Abstract:
This study examined the personality characteristics of Christian counselors and determined whether those characteristics could be employed to predict job satisfaction. The objectives of the study included determining if Christian counselors differ from the general population on any of the nine personality traits found in the Taylor-Johnson Temperament Analysis and determining if a correlation exists between the nine traits and reported job satisfaction. Data was collected from 51 self-identified Christian counselors from Arizona and California. The results indicate that Christian counselors are more expressive-responsive and less depressive and subjective than the general population. While those Christian counselors who indicated high job satisfaction tended to be less depressive and subjective and more expressive-responsive than those who indicated medium or low job satisfaction, it was shown that personality traits are not predictive of job satisfaction in Christian counselors.
