NORONHA, Ana Paula Porto  e  FERNANDES, Dario Cecilio. Occupational tress and inferential reasoning: a correlational study. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.4, pp. 596-607. ISSN 1414-9893.

The aim of this study was to test the relation between stress and inferential reasoning, sex and age. The instruments used in this assessment were the escala de vulnerabilidade a estressores no trabalho (EVET), and raciocínio inferencial (Rin). 64 students of Psychology and Engineering, who attended a private school on the interior of the state of São Paulo, participated in the study, 81,2% men and 18,8% women, whose age varied from 18 to 45 years (M=24, SD=5,78). Related to the factors of EVET, it was found a significant and negative correlation between the factor three (lack of organizational support) and inferential reasoning. The results showed a significant and negative correlation between EVET and Rin (r =-0,25; p=0,047), considered as an evidence of validity for EVET. The tendering indicated that the higher the level of stress, the lesser the capacity related to the g factor.
