Abstract

Une vaste étude de terrain sur les symptômes subjectifs de fatigue a révélé trois patterns caractéristiques. Le premier, dans lequel « somnolence et engourdissement » dominent, est fréquent tant parmi les sujets qui signalent de nombreux symptômes de fatigue que parmi ceux qui en signalent peu, mais il n'en est pas pour autant caractéristique d'un type particulier de travail. Le second, dans lequel prévaut une « impossibilité de concentration » , est plus fréquent parmi les sujets qui signalent de nombreux symptômes de fatigue et est caractéristique des travailleurs intellectuels 1 surtout après le travail de nuit. Le troisième pattern, dans lequel la conscience d'un malaise physique est caractéristique, se trouve principalement chez les sujets qui signalent peu de symptômes de fatigue et sont engagés dans un travail physique. An extensive field survey of subjective symptoms of fatigue revealed three characteristic patterns. One, in which « drowsiness and dullness » predominated, was frequent both among those who reported many symptoms and those who reported few and was not characteristic of any particular type of work. A second, in which « inability to concentrate » was prominent, was more frequent among those who reported many symptoms and was characteristic of mental workers, especially after night work. A third pattern, in which awareness of physical discomfort was characteristic, was found mainly among those who reported few symptoms and were engaged in physical work.
