          Abstract

          The study examines the relationship of perceived Life Satisfaction (LS) and Role Efficacy (REI) with transactional styles (TS). The sample comprised of 200 managerial level employees from different units of Infosys at Bangalore and NOIDA, India, and HCL at Delhi, India. Stratified random sampling technique was used to generate data. The results for the overall transactional styles reveal that there was no significant relationship between Life satisfaction and transactional styles. It is observed that there was a significant but negative correlation between role efficacy and transactional styles. About 5.19% of total contribution in determining transactional styles was jointly accounted for by the predictor variables, i.e., perceived Life Satisfaction (X1) and Role Efficacy (X2). Role Efficacy accounted for more contribution than Life Satisfaction in determining transactional styles. Relationship of the predictor variables with different transactional styles is also analyzed.

          Life satisfaction set point: stability and change.

          Using data from 17 years of a large and nationally representative panel study from Germany, the authors examined whether there is a set point for life satisfaction (LS)--stability across time, even though it can be perturbed for short periods by life events. The authors found that 24% of respondents changed significantly in LS from the first 5 years to the last 5 years and that stability declined as the period between measurements increased. Average LS in the first 5 years correlated .51 with the 5-year average of LS during the last 5 years. Height, weight, body mass index, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, and personality traits were all more stable than LS, whereas income was about as stable as LS. Almost 9% of the sample changed an average of 3 or more points on a 10-point scale from the first 5 to last 5 years of the study.
