Pocos estudios en la literatura han relacionado el bienestar organizacional y el temperamento según el modelo bio-psico-social de Cloninger. Este trabajo investiga la relación entre las dimensiones del temperamento (NS; HA; RD) y el carácter (CO; SD; ST; P) y las dimensiones del bienestar organizacional en el personal de Obstetricia y Ginecología. Treinta y ocho sujetos, predominantemente mujeres (89.5%), con edades comprendidas entre 18 y 63 años, participaron en el estudio (M=50.20 SD=9.81). Se utilizó la versión extendida del Inventario de Temperamento y Carácter de R. Cloninger et al. (1994) y el cuestionario C.I.V.I.T. Surgieron correlaciones positivas entre la Autodirección y las percepciones positivas del contexto y el trabajo, y correlaciones negativas entre la Autodirección y las percepciones negativas de la seguridad laboral y la discriminación. El bienestar laboral puede estar relacionado con ciertos rasgos de carácter en lugar de temperamento, y esta correlación sugiere una conexión entre la personalidad y la adaptación laboral.
