The present research was designed to explore the relationship of personality types; (a) Type A and B, and (b) locus of control affecting job satisfaction. A sample of 300 lecturers randomly selected from eight departments of Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Bahauddin Zakaryia University Multan, Pakistan, completed Anjum Khalique Type A Behavior Pattern Scale (Anjum & Khalique, 1991), Personal Efficacy Scale (Paulhus, 1983) and General Job Satisfaction Questionnaire (Hackman & Oldham, 1976). Results indicated that employees with a combination of personality traits of type B behavior pattern and internal locus of control report more satisfaction with their jobs than employees with type A behavior pattern and external locus of control.
