Abstract This study examined the extent to which individual differences in factors such as personality and attitudes are responsible for the incidence of stress-related illness and reporting of stress-related problems through questionnaires and other monitoring processes. The work involved a meta-analysis of longitudinal studies of ill-health, work conditions and individual differences, as well as an examination of representative databases of the UK population. It was concluded that cognitive factors in the experience of unpleasant emotions might play a central role in both the development and reporting of stress-related illness.
