In recent years, the foreign researchers proposed that self-esteem, general self-efficacy, locus of control and neuroticism construct a more global, more fundamental factor, named core self-evaluation. This factor was found to be related to job satisfaction and job performance. Using a sample of university undergraduate (n244), the present study examines if the core self-evaluation fitts in the Chinese culture. A second-order factor analysis is conducted, and the factor structure is found to be perfectly fitted. At last, suggestions are made for future research.
