Abstract: Research has shown that the beneficial effects of positive events can be enhanced through capitalisation or the sharing of positive events with another person. Since then, a growing body of research has found several intrapersonal and interpersonal benefits from capitalising on daily positive events. More recently, the effects of capitalisation were also examined in the work domain. Work-family interpersonal capitalisation or the sharing of positive work events with one’s partner, was found to predict job satisfaction. While the literature on the benefits of capitalisation has increased, little is known about moderators that alter the strength of these relationships. To address this gap, we explored the moderating role of dispositions in the links between work-family interpersonal capitalisation and two intrapersonal outcomes. Specifically, we examined the moderating roles of approach temperament and self-esteem on the relationship between (i) capitalisation and positive affect and (ii) capitalisation and job satisfaction. A quantitative, cross-sectional survey design was adopted in the study. Data collected from 96 participants were analysed using multiple regression. The findings did not provide support for the hypotheses as the dispositional variables did not moderate the relationships. Practical implications, limitations and directions for future research are discussed.
