Background
This study investigates the dual mediation effect of evaluative concerns perfectionism and mindfulness in the relationship between temperament and depression among office workers.
Methods
220 Korean office workers completed online surveys measuring levels of FCB-TI perseveration (PE) and emotional reactivity (ER), evaluative concerns perfectionism, mindfulness, and depression.
Results
The data analysis results showed that evaluative concerns perfectionism and mindfulness both mediated the relationship between temperament types and depression. Additionally, evaluative concerns perfectionism and mindfulness had dual mediating effect between temperament and depression.
Conclusions
Based on the results of this study, PE and ER temperament could increase the level of evaluative concerns perfectionism, decreasing the level of mindfulness and increasing the risk of depression. The findings highlight the potential value of mindfulness-based interventions focusing on alleviating perfectionism concerning others’ evaluation for preventing and treating depression in office settings.

Background
Temperament plays an important role in adapting to different environments. The purpose of this study is to investigate the differences between temperament clusters, time management behavior, quality of life, and work-life balance.
Methods
A total of 216 participants (male=56, female=160, mean age: 31.92 years) completed questionnaires measuring temperament, time management behavior, quality of life, and work-life balance.
Results
Data from the study shows that temperamental profiles are classified into three groups. The profile of “Adaptive Solver” was associated with the most beneficial traits, and that of “Chronic Worrier” was associated with the most disadvantageous traits.
Conclusions
The findings of this study confirm that temperaments are related to psychological adjustment. This study provides an implication for considering individual differences in the intervention for psychological adaptation of workers.

Abstract PDF
Background
As the number of people working from home has increased since the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to understand workers’ stress and psychological state while working from home. Work-family conflict and loneliness may be related to working from home, and they could be experienced differently depending on individual traits. Therefore, this study examined the parallel multiple mediating effects of work-family conflict and loneliness in the relationship between personal temperaments and negative emotions such as depression and anxiety.
Methods
Data were collected online from people currently working from home for at least one month, more than once per week. They answered K-DASS-21, UCLA loneliness scale, Work-Family Conflict, and FCB-TI. Only four temperaments were used in the statistic step: Briskness and Sense sensitivity as protective factors and Perseveration and Emotional reactivity as vulnerable factors. The multiple mediating effects were analyzed independently by using the PROCESS macro.
Results
Firstly, Briskness and Sense sensitivity were found to negatively affect depression and anxiety while working from home by significantly mediating work-family conflict and loneliness. Thus, these temperaments would be protective factors while working from home. Secondly, Perseveration and Emotional reactivity positively influenced both negative emotions by mediating two mediation variables, which means that both temperaments are vulnerable factors.
Conclusions
The results suggest that personality traits can impact how people experience stress and negative emotions in working situations, leading to negative psychological states. Consequently, personal temperaments would be important to understand relationships between environments and internal experiences.
