Examines the relationship of workaholism type to indicators of psychological and physical well-being using measures developed by J. T. Spence and A. S. Robbins (see record 1992-18384-001). Data were collected from 530 male and female managers and professionals using anonymous questionnaires. Measures included workaholism types, work involvement, driveness, work enjoyment, psychological well-being, psychosomatic symptoms, lifestyle behaviors, and emotional well-being. The results indicate a relationship between workaholism and poorer emotional and physical well-being. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)
