Abstract [en]

This study investigates the impact of childhood general mental ability on adult job satisfaction using a longitudinal sample of about 1 000 women and men followed from age 10 to age 48. Differences were examined with respect to both general mental ability and job satisfaction between different occupational levels and occupational areas, as was the relationship between ability and job satisfaction within the different occupational levels and areas. Results show that general mental ability and job satisfaction vary between different occupational levels and areas. Some tendencies towards linear relationships and interactions were found.The interaction effects were shown between occupational level and gender. The results indicated that childhood general mental ability may contribute to a self-selection into adult working life, which, in turn, has implications for long-term health.
