This study aimed to explore the relationship among several variables expected to relate to and predict personal adaptability, with a focus on the relationship between proactive personality and personal adaptability. Optimism and spirituality will be explored as moderators of the proactive personality-personal adaptability relationship. The following predictions were made: proactive personality, optimism, and spirituality are positively related to personal adaptability, and both optimism and spirituality will strengthen the relationship between proactive personality and personal adaptability. A total of 222 participants were recruited via MTurk. Results indicated that proactive personality and personal adaptability were positively associated with each other. In addition, positive associations were found between optimism and personal adaptability, as well as between spirituality and personal adaptability. Neither optimism nor spirituality moderated the association between proactive personality and personal adaptability. Implications are discussed.
