Stress experienced at worksite is commonly recognized as a factor affecting workers' health and productivity. Subjective nature of stress is generally accepted by researchers into this field. Therefore, it is very important to know the role of personality traits in determining the level of experienced stress. 833 police officers participated in the presented study. The following variables were assessed: perceived stress at work (dependent variable) and: sense of coherence, self-efficacy, Big Five Personality Factors (neuroticism, extraversion, openness to experience, agreeableness, conscientiousness) and temperament domains (strength of excitatory process, strength of inhibitory process, equilibrium of nervous processes). A results analysis proved that ten personality variables explained 35.9 % of perceived job stress variability. Only three of them were correlated with the level of stress on a statistically significant level: sense of coherence (r = -.40), neuroticism (r = .17), and strength of excitatory process (r = -.09).
