This paper is a follow-up of a previous study on the correlates of Type A Behaviour among professional workers in South Africa. In the previous study, data were analysed for a joint group of 375 pharmacists and accountants. In the present study, the two professions are analysed separately. Product-Moment Correlation and Stepwise Multiple Regression Analysis are used to determine the relationships between Job Satisfaction, Job Involvement, a number of personality variables and Type A Behaviour in samples of accountants (N = 175) and pharmacists (N = 200). Differences between the results for the two occupations were found to exist and are discussed in this paper.
