Previous research on occupational well-being has often taken the circumplex model of subjective well-being in general as point of departure and noted that well-being may be classified on the basis of the dimensions of pleasantness and arousal. In contrast to prior research, Anne Mäkikangas and her colleagues use a person-oriented approach in their attempt to empirically test the circumplex model. The authors also make use of personality profiles – based on combinations of the Five-Factor Model of Personality traits – and link these profiles to the patterns of occupational well-being. While the results of the present study await replication using larger samples from other countries, Mäkikangas and her colleagues provide valuable insights into the nature of occupational well-being.
