The purpose of this study is to identify specific burnout patterns among Korean students. Using a cluster analysis procedure and the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Student Survey, four clusters were identified: (1) distressed group; (2) laissez-faire group; (3) persevering group; and (4) well-functioning group. In addition, the results of categorical regression analysis indicated that self-esteem and Grade Point Average (GPA) were good discriminators between the four clusters. Specifically, students who self-identified as not experiencing burnout (well-functioning group) were found to have the highest scores on GPA and positive self-esteem. Practical implications for educators are discussed. Copyright � 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
