Abstract

Drawing on data provided by 338 clergy serving in the Church in Wales this study reports the development of a 14-item instrument designed to provide independent measures of preference for morning activity (the Lark preference) and preference for evening activity (the Owl preference) appropriate for use among clergy. The thesis is then tested that these preferences predict individual differences in clergy work-related psychological health, as assessed by the Francis Burnout Inventory, after taking into account the effects of sex and personality (extraversion and neuroticism). The data demonstrated that clergy who displayed the Lark preference for mornings were less likely to suffer from burnout. Clergy who displayed the Owl preference for evenings were neither more nor less likely to suffer from burnout. Although significantly correlated the two preference measures are related differently to individual differences in levels of burnout.
