    Abstract

    Continuous shiftworkers of both genders who like shiftwork and report fewer digestive problems have higher scores on hardiness than those who dislike shiftwork. Whether this is a causal, consequential or accidental relationship requires a longitudinal investigation. It is also not clear how far 'hardiness' is a personality measure, a behavioural style, a coping strategy, or a consequence of the stress of shiftwork.
