dc.description.abstract A survey of the literature implies that neurotics are unable to compete on an equal footing with non-neurotics under normal working conditions. 12 Hypotheses relating to the relative effectiveness of neurotics versus non-neurotics in the work situation are formulated. Results indicate that neurotics are not significantly poorer workers than non-neurotics, except in respect of 3 of the 12 criteria used, i.e. reporting for duty late, sickness records, amenability to discipline. Conclusions are drawn that a fresh orientation to the problem of neurosis is necessary and that neurotic workers should be judged objectively on work ability and not on their personality shortcomings. en
