Herzberg's Motivator-Hygiene Theory has had a significant impact on human motivation research; however, several factors related to the theory have been overlooked. The purposes of this thesis were to develop an objective instrument with which to measure job satisfaction and job dissatisfaction; to determine how an employee would react when his motivator and hygiene needs are frustrated; and to look at the relationship between job satisfaction and job dissatisfaction and certain personality, intellectual environmental factors.
