Abstract

Introduction: The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between self-regulation and personality traits (neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness) with job stress in University of Isfahan employees.  Materials and Methods: This study has a descriptive correlational design. The statistical population was employees (1217) working at university of Isfahan during 2015. 200 individuals were selected through multistage random sampling. Self-Regulation Questionnaire (Brown, Miller, Lawendowski, 1999), NEO Five-Factor Inventory (Costa and McCrae, 1990), and Job Stress Questionnaire (Davis, Robbins and McKay, 1991) were used to collect data. Pearson�s correlation, simultaneous regression, and independent t-test were used to analyze data.  Results: The results showed that there was a significant negative relationship between job stress with self-regulation and four traits of personality (extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness) (P<0.01). There was also a significant positive relationship between job stress and neuroticism (P<0.01). Self-regulation (P<0.01), neuroticism (P<0.01), and extraversion (P<0.05) can predict job stress. In addition, there was no significant difference between males and females in terms of self-regulation, personality traits, and job stress. Conclusion: Regarding the role of self-regulation, neuroticism, and extraversion in job stress; it may be advised to allocate jobs in accordance with these individual characteristics, so that we can reduce the level of job stress and increase the level of mental health.
