Nearly 250 telephone sales employees completed the Eysenck Personality Inventory, and scores were related to periods of sick leave, total number of days sick leave over a 1 yr period, supervisor's performance and potential rating. Young extraverts had most periods of sick leave and stable extraverts received higher potential and performance ratings. These results are discussed in terms of the previous literature in the field. © 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
