This study examined antecedents and consequences of workaholism among 327 women and men in a variety of professional and managerial jobs. Three workaholism types were considered (Work Enthusiasts, Work Addicts, Enthusiastic Addicts) using measures developed by Spence and Robbins (1992). Antecedents included a number of personal demographic and work situation characteristics, and measures of three aspects of perfectionism. Consequences included several validating job behaviors and work outcomes likely to be associated with workaholism. Although the three workaholism types were similar on personal and work situation characteristics, Work Addicts indicated greater perfectionism, more difficulty delegating tasks to others, less job satisfaction, and lower levels on three measures of work engagement than one or both of the other workaholism types. Interestingly, Work Addicts worked fewer hours per week than did Enthusiastic Addicts.
