Abstract

This article explores the relationship between the coping resources (as measured by the ) and personality types (as measured by the ) of a sample of 49 secondary school teachers in Gauteng. The results indicate that personality types differ in terms of the level of their coping resources and that the participants' personality types have a significant influence on the level of their coping resources. The findings show that it can be helpful for educators and school principals to be sensitive to the different ways in which each personality type copes with stress and the coping resources available to them. Recommendations are made to promote the overall well-being of teachers in the South African school environment.


Hierdie artikel verken die verband tussen die hanteringshulpmiddele (soos gemeet deur die ) en persoonlikheidstipes (soos gemeet deur die ) van 'n steekproef van 49 sekondêre skoolonderwysers in Gauteng. Die resultate dui daarop dat persoonlikheidstipes verskil in terme van die vlak van hanteringshulpmiddele en dat die deelnemers se persoonlikheidstipes klaarblyklik 'n beduidende invloed op beskikbare hanteringshulpmiddele het. Die bevindinge toon dat dit waardevol vir opvoeders en skoolhoofde mag wees om sensitief te wees omtrent die maniere waarop elke persoonlikheidstipe stres hanteer en die hanteringshulpmiddele tot hulle beskikking. Aanbevelings word gemaak vir die bevordering van onderwysers in die Suid-Afrikaanse skoolomgewing se algemene welstand.
