Abstract

This article proposes that the variation in perceived job stress by individuals is explained by the interaction between the situational "Other 3" dimensions (locus of control, self-monitoring, and self-efficacy) and the "Big 5" personality traits. Situational stressors primarily impact the "Other 3" dimensions in the general model. The "Other 3" dimensions mediate the stressor-job stress relationship, while the "Big 5" dimensions moderate the "Other 3"-job stress relationship. In the sequential process model, the "Other 3" dimensions and job stress are cross-lagged related to define subsequent variations in the "Other 3" dimensions of personality and job stress. This perspective is consistent with the interactional perspective, wherein personality mediates the relationship of the individual with the environment. We offer several research propositions and conclude with implications for research and practice.
