Maryam Zirakja, Seyedeh Maryam Hosseini

Abstract


The present study was aimed at predicting occupational stress on the basis of the personality traits and irrational beliefs of the employees at Shiraz Airport. With respect to the methodology and results, the present study was of correlation and applied nature, respectively. Population of the present study included 400 employees of Shiraz Airport in 2017 out of which a number of 174 employees (108 males and 66 females) were selected through non-random availability sampling method as the sample population of the study. Three questionnaires were employed in the study: Wolfgang Job Stress Questionnaire, Neo Personality Questionnaire, and Jones Irrational Beliefs Questionnaire. The results of the study indicated that there is a positive and statistically significant relationship between personality traits and occupational stress. Furthermore, the findings of the study were indicative of the fact that there is a positive and statistically significant relationship between irrational beliefs and occupational stress. To be more concise, from among the aspects of the personality traits, merely the aspect of extraversion has a statistically significant relationship with occupational stress. On the other hand, with respect to the irrational beliefs, only the aspect of prostration against change has a statistically significant relationship with occupational stress.
