Abstract

The vast majority of the core self-evaluations (CSE) studies has been conducted in Western cultures. In an attempt to extend this research into a different culture, the present study tested the factor structure of a Turkish version of the CSE scale and examined the relationship of CSE to job satisfaction, life satisfaction, and affective commitment. Data were collected in student (n = 216) and field samples (n = 321). The results confirmed the proposed one-factor structure of the Turkish version of the CSE scale as well as its convergent and discriminant validity. CSE (measured in time period 1) was significantly related to job satisfaction, life satisfaction, and affective commitment (measured in time period 2 which was three months later). The authors concluded that the CSE is predictive of key career-related outcomes in Turkey’s collectivist culture.
