Rocznik: 2005 Tom: 11 Numer: 1
The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between type D-personality and perceived stress; in the workplace and consequences of experienced occupational stress, it means the burnout syndrome and adverse health outcomes. 76 journalists participated in the study. 60.5% were men, 39.5% were women. The mean age was 36.7 (SD=9.72). Four methods were used in the study: D-14 scale to measure type D-personality (which consists of two dimensions: negative affectivity and social inhibition), Subjective Work Evaluation Questionnaire, Maslach Burnout Inventory and General Health Questionnaire. The results confirmed the assumption that type D-personality enhanced a sense of stress at the worksite and its negative consequences; it means the burnout syndrome and adverse health outcomes. Both dimensions of type D-personality appeared to be predictors of general health status and a sense of personal accomplishment, whereas social inhibition was the predictor of emotional exhaustion.
