Abstract : Two small studies used data from civilian employees of three naval shipyards: Brooklyn, New York, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and Norfolk, Virginia. In study one, the relationships were slight of personality to job satisfaction and cohesiveness. For the yards, only the anomie measure showed some (low) consistency. In study two, contrary to expectations, the results showed more reports of ailments from the Norfolk (no stress) group than from the Portsmouth or Brooklyn longitudinal subsamples. A discussion is also included concerning dilemmas about definitions and taxonomies for stress, and some final points on the data from the project. (Author)
