STRUMPFER, Deo J.W.; HARDY, Anneli; VILLIERS, Joan S. de  e  RIGBY, Susan. Organisationally relevant variables and Keyes's Mental Health Continuum Scale: an exploratory study. SA j. ind. Psychol. [online]. 2009, vol.35, n.1, pp.165-171. ISSN 2071-0763.

In an exploratory study on a sample of convenience (n = 165), 11 self-report variables with presumed organisational relevance were related, as predictors, to the three subscores and summed score of the Keyes (2005a, 2005b; 2007) Mental Health Continuum Scale (long form). Keyes's scale was administered five to seven days after the first set of scales. The predictor scores were reduced to three factorial scores, labelled positive orientation, negative orientation and positive striving. When classified thus, the predictor variables showed significant and meaningful relationships with some or all of the Keyes subscores and the total score, although few reached medium effect sizes.
