dc.description.abstract The principal aim of the study was to examine the relationship between the Type A personality, optimal experience (Flow) and career success orientation. Three questionnaires measuring the above-mentioned constructs were administered to 200 managers from a variety of South African organisations representing all organisational functions, genders and cultural groups. Using Flow and Type A as input variables, the sample was divided into four homogeneous clusters with the aid of a clustering technique. By means of a factor analysis, four career success orientations were identified and four scales were constructed accordingly. The four clusters were compared with one another in terms of career success orientation. From the analysis it transpired that Type As did not experience their work in an optimal way. However, in terms of career success orientation, type As obtained the highest mean scores. en
