 Results: The results showed that the relationship of the staffs’ general health with their neuroticism was direct (r=0/542) and with extraversion and agreeableness was reverse(r=-0/38, -0/34). But, it was not correlated with flexibility and responsibility . General health is inversely related to the three job satisfaction components(nature of work, job promotion, salary & job satisfaction total score) and it was irrelevant with the satisfaction of coworkers and supervisors. Lower general health was associated with neuroticism and good general health was associated with extraversion and agreeableness. Lower general health was also associated with lower job satisfaction and vice versa. Also there was a correlation between nature of work satisfaction and extraversion(p=0/01).
