It is a non-experimental research within a correlational descriptive design. The instruments used were the Catells 16 Personality Factors Inventory (16PF), the Maslash Burnout Inventory (MBI), a semi-structured interview and an observational register. Data were analysed by descriptive statistics and Spearman correlation. Additionally, multivariate covariance analysis (MANCOVA) and Pearson correlation were used in special cases.
