You are mellow in your work, with almost no job-related stress. As long as you continue at this level, you are practically burnout-proof. A note to remember: Although you may currently have a low burnout score, others may not be as fortunate.
Awareness, understanding, and support may be required.
You have a low amount of work-related stress and are unlikely to burn out. Look over those questions on which you scored sometimes to often and always, and think about what you can do to reduce the stresses involved.
This is a sign that you have a fair chance of burning out unless you take corrective measures. For each question on which you scored often or awalys, consider ways you can reduce the stresses involved. As soon as possible, take action to improve your attitude or the situation surrounding those things that trouble you most.
You have a high amount of work-related stress and may have begun to burn out. Mark the questions on which your scored often or always, and rank them in order of their effect on you, beginning with the ones that bother you the most. For at least your top three, evaluate what you can do to reduce the stresses involved, and act to improve conditions. If your body is reflecting the stress, get a medical checkup.
You are experiencing a very high level of stress in your work. Without some changes in yourself or your situation, your potential for stress-related illness is high. Consider seeking professional help for stress reduction and burnout prevention. Coping with stress at this level may also require help from others – supervisors, co-workers, and other associates at work, and your spouse and other family members at home
