          Abstract

          We aimed to examine the comprehensive effects of individual personality traits, interpersonal conflict-handling styles, and organizational characteristics on job satisfaction as perceived by childcare teachers. The sample comprised 179 childcare teachers in South Korea. Survey results revealed that organizational characteristics, such as rewards, director support, collegial relationships, and participation in organizational decision making, positively affected job satisfaction. In addition, job satisfaction was increased by the influence dimension of personality profiles, whereas it was not significantly influenced by conflict-handling styles. The findings in this study suggest that the structural and operating conditions of childcare centers should be improved to increase teachers' job satisfaction.
