dc.description.abstract The purpose of the analysis was to translate the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) into Afrikaans and to evaluate the metrical qualities of the translated and adjusted questionnaire, as well as to establish the difference between ministers with high and low burn-out, with regard to specific personality traits, anxiety, self-actualization and demographical and work-related variables. The research design was of an ex post facto nature. The test sample consisted of 82 ministers of the Dutch Reformed Church of the Ring of Western Transvaal. They were randomly selected. The MBI was used to determine burn-out, the Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (16-PF) to measure the primary personality traits, the IPAT Anxiety Scale to measure free-floating manifested anxiety and the Personal Orientation Inventory (POI) for the measurement of self-actualization. A semi-structured questionnaire was used to obtain information about the demographical, work-related and other variables of the experimental subjects. To determine the reliability of the inventory, Kuder Richardson coefficients were computed for the various subscales of the adjusted MBI. Determination of validity involved the calculation of Bravais-Pearson correlation coefficients between the various subscales in relation to each other and between other criterion measurements. The U-test of Mann-Whitney was conducted to determine whether persons with low and high burn-out vary with regard to specific personality traits, anxiety and self-actualization. Fisher's test of Exact Probability was used to establish whether these ministers differ notably as far as demographical and work-related variables are concerned. The most significant results are the following: - The adjusted and translated MBI appears to reliable and valid for the determination burn-out of Dutch Reformed ministers. - There was a significant difference between ministers in the high and those in the low burn-out groups with regard to certain primary personality traits, anxiety, self-actualization and work-related factors. - No significant difference was found between the two groups with regard to demographical variables. en
