Abstract: Does an intrinsic work orientation influence the level of work-related strain? To answer this question we developed a research model which incorporates insights from the Job Demands-Resources model, the Vitamin model of Warr and The Conservation of Resources theory of Hobfoll. To test our assumptions we use a large and heterogeneous sample of the Dutch working population (TAS 2002). We find empirical evidence for most of our hypotheses: intrinsic work orientation has a significant negative effect on emotional exhaustion, buffers the positive effect of work load and enhances the negative effect of the job resources on emotional exhaustion. An extrinsic work orientation strengthens the positive effect of work load on emotional exhaustion. In line with our results we conclude that more research is needed on the role personal resources – next to job resources - play in the energetic process.
