||Negative affectivity influences report of work-related symptoms
||Dec. 1996, Vol.25, No.2, p.131-144. 35 ref.
||A number of studies have documented that negative affectivity (NA) exerts a considerable influence upon perceptual style and reporting of symptoms. The influence of NA upon reporting of work-related symptoms was investigated in three studies (N=24, N=30, N=43). For all three studies, there was a firm association between NA and visual and musculoskeletal symptoms. Results are discussed according to pain sensitivity, general activation and symptom perception. It is concluded that NA might be a methodological nuisance factor leading to over-reporting of work-related complaints. Topics: musculoskeletal diseases; neurosis; psychosomatic disorders; questionnaire survey; subjective assessment; symptoms; visual function disorders.
