Abstract

Data was collected using the Maslach Burnout Inventory and Minnesota Job Satisfaction Scale. Blood samples 5 cc were taken to measure the testosterone hormone level. Data was analysed using SPSS 20.

Results: There were 95 females with a mean age of 33.6±7.1 years (range: 18-53 years). The level of exhaustion was high in 64(67.3%) subjects, intermediate in 20(21%) and low in 11(11.5%). the difference among the groups in relation to testosterone levels was significant (p<0.05). Though the difference in testosterone levels in the groups in terms of job satisfaction was also noted, it was not statistically significant (p>0.05).

Conclusion: Hormone levels released from endocrine systems were found to be affected by psychosocial factors.
