oa Journal of Psychology in Africa - Type A behaviour and burnout among bank managers in Nigeria



This study examines the relationship between Type A behaviour and burnout. Data were gathered from 200 bank managers of four banks in Nigeria, with a mean age of 35.5 years (Age range: 20-65 years, SD=5.70) using a Type A behaviour scale. Results revealed that Type A employees reported more symptoms of burnout than Type B personalities on all measures of burnout: emotional exhaustion, depersonalisation, and sense of personal accomplishment. The observed relationship between burnout and Type A behaviour remains significant for job related stress, environmental and personality factors. The need to cope and manage stress and burnout in enhancing employee overall wellbeing is suggested.
