Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(8), 655. Reviews the book, Models of Job Satisfaction by Orjan E. Hultåker (1977). Most startling of the omissions in the Hultaker work, however, is the area of individual differences and situational and personal contingency variables moderating the relationship between task characteristics and job outcomes and satisfaction. While this has been a major thrust of work on job satisfaction in the mid-1970s, Hultaker remains almost completely silent on the topic. Hultaker concludes from the evidence he reviews that neither the two-factor nor linear models adequately describe job-satisfaction-related processes and proposes a “marginal non-linear model of job satisfaction” as a substitute. Hultaker presents one limited attempt to demonstrate the usefulness of his model. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
