- With the purpose to determine differences in burnout's level as function of personalities types and attendance in public or private school, a non-experimental study was designed. Burnout levels were measured with the MBI teacher's version and personalities types with the NEO-Five Factors Inventory. A set of socio-demographic variables was included. By means of ANOVA ONEWAY, differences were found in emotional exhaustion among kindergarten teachers who work in public and private school (p <= 0.05). Differences were also found between spectator and skeptic personality types in burnout levels, and between skeptic and complicated types in emotional exhaustion (p <= 0.05). These results emphasize the relevance to give attention to public school's educator and those who had high neuroticism's levels because they tend to have more burnout.
