We sought an integrative perspective on relations among work and nonwork stress and satisfaction in terms of their similarity in life domain (work vs. non-work) and psychological outcome (satisfaction vs. stress) facets. In a sample of American “insulated sojourners,” we hypothesized stronger relations among outcomes (and their putative determinants) which shared either the life domain or psychological outcome facet, than among outcomes which shared neither facet in common. Results were generally supportive, indicating that psychological outcomes in at least two life spheres are distinguishable and may relate to one another in predictable ways.
