Summary:The purpose of this study was to understand the role of coping and
personality in the experience of work-family conflict. The research
on coping and work-family conflict is limited and to my knowledge, no
study has examined coping as a possible mediator of the relationship
between personality and work-family conflict. The sample consisted of
291 employees from diverse industries. As expected, neuroticism was
related to higher levels of family-to-work conflict (FIW),
work-to-family conflict (WIF), strain-based work-family conflict
(SWFC) and time-based work-family conflict (TWFC). In partial support
of hypotheses, an internal locus of control was negatively related to
SWFC and FIW (and was not related to TWFC and WIF). Contrary to
expectations, extraversion was unrelated to the four outcome
measures. The hypothesis that active coping would be related to lower
levels of work-family conflict was not supported. However, as
expected, passive coping was related to higher levels of all four
outcome measure (SWFC, TWFC, WIF and FIW). Neuroticism was related to
higher levels of SWFC and FIW through increased levels of passive
coping. None of the other mediating tests were significant (i.e., for
locus of control or extraversion). Finally, it was hypothesized that
the adaptiveness of coping mechanisms would differ depending on the
circumstances (e.g., degree of control) and for whom (e.g.,
personality characteristics) a coping strategy was used. In this
study, none of the moderators were found to be significant (the
interaction between coping choice and perceived controllability of
the situation, as well as the interaction between personality and
coping choice). The theoretical and practical implications are
presented in the discussion section.
