Abstract

Participants in the experiment were undergraduate psychology students from Eastern Kentucky University (n=79). This experiment examined the relationship between technological reliability, supervisor support, and stress. Reliable and unreliable technology were crossed with a supportive and unsupportive supervisor. Preliminary results from the univariate ANOVA have shown that only one of our four hypotheses were correct. The difference in supportive and unsupportive conditions was not significant. However, unreliable technology did result in significantly more stress than reliable technology. Unfortunately, this means that supervisor supportiveness did not reduce stress more than the reliability of technology, and that the unsupportive-unreliable condition did not have the highest amount of stress compared to the other conditions.
