Discussion of findings and implications for theory and practice

  • Philipp Herzog


In the following, empirical findings are discussed and theoretical implications are highlighted. The present study’s findings are discussed in the order of the underlying hypotheses testing. Hence, results regarding both personality measures are discussed first. This is particularly useful, since the variable ‘personality – go-getting’ has also been used as a covariate for some hypotheses. Accordingly, group means have been adjusted for that variable. The effects on the results of the other dependent variables will be interpreted. Although no hypothesis has been formulated regarding the employees’ overall job satisfaction, results for this variable are discussed as well, since it has also been used as a covariate. Furthermore, figures are presented that show the group means for each variable in order to facilitate the discussion. In case variables have been adjusted by a covariate, both raw means and adjusted means are displayed.
