and self-efficacy on the one hand, and job satisfaction on the other. The study population included 624 employees of 7 organisations. Sense of coherence, locus of control and self-efficacy were found to be related constructs, but only sense of coherence and locus of control were significantly related to job satisfaction. Sense of coherence, locus of control and self-efficacy predicted 30 per cent of the variance in total job satisfaction.
