For the second application, we again examine a first-order CFA model. How­ ever, this time we test hypotheses bearing on a single measuring instrument, the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI; Maslach & Jackson, 1981, 1986), designed to measure three dimensions of burnout, which the authors term Emotional Exhaus­ tion (EE), Depersonalization (DP), and Reduced Personal Accomplishment (PA). The term “burnout” denotes the inability to function effectively in one’s job as a consequence of prolonged and extensive job-related stress; emotional exhaus­ tion represents feelings of fatigue that develop as one’s energies become drained; depersonalization is the development of negative and uncaring attitudes toward others; and reduced personal accomplishment is a deterioration of self-confidence and dissatisfaction in one’s achievements.
