Objectives: This research has been done due to a qualitative study of the causes of the
old’s occupational satisfaction referring to their occupational narrative (Lived Experiment) in
Iranian-Islamic culture and based on Shafiabady multiphasic pattern.
Method: Method of study was done to gain objective information in the mid-structured
way. In this respect, the old were interviewed about their occupational narratives and the
quality of occupational satisfaction or dissatisfaction. Then, the interview was outlined in the
way of narrative therapy and analyzed using Shafiabady multiphasic pattern.
Results: What was discussed in the study of the factors and how the old’s occupational
satisfaction is or their occupational dissatisfaction of their job narratives were presented and
categorized in the form of tables considering to Shafiabady five axes pattern including
having a goal, being dynamic, self- imaginary, requirement and decision. In the interview
processes we have encountered and achieved some other valuable factors relating to
occupational satisfaction existing in Iranian-Islamic culture.
Conclusion: One of the main times in life is the old age. If the young pay attention to
important factors, useful and valuable experiments of the old when selecting job then they
are prevented from dissatisfaction of occupation. As this study resulted from discussion with
the old in Iranian-Islamic society, most information of interviewee was capable of analysis.
So the comprehensive pattern has been proved. Other valuable pointes found in the
interviews emphasized in Iranian-Islamic culture include the role of believes and morality
such as believe in barekat - some kind of increase in material and spiritual things by God-,
thanksgiving, trust in God, conscience in act, generosity, commiserate in act and using
other’s occupational experiments and also the family support to satisfy occupationally.
However these mentioned factors corresponds Shafiabady multiphasic pattern and fitted into
five axia, in so called society some criteria are special. Through this study we have
respected this successful pattern in Iranian-Islamic culture.
