Abstract

Workaholism is a syndrome identified in individuals with excessive compulsive behaviors and beliefs into work activities,
and to establish a pattern of behavior oriented and pro-competitive behavior by hostile personality. This paper presents
a structured pattern of behavior syndrome and 184 workers in an institution of educational services analysis. Through
an instrument which combined elements DUWAS-measuring short version and a questionnaire that identifies Behavior
Patterns Based on Personality. With the instrument designed, a linear probability model (MLP) was proposed. It was
reported that the variables UT and CP had a significant effect on work addiction. The model presented argues that the
addiction of work, is manifested in those people who believe to have an obsessive compulsion to work, and behave with
excessive and multiple actions of work, besides having an urgency for the time to fulfill their work impulses.
