Administered inventories of 7-19 intrinsic and 8-17 extrinsic needs to 209 teachers, 25 laboratory workers, 27 psychiatric team workers, 86 building workers, 67 special education teachers, 68 nurses, and 141 youth counselors (N = 623). While persistence at work was positively correlated with intrinsic needs, no correlation was found with extrinsic needs. Results are generally consistent across populations. Data are compared with a previous study of nurses, dentists, policewomen, social workers, and youth counselors. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
