Abstract : The research develops an argument that actual job duties are a significant determinant of job satisfaction, especially intrinsic satisfaction, and that the degree of fit between job duties and interests in these job duties should be related to satisfaction. To test these hypotheses, data were collected on job duties, job interests, and job satisfaction from 629 naval enlisted personnel on three aircraft carriers and associated air squadrons. The results indicated how satisfaction could be predicted from job duties, and how intrinsic satisfaction was better predicted than extrinsic. (Modified author abstract)
