This chapter discusses the theoretical and empirical literatures on job attitudes instantiated as job satisfaction. Job satisfaction, generally defined as a set of affective responses to job characteristics, is assessed as judgment‐based, cognitive evaluations of characteristics or dimensions of.

The primary objectives of job characteristics theory (JCT) are to explain how properties of the organizational tasks people perform affect their work attitudes and behavior, and to identify the conditions under which these effects are likely to be strongest.

But he wasn’t just the richest man around. Job was very highly regarded by all the people of his day. Job attitudes matter because jobs matter—to people’s identities, to their health, and to their evaluations of their lives.
