Job complexity, performance, and well-being: when does supplies-values fit matter?

We extend person-job fit research by investigating job performance as a moderator of the supplies-values fit relationship with strain outcomes (somatic complaints and depression). Drawing on cybernetic stress and psychological centrality perspectives, we argue that supplies-values misfit relates to lower well-being levels when job performance is low but that this effect is attenuated when job performance is high. The results are consistent with this prediction across 3 studies that provide progressively more rigorous tests of the hypothesis. Implications of the results for theoretical and empirical person-job fit research are addressed.
