The purpose of this research was to provide additional support to validate the newly created Truman Burnout Inventory (TBI). Participants were 119 alumni, the majority (65%) holding a Bachelor’s degree, and 68 being female. Alumni came from a variety of occupations (e.g., education, management, financial). Factor analysis supported the existence of three distinct sub-scales (i.e., emotional exhaustion, cynicism, and professional efficacy). The factor loadings supported the placement of the respective items on each sub-scale. The reliability of each scale was also acceptable. Coefficient Alpha for Emotional Exhaustion was .89, for cynicism was .87, and for professional efficacy was .84. Our results provide further support for the usage of the free TBI as an alternative to the costly MBI-GS.

Keywords: burnout, burnout inventory, scale reliability, emotional exhaustion, cynicism, efficacy
