Abstract

Several negative emotions as stress, tiredness and dissatisfaction within intense work environment in the organizational context can give employees to develop a burnout response. We focused the personality as have an impact in predicting the emerging burnout response in employees, and we explored the roles of the personality in the burnout processes. The data, gathered from 313 primary school teachers, were analyzed with using structural equation modeling. Results showed that personality dimensions as extrovert, emotional stability and conscientiousness predicted the emotional exhaustion; extrovert, agreeableness and conscientiousness predicted the depersonalization; and just conscientiousness predicted the reduced personal accomplishment as dimensions of burnout response. All the results suggested that personality characteristics had important effects in predicting burnout response dimensions and the implications were discussed in the light of the findings of the studies in related literature.
