Department of Psychology Shahid Chamran University


This study investigates the relationship between job boredom proneness as the predictor variable and job satisfaction and job involvement as the criterion variables. Job Boredom Proneness Scale, Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS), and Job Involvement Questionnaire (JIQ) were administered to 275 employees, working in an industrial organization, selected according to a stratified random sampling method. The results indicated that job boredom proneness and its dimensions correlate negatively and significantly with job satisfaction and job involvement. The facets of perception of time and constraint had the most important role in explaining the variances of job satisfaction and job involvement.
