The Effect of Machine Pacing of Simulated Inspection Tasks on Physiological and Psychological Stress Reactions

Roll, Norma 09 1900 (has links) (PDF)
University of Central Florida College of Arts and Sciences Thesis / The purpose of this study was to obtain data on the impact of machine-paced industrial inspectin tasks upon workers. Psychological and physiological stress reaction measures were gathered from subjects under simulated work conditions. Typical stress indicators such as heart rate, electromyograph readings, temperature, and psychological stress scales comprised the raw data. After being subjected to statistical analysis, results and conclusions will be discussed in order to gain knowledge and insight as to the stress reactions of the machine-paced inspectin worker, and to provide implications for further research. / Includes abstract. Thesis (M.S.) - University of Central Florida, Orlando, 1981. Bibliography: leaves [51]-54. / M.S. / Masters / Arts and Sciences / Industrial Psychology / 54 p. / viii, 54 leaves, bound : ill. ; 28 cm.

Role ambiguity, role conflict, type A-B behavior, job performance, and psychosomatic dysfunction

Mattone, John Steven 10 1900 (has links) (PDF)
University of Central Florida College of Social Sciences Thesis / The main purpose of the present study was to determine empirically whether differences in perceived role conflict, role ambiguity, and Type A proclivities are associated with differences in perceived psychosomatic dysfunction. Moreover, an ancillary purpose of the present study was to determine whether differences in perceived job performace were associated with Type A-B tendencies and perceived role conflict and ambiguity. Data for 72 workers from all levels of two types of organizations (i.e., citizen protection and health) were obtained. All workers completed a role conflict and ambiguity measure, a 15-item self-report index of psychosomatic dysfunction, a 7-poimt measure of job performance, and the Jenkins Activity Survey (Form C) which was designed to tap the Type A behavior pattern. On the basis of their health reports, workers were classified into one of the following two groups: (a) psychosomatic, and (2) "no" psychosomatic. In order to identify whether differences in vectors, comprised of measures or role conflict, role ambiguity, and Type A-B behavior, existed among the two health groups, a discriminant function analysis was used. The only function extracted resulted in a Wilks' lambda of .8625 (p<.01). Moreover, Type A-B behavior and role conflict were found to contribute .798 and .201 to unit variance, respectively. In order to determine whether differences in perceived job performace were associated with Type A-B tendencies and perceived role conflict and ambiguity, two 3 x 2 fixed effects ANOVAs were performed. Significant main effects were found for role conflict (p<.005) and Type A-B behavior (p<.05). Neither interaction term proved significant. In sum, the results indicate that differences in perceived stress, as defined by role conflict, and Type A proclivities are associated with differences in perceived psychosomatic dysfunction. Moreover, Type B persons' perceptions concerning their own job performance are more favorable than Type A persons' perceptions concerning their own job performance, and this holds regardless of the perceived intensity of the stressor. Finally, persons under perceived "moderate" levels of stressor intensity were found to have significantly more favorable perceptions concerning their own job performance, than those who were under either perceived "low" or "high" levels of stressor intensity. This relationship help regardless of Type A or Type B proclivities. / Includes abstract. Thesis (M.S.) - University of Central Florida.
