This paper discuss findings from various countries and industries have found contrariwise with the theory, where Extrinsic Factors that should only turn up with job dissatisfactions or neutralize feelings towards jobs have indeed effected respondents’ job satisfactions. The conclusion has presented a motion to combine the two groups of Intrinsic and Extrinsic Factors as one set of determinants.
