RIBEIRO, Wilma Raquel Barbosa; GONDIM, Sônia Maria Guedes  and  PEREIRA, Cícero Roberto. Personality and subjective well-being of workers: moderation of emotional regulation. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.70, n.1, pp. 239-259. ISSN 1809-5267.

This research aimed to test the moderating role of two modes of emotional regulation - up-regulation of the positive emotions and down-regulation of the negative emotions - in predicting subjective well-being (SWB) having as antecedent variable two personality dimensions, extraversion and neuroticism. 310 workers were selected non-randomly. In data collection, it were used Big Five personality factors inventory, Subjective well-Being scale and Profile of emotional regulation. Descriptive statistics, correlation and multiple regression analyzes were performed. Moderating effects were identified in the up-regulation of positive emotions in the relations between the two personality traits and SWB. The use of upward strategies benefited the well-being of workers with traits of introversion and neuroticism, in a direct mode, increasing the SWB, or indirect, reducing the levels of negative affects.
