The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationship between personal resources and subjective well-being by focusing on the moderation role of resource threatening and consuming conditions on this relationship.
The quantitative research data were collected from a sample of 465 lawyers working in Turkey by using a self-report questionnaire form. The confirmatory factor analysis, correlation and regression analyses were performed to test the research hypothesis.
The results showed that personal resources influence positively subjective well-being with the three-way interactions (moderated moderation) of surface acting and perceived stress. The interactions between variables were significant at the conditions of the high level of surface acting and the low level of stress.
The current research contributes to our understanding of how personal resources can be consumed in such a way that individual well-being is enhanced. The findings also raise a new question about whether or not surface acting causes negative consequences in all conditions.
