Abstract: This study shows that in a sample of 168 managers coping exhibited certain interesting characteristics but also some expected ones. Compared with men, women tended to prefer more social support seeking (measured by CSI) as did also managers scoring high in extraversion (measured by GPTP); managers preferring thinking used less avoidant coping. Besides situation appraisal situational context too seems to be an important factor in choosing a particular coping strategy. The work context seemed to favor more problem solving strategies of coping while interpersonal context as well as stressors appraised as loss were related to more avoidant coping. Taken together, personal and situational factors explained 20-30% of the variability of three studied coping strategies.
