The main aim of this research was to define the calculated personality five big characteristics model for the total job satisfaction The Big Five Inventory (BFI, John, Donahue and Kentle, 1991), as well as the 9 aspects of job satisfaction, which were measured on the Job Satisfaction Survey scale (JSS, Spector, 1985). Except the personality characteristics, as the predictor type, the trainer variables of gender and work experience were researched. The examinees sample consisted of 126 football, basketball, volleyball and handball trainers in permanent employment on the territory of Belgrade. According to the achieved results of the multivariate covariance analysis and hierarchy multiple regression analysis the conclusion, that for the relevant prediction of trainer job satisfaction distinguish the trainers who have high scores on the pleasant and neuroticism scales, was made. For the satisfactory prediction in some aspects of trainer job the three personality trainer pleasantness, conscientiousness and neuroticism characteristics are separated from the whole. The categorical trainer variables (gender and working experience) - as predictors didn’t show statistically significant.
