Aim: To increase our knowledge of the role of stress in human life, social, and physical wellbeing and to create awareness on the harmful effect of the clinical condition of stress.
Setting: The study was carried out teachers in 18 public Secondary schools in Aguata and Anaocha Local Government Councils of Anambra State Nigeria.
Method: This was a cross-sectional and descriptive study of 90 secondary school teachers using Jenkins Activity Survey Scale (Jas), Symptom Distress Checklist (Scl-90) and a sociodemographic questionnaire.
Results: On the role of gender and personality types on emotional stressful experience, a personality has the highest mean of 120.24; while type B personality has the total mean of 96.96 while on gender scale, the females have the mean of 109.67 and males have the mean of 107.13.
