English abstract
This paper shows that integrating and segmenting are complementary processes in individual’s work/non-work experiences. This paper is based on individuals’ self-narratives of 6 French middle-managers. This paper analyse qualitatively integrating and segmenting as work/non-work preferences and as work/non-work activities. It reveals that segmenting and integrating are experienced as two parallel strategies. Reaching long-term integration between one’s life domains is a long-term process essential to one’s work/non-work balance. However, such long-term objectives require in our contemporary and integrative society to daily segment some central work/non-work activities by drawing some of our boundaries more clearly on daily and short term. Their complementarities renders complexity to the segmentation-integration continuum leading to consider five archetypes of individuals in regard to their work/non-work experiences.
