Abstract

This paper presents various models for measuring the effect of being overtrained, where overtraining refers to a discrepancy between a person's training and the educational requirements of his job. The various assumptions regarding the effects of overtraining that are embodied in the different models are discussed. It is found that a simple additive model describes the effect of overtraining on job satisfaction, while a model adding interaction terms is needed to account for the effect of overtraining on job involvement.
