The current study investigated the psychological processes of feelings of acclimation and job stress in a sample of 94 new hires extracted from a factory construction company and Mechanical Turk. The aforementioned variables were assessed with respect to differences in new hire Extraversion and Proactivity and a causal model was tested. Several bivariate correlations were found to be statistically significant as well as mediation model. These included a moderate and negative relationship between new hire feelings of Stress and feelings of Acclimation and the identification of Proactivity as a mediator in the correlational relationship between Extraversion and Feelings of Acclimation. A discussion of our findings, future research proposals, and limitations is also included.
