VAN WYK, René et al. Prediction of Type A behaviour: a structural equation model. SA j. ind. Psychol. [online]. 2009, vol.35, n.1, pp. 58-66. ISSN 0258-5200.

The predictability of Type A behaviour was measured in a sample of 375 professionals with a shortened version of the Jenkins Activity Survey (JAS). Two structural equation models were constructed with the Type A behaviour achievement sub-scale and global (total) Type A as the predictor variables. The indices showed a reasonable-to-promising fit with the data. Type A achievement was reasonably predicted by service-career orientation, internal locus of control, power self-concept and economic innovation. Type A global was also predicted by internal locus of control, power self-concept and the entrepreneurial attitude of achievement and personal control.

Palabras clave : coronary-prone behaviour; stress-linked disease; locus of control; Type A behaviour; structural equation model.
