Examined episodic coping and situational anger-reactivity in relation to optimism and pessimism. 43 bank employees (mean age 36.8 yrs) were assessed on a battery of tests to gather data on anger provoking work stressors. The contextual features of the stressor, temporal, social, and psychological context were assessed. Optimism and pessimism were measured using the Life Orientation Test (M. F. Scheier and C. S. Carver, 1985). Coping was assessed using the Ways of Coping Inventory (Folkman et al, 1986). Anger reactivity was also measured. Results show that scores on an optimism subscale were positively correlated with confrontative and accept-responsibility coping, and inversely related to escape-avoidance coping. Pessimism scores were positively related to escape-avoidance coping and inversely to levels of stress-induced anger reactivity. Neither pessimism nor optimism were related to levels of stress-induced anger reactivity.
