COMPARISON BETWEEN KUWAITI AND EGYPTIAN TEACHERS IN TYPE A BEHAVIOR AND JOB SATISFACTION: A CROSS-CULTURAL STUDY
Abstract:This study investigates the differences between males and females on the one hand, and between Egyptian and Kuwaiti teachers on the other. It also aims to examine the correlation between Type A behavior and job satisfaction. The sample consists of 406 teachers (109 females and 279 males; 253 Kuwaiti, 153 Egyptian). Tools used in this study are: Scales of Type Abehavior (Abdel-Khalek & Chukry, 1991), and job satisfaction (Cooper, Sloan, & Williams, 1998). Results reveal that there are no significant differences between males and females in Type A behavior, however there are significant differences between males and females in job satisfaction, organization structure, and satisfaction of organizational process. Results also reveal a significant difference between Kuwaiti and Egyptian teachers in the research variables. In addition to the above, results indicate significant positive correlations between Type A behavior and job satisfaction.
