Summary

Using five years of longitudinal data from the UK Understanding Society Survey, this study finds that young people with lower levels of life satisfaction are less likely to go on to find a job. The strength of the effect is determined by personality, such that the negative impact of low life satisfaction is only significant for introverts (those scoring below average on an extraversion scale), and not extraverts (those scoring above average).
