Neurotic Personality as a Moderator Variable between Perceived Stress and Life Satisfaction in Vocational High School Students
Perceived stress is a feeling or thought that a person has for everything in his life that can cause stress. Stress experienced by adolescents affects the quality and life satisfaction of teenagers. Life satisfaction is defined as a cognitive assessment of how well and satisfying things individuals have done in their lives as a whole. Teenagers who are satisfied with their lives will enjoy life more and more likely to make a positive contribution to their environment. Teenagers who perceive stress higher will tend to feel lower life satisfaction. Especially when the teenager has a personality type with neurotic tendencies. This study uses a quantitative non-experimental approach. The purpose of this research is to know the life satisfaction of the students through the influence of perceived stress which then presents the neurotic personality as the moderator variable. The results showed that there was a significant negative effect between perceived stress and life satisfaction with the neurotic personality type as a moderator variable (beta = -.255, sig = .008). Neurotic personality in research contributes effectively to the effect of perceived stress on life satisfaction (R square 1 = .054, R square 2 = .096).
