The authors investigated how work-family balance mediated therelationship between personality traits, gender roles, social support, andpsychosocial adjustment. Data were collected from 243 marriedinternational graduate students (MIGSs) studying in the United States.Results of structural equation modeling indicated that personality traitsinfluence the psychosocial adjustment process. In addition, beingextraverted, agreeable, and conscientious contributed to balancingacademic and family life, whereas having neurotic tendencies such asexperiencing depression and anxiety diminished work-family balance.Work-family balance did not mediate the relationship between personalitytraits, gender roles, social support, and psychosocial adjustment. Theauthors discussed the findings by considering clinical implications andmaking suggestions for future research.
