The paper discusses the results of a research of the workers perception of their work milieu with regard to its stable features and changes which take place in it. The research was meant as a basis for the creation of a typology of adaptability which would enable future large scale diagnostical studies. A 40-point questionnaire was used in the study (Version A - "What is it like now?" and version В - "What was it like before?"). It was offered to 100 workers (80 men and 20 women) aged 18-58, and working at the plant from 11 to 20 years. The questionnaire consisted of 4 groups of questions referring to 1. Changes which, according to the workers, took place in their work milieu, 2. organizational and physical conditions of work, 3. the social milieu of work, and 4. the aims and aspirations of workers in view of their work. A comparison of the results in versions A and В of the questionnaire made possible the estimation of the degree of perceived changes while the comparison of groups of perceptively sensitive persons and persons exhibiting various degrees of adaptation yielded a typology of adaptability.
