These factors closely connected with the personal qualities, including the functional characteristics of the nervous system. The aim of our study was to investigate the relationship of occupational factors and coping behavior with the level of perceived stress among professionals with different resistance nervous reaction. We assume that professionals with different resistance nervous reaction will be the differences in the studied parameters. We also believe that the professional factors of perceived stress in groups provided by various coping strategies. Participants:150 adults were allocated to 2 groups: first group with the reduced nervous reaction and second group with the normal nervous reaction. Methods: “Scale of perceived stress–10” Russian version, Coping Questionnaire, Questionnaire “The professional development factors”, the technique for express diagnostics of person`s functional state. Our research showed that higher scores of professional factors noted in second group. The higher scores of coping strategies observed in first group. Using regression analysis, we have shown that the factor “satisfaction with professional activity” reduces the level of perceived stress in the first group; and in the second group a factor "emotional stability". Active use strategies “seeking social support” promote the increase to the perceived stress in both groups. Our study revealed differences in the situation of professional development, coping strategies in the groups with different levels of nervous reaction. Supported by RSF project 16-18-10088.
