J. Weitz (1952) argued that job dissatisfaction would be more predictive of turnover if it was considered in light of an individual's predisposition to be satisfied with everyday life events.
In the present study it was hypothesized that affective disposition moderates the relationship between job satisfaction and voluntary turnover.
With data collected from a sample of nurses, support was indicated for the hypothesis.
The more positive the disposition of the individual, the stronger the relationship that was observed between job dissatisfaction and turnover.
Furthermore, individuals dissatisfied with their jobs but positively disposed to life in general were the individuals most likely to quit.
Implications of the results for future research and practice are discussed.
